Tickets, tickets, tickets. Everybody wants them. Sales agents want them for buyers. Publicists want them for press. Filmmakers want them for cast and crew. And, you, the producer want them for everyone. So you're stuck in the middle trying to figure out how to get them all with little to no budget. Don't fret though. You'll make it work. That's why you're a producer. You know how to solve problems. You've just solved the one involves taking an idea and making a film out of it. Squeezing an extra fifteen people into a sold out screening should be a cakewalk. Remember, producing doesn't end when the film's done nor when the film's premiered. Hell, it doesn't end three years after signing a distribution deal. Producing a film means taking on the responsibility for that film for it's life. You're in for the long haul. Enjoy the ride. It's gonna be a fun one.
