Producing : Have you been successful (or not) at the Film and TV Markets? by Heather Hale

Heather Hale

Have you been successful (or not) at the Film and TV Markets?

I'm writing a book for Focal Press and would love to interview any indie producers who are willing to share their experiences at any of the film or TV markets (AFM, NATPE, Cannes, Toronto, Berlin, MIPCOM, MIPTV, RealScreen, etc.). Also - if you have questions - even if you think they are naive or ignorant (you'd be amazed how much people don't understand about the markets) - so feel free to ask them. I'll do my best to answer (and include that info in the book as well!) Thanks Stage 32'er's! ;-)

Mark Sherman

My producing partner and I sold the rights to our first picture woldwide at AFM this year. Let me know if you have interest and we'll talk. Mark

Heather Hale

Yeah, Mark - that'd be great! My email is Heather@HeatherHale.com if you want to shoot me an email with three times/dates that'd work for you for a conference call, Skype or GoogleHangOut, I'll pick the one that works for me and send you the Focal Press Release. Thanks! Can't wait to chat with you about it! And GOOD LUCK! ;-)

Heather Hale

Thank you! And Congrats! Look forward to interviewing you next week! ;-)

Doug Nelson

Heather – I think you must define ‘successful’ first. I’m an old, retired writer/producer in the indie short film festival circuit now - I’m not driven by the money. I’m more interested in ‘paying it forward’ by inviting filmmaker wannabes to participate in the on-set moviemaking process and I promote them when and wherever I can. Sometimes it’s awfully dispiriting but I keep on keepin’ on. I’ve managed to produce a couple and I’ve got some scripts in production/post by some more established indie production companies.

Heather Hale

Sounds like you're doing great, Doug! ;-)

Doug Nelson

I do what I can...LOCALLY.

Heather Hale

Filmmaking, by its very nature, Doug ;-) is inevtiably local. Boots on the ground. Good for you! ;-)

Heather Hale

Congrats, Shaun! I'd love to hear about it if you're game to be interviewed. Was that at the TI Film FESTIVAL or MARKET? Either way, I'd be curious to hear your story and insights. My real world addy is Heather@HeatherHale.com if you want to reach out - I'lls end you the publisher's release and we can set up a Skype interview! ;-)
