Question by Joey Doolittle: How does an independent filmmaker get a major retailer (Wal-Mart, for instance) to distribute his/her DVDs?
Answer by klik
By picking up the phone and calling VP Sales of walmart. Explaining how you can make them money and why walmart shoppers will rush to buy this movie. Which they won’t because to sell a movie you need a massive marketing machine.
Who is your target group? Kids, adults, young mothers. Find where they belong and sell to first that are in touch with them.
You might have to contact 100s of companies before someone picks up on your product. Who needs an amateur movie anyway? Christ, can you people draw up a business plan before creating a start up.
