In a previous post, we mentioned the work of an MBA student who is researching independent film marketing and distribution.  Here is a graphic he created that encapsulates the challenges faced by independent filmmakers.  Or does it?  What do you think; where do you agree or disagree with it?  How have you, or others you know in independent film, managed to overcome these barriers?  (Click on the image for improved readability)

From Craig Puller's dissertation-in-progress, "Economic Recession Gives Rise to Social Networking in Independent Film Marketing and Distribution"

Feel free to comment below, or send a note to Craig directly:
