Do you want to make a movie and change the world?
If only it was that easy. To say deep systemic change needs to happen on all fronts is an understatement. How does Hollywood fit into this though? Let us explain. The content that comes into our homes shapes the world around us. It dictates trends and sets up stereotypes. That trickles down into how we feel about ourselves, how we feel about each other and how we feel about the community around us.
By mobilizing people to pick what they want to see and choose strong character driven stories, we aim to contend with the bigger budget studio films at a fraction of the budget while driving value and built-in awareness for FRESH KILLS and our mission.
Philosophy of the company
To tell stories that represent all of us, not just a chosen few. How does one movie change anything, let alone the world? By changing the content that we see. There are a select few in the industry that decide on content and who makes it. This is the content that comes into our homes, continues to stereotype people, dictates trends and paints a one-sided lens of our world. This is the content that shapes our culture.
Obtaining a “distribution deal” is a primary business objective. In this type of distribution arrangement, the independent producer raises production monies from investors, but funds are not used to market and distribute the movie. The distribution agreement is usually entered into after the film is produced (i.e., the film is already “in the can”). This approach to film finance and distribution generally provides the producer and creative team with the most creative control and greater negotiating power with distributors.
Potential Avenues for licensing the rights:
- Theatrical Distribution
- Foreign Distribution
- DVD sales and rental
- Digital distribution
- Television broadcasts (cable, free TV)
- Other ancillary markets (including licensing and merchandising, etc.)
Home/Mobile viewing market
The global home/mobile entertainment market (content released digitally and on disc) reached $68.8 billion in 2020, a 23 percent increase compared to 2019, driven by digital.
The global total of online video subscriptions (1.1 billion), such as Netflix and Disney+, increased by 26 percent, or 232.1 million, when comparing 2020 to 2019.
Independent film market
While exact figures for most of the world’s markets are extremely vague on the market share won by independent films, various publications in the US estimate that in the country’s domestic market, independents make up 10-13% of box office revenues (Source: Consultancy.uk). In this case, it could be estimated that in 2019 the box office intake of independent films was around $4.8 billion.
