Continuing where we left off with the series, after several months on the film festival circuit, and working to attract the right distributor to the film, the series returns, with a trifecta of very informative posts on deliverables (a very involved part of the distribution process that many of you filmmakers will probably have to deal with at some point), spread out over the next 2 weeks (starting with this one), leading up to the film's officially theatrical opening on Friday, October 26th, in Los Angeles, at the Rave Theaters in the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw plaza.
