Jerome CourshonProducer & distribution specialist Jerome Courshon will talk about concrete, specific and proven strategies to achieve distribution for your film. Jerome's first movie was the critically acclaimed indie God, Sex & Apple Pie, released by Warner Bros. After acquiring enormous experience & knowledge from playing "the game" of getting distribution for his own movie, he began assisting his colleagues on their movies -- with some of them achieving distribution in as little as 4 months by applying his information. The simple truth is this: While the so-called 3rd battle of moviemaking is getting distribution -- generally considered the hardest battle to wage -- it is not as difficult when you really know what to do. After the persistent urging of colleagues to share this closely-held industry knowledge with other producers & directors, "THE SECRETS TO DISTRIBUTION: Get Your Movie Distributed Now!" was born. Jerome initially began presenting a very short version of this class with the Learning Annex in Los Angeles, October 2006. Three months later, by January 2007, it had become a comprehensive 1-Day event to cover all the necessary material to truly achieve distribution. In 2009, it expanded once more to a 2-Day event, to cover traditional distribution and DIY in even further depth, as well as the emerging & developing non-traditional options for filmmakers. Jerome has written primers and articles on distribution for MovieMaker Magazine, Indie Slate Magazine, Film Festival Today and other film publications. You can view some of his latest articles here. On the creative front, Jerome recently produced a pilot for a television series and is currently in development on his next movie.
