How to Make Money from Your Short Films & MARCELL award

I was at the event she mentions in her blog. Actually two panels hosted by Seattle’s chapter of Women in Film. One on Film Financing and the other on Film Distribution. I filmed an interview with Scilla Andreen from Indieflix a few weeks back. I find the whole idea of making money very interesting. Especially for making films which are art.

Other good news. Me and Wenda Zonnefeld share a silver medal for our collaboration on “Marcell” from the Park City Film Music Festival. Here is the posting:

Kellie Ann Benz looks at how to make money from your short films – Industry Centre – National Screen Institute – Canada’s national training school for writers, directors and producers in film, television and digital media..

I need to learn how to use Kellie’s good advice now that I am an award winning filmmaker for Marcell! I am currently wrestling with pulling my films from Youtube and Vimeo and selling them, or learning how to give them away more successfully. My music video Ending the Dhoom is about to release. I am in love with it. But it cost more to make then I was paid. I’ll find it hard to remain a full time working artist unless I can find a way to change that trend soon!

See “10 Million Colors” at the 509 Winery for June Fremont Art Walk

10 Million Colors: photographs from the 2009 & 2008 Fremont Solstice Parade will be seen at the month of June at the 509 Winery tasting room in Fremont. Look for me Friday June 3rd for Art Walk. The artist will be in attendance for the opening. The musical group The Jelly Rollers will be providing music to go along with the fine wine and art.
