Jason Brubaker has "Prepping Your Film For Distribution" in current edition of The Independent. It's all good advice and the equal attention paid to self-distribution demonstrates the reality-check that has finally seeped through the layers of denial most indie filmmakers have held on to for too long. I wonder why "getting pick up" is even looked at on even ground with the DIY approach. Let's face it, the odds are practically 1 in 400 that your film will be picked up by a major distributor. The time to start to prep for self-distribution is now, not later.
