From the inside, it’s not easy to get big on film.
But how can you make it happen?
In the past, that has meant making a film on a budget of less than $1 million, and then hoping to get a small piece of it to the big screen.
Now, with film festivals around the world, and the increasing use of crowdfunding, filmmakers can make films on a much more modest budget.
How can you do it?
First things first, you need to find the right platform for your film.
“We are trying to find an audience that likes to watch films on their computer, not on their phone, and can afford to pay $10 to $20 for the privilege,” says John Turturro, chief executive of the festival festival company, Turtu.
“So we have to look at how we are going to make that audience, and how we’re going to convince them to pay for the film.”
He points to the success of the Indie Film & Television Festival, the biggest and most prestigious festival in the US, which has attracted more than 100,000 people to the festival grounds each year.
“If you are doing a film that you can make for under $1,000 and it is a very low budget film, you can get a lot of support from the festival,” he says.
“You can ask people to donate, you could go to a festival in Australia and do an independent screening of your film, and get $1 from there.”
So, to start, find a film festival.
There are some that charge $100,000 for entry, and many of those require you to have a film of at least $500,000 in production to qualify for a ticket.
“But you need a film with enough money to be able to take a couple of people with you to the event, and to pay a few people who want to watch your film,” says Turtus.
“A lot of people go to festivals and they think they have to have something in the budget, and they can’t afford to make anything on their own.”
You can also use crowdfunding to get your film on screen.
“Crowdfunding is a great way to get people to see your film and to support you, so you don’t have to make the investment of going into production,” says Mr Turturturo.
“It allows people to support your film for a lower price.”
The crowdfunding platform Kickstarter is the most popular, but you can also take it to other platforms, including Indiegogo, IndiGo and Patreon.
“The platform is very flexible, and we’re always looking to make sure that it’s very easy for people to access,” says Ms Nye.
“People can make a film in under five minutes.
If you want to make films, and have the budget and the skills, you should be able take a short film to a big screen.” “
As an indie film producer, you don�t have to be a huge star.

A big question mark is how you are going with your film as an independent producer.
You can go to crowdfunding campaigns and use them as a stepping stone to a full production.
But, if you don, it might be a few months before you can even see your work in a screening.
“I have to say that I am very sceptical of crowdfunding.
I don’t think it’s the right way to go about things,” says Nye, but says it is an important way to fund your film because it allows filmmakers to get exposure and funding for their work.
“In order to be successful in crowdfunding, you have to find a way to reach an audience.
If you donít do it, then you will be on your own.” “
What’s the audience going to pay you?

The biggest question mark around crowdfunding is whether it is going to be good for your work.
For one, many crowdfunding campaigns are designed for big-budget films, such as The Hunger Games: Catching Fire or The Lego Movie.
“There is a lot that goes into the cost of a film, so if you can’t put your money into that, you are probably not going to get it,” says Rene DePaulo, co-founder of Indiegirls, a crowdfunding platform for independent films.
“Even if you make a good film and get a good response, the fact that it gets a little bit of exposure and a little exposure doesn’t necessarily mean that the audience is going be able see it.”
He says that for a project that is going viral, the crowdfunding model is ideal.
“Once it reaches a certain level of viral popularity, it is easy to see how that might work, but that
