About the Book:

When it comes to selling and marketing movies, no one speaks with more authority than Lloyd Kaufman, founder of the longest-running independent film studio, Troma Entertainment. This is the 3rd volume in his hilarious, how-to series for hard-working self-starters and hard-laughing, cheeky filmmakers.

Sell Your Own Damn Movie covers everything you need to do to get your finished film seen by festival-goers, movie-goers, DVD-buyers and web-goers around the world. You will be lead through a primer on the history of film distribution to a discussion of the many ways you can get your film out there, either through a reputable distributor or all on your own. From the realities of distribution, to utilizing the internet to self-distribution, Lloyd Kaufman tells you in his habitually lucid and off-the-wall way.

Sell Your Own Damn Movie features expert advice from veteran distribution pros as well as directors and producers who have successfully sold their films:

   • David Cronenberg (Director of The Fly, Crash, A History of Violence)
   • Oren Peli (Director/Producer of Paranormal Activity)
   • Ted Hope (Producer of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, In the Bedroom, Happiness)
   • Brad Kembel (Executive Vice President of International Distribution at Summit Films; Twilight)
   • James Gunn (Writer/Director of Super, Dawn of the Dead, Slither)
   • Jonathan Wolf (Executive Vice President, Independent Film and Television Alliance and Managing Director, American Film Market)
   • and many more who have sold their own damn movies!

Lloyd Kaufman recounts his own raucous stories of marketing pleasures and nightmares from 35 years of movie-making experience, creating a uniquely useful and entertaining read.
