Helped sell my film

This book is so great! I got a copy after reading a review and it lived up to every claim. The techniques in the book's "Self-Distribution" section showed me how to set up regional sales for a film that otherwise has not made any money up until this point! I can now proudly say that my DVD is available in 17 video stores in Pennslyvania and New York thanks to the tips in this book! Get Bosko's book if you want to sell your film - it is that simple.

Must-Have Movie Marketing Magic

A lot of people throw the title "guru" around, but Bosko's the real deal. As a filmmaker, if you've ever wondered how to: get press coverage, create a media kit, find an attractive title; identify your movie's hooks, locate distributors, exploit the power of the web, get audiences and distribution and actually sell your movie or video...then GET THIS BOOK! Bosko "tells all" in an easy-to-read style that gets the creative juices flowing. No filmmaker should go anywhere near a camera without reading the hard-core, straight-up instruction and advice in this book.

An Absolute MUST!

Outstanding! Mark's style of writing is so engaging, down-to-earth, and motivating --I couldn't pull myself away! I've been behind the scenes on several film projects and can't believe they had the audacity to shoot without knowing what Mark shares in this book. My highlighter is nearly empty! When it comes to marketing a project, ignorance is certainly not bliss! Mark's book is an absolute MUST HAVE if you plan to DO something with your film other than show your parents!

Film biz school in a book

I couldn't believe the amount of information in this great new book. Bosko covers absolutely every angle of independent film distribution, from finding your movie's hook, to creating a presentation package, to researching and contacting the correct distributors, making a deal, and maybe, most importantly, what to do when all that fails (self distribution). Bosko never shys away from telling of his own misfortunes in this trade, and it helps the reader relate and learn as they go. Plus a huge appendix and offer from Bosko to email him direct anytime - what a great resource!

The Title is Perfect-- It Says It All...

Carefully, attentively, w o r d b y w o r d, read the title of Mark Bosco's "The Complete Independent Movie Marketing Handbook- Promote, Distribute, and Sell Your Film or Video". It says it all. Trust me: trust it. Implement even a few of the suggestions in Bosco's book, and you'll save ten times, maybe a hundred times what the book cost you, and give your film a fighting chance to prosper. 'Wish I'd had this earlier.
