About ITGD Summit:

Indies That Get Distribution is a summit about what you need to do and know to ensure your project gets maximum potential for national distribution.

There are millions of filmmakers with dreams of becoming accomplished and having accredited work. Sure the key is to start small and have the “Just Shoot It” approach then go on to film festivals if they’re so lucky as to get officially selected. However, many filmmakers are not sure what to do next to get to a level of recognition which is distribution.

At this summit Ebony J Lewis will discuss:

How to find a talented cast and crew on a budget.
What distributors look for in a film that you don’t know about.
Who gets paid and who doesn't.
Secrets of getting into the Writer Guild OF America (WGA).
Movie Trailers that get attention.
The evolution from Script to Short Film to Web series to Feature Film to distribution.
Importance of Movie Scores.
Creating harmony on your set that produces everyone’s best work.
Important movie must haves, Tips, and ‘The little things”.
Directing Writing and Producing Tips.
Special Panel Summit Discussion and Q&A Plus Networking social.
