Unfortunatley as my film is a low budget film it will not reach these high budget companies.
Donkey punch: distributors were optimum releasing and Film1
As my film is an indie film it will not reach these high expectations for distributors i will be focusing on distributors such as:
|Dimension films slasher Production.|
|Warp productions is a indie company|
Dimension films are a well known production / distributors for slasher films. They could be a possible distributor for me as they are a low budget company and a slasher company and my production is a slasher film.
This is warp productions they are a low indie company and started from nothing like i have. It is very important that i have looked at this for a possible distributor because they are an indie company which like wise i am.
|Film 4 well known indie distributor|
this is film 4 distributor they are very well known for distributing low budget films they have worked closely also with warp productions.I have looked at them as they help fund indie films such as warp films and many others.
