Filmmakers around the world dream of signing a lucrative deal for their film. A great premiere. Early morning negotiations with distributors fighting over their film. And before the sun has barely peaked over the horizon, a deal is in place. 

Is a million dollar deal really all that lucrative? Where is the money going? Peter of the Sonnyboo Podcast breaks it down. A must watch for those getting into the business, planning their festival strategy, or developing their distribution plan.

P.S. Yes, we know "The Blair Witch Project" made gobs of money. That's why it's the perfect example. The filmmakers hit the jackpot. It was a once in a lifetime event.
