Be sure to check out Jon Reiss' guest post on Truly Free Film where he discusses the need for Producers of Marketing & Distribution.

My goal is that in five years time, whenever a filmmaker puts out a call for a PMD they will receive as many resumes for a PMD as for a DP or Editor or AD. Even if a film ends up with traditional distribution, the work of a PMD during prep, production and post is invaluable. If the film doesn’t obtain traditional distribution (or doesn’t want traditional distribution) a PMD (and a complete distribution and marketing crew) are vital.

An important adaptation that every filmmaker making a film independently should make.

    I’m very excited about the idea of becoming a PMD, and I’ve begun seriously considering exactly what responsibilites I’d likely be assuming in this new role:

    I’d greatly appreciate any feedback people can share in the comments section. Thanks!
