Not All Producer Reps are Created Equal!

A Producer Rep can become attached to a film at any stage in the project, from development, during production, or simply at the distribution phase. For filmmakers, the best Producer Rep is someone who feels just as strongly about the film as they do.

So what is a Producer Rep? The person with the connections…connections with the major festivals, connections with the major distribution companies…the person who can make the deal.

The problem is…are they telling you the truth? Do they actually have these connections with people in high places? Or do they just want a large (non-refundable) chunk of money up front, without caring whether the film is sold or not?

We are currently fielding calls from Producer Reps for Mad City Chickens. And it has been a very interesting stroll into the art business of filmmaking.
