What a Film Distributor is looking for. Tip #6

Casting needs to be thorough and thought through.

  • This is definitely a part of filmmaking you cannot afford to get wrong.
  • It can be very frustrating but it is definitely worth the effort. 
  • Actors are supposed to breathe life into your characters.
  • Miscasting can really compromise your films success.

Sound is an important key

  • Poor sound is sometimes the biggest downfall of independent films.
  • You’d think the sound doesn’t play major roles in a movie but it does.
  • Some professionals claim that if the image is not great, this can be compensated by a great story line.
  • However poor sound is intolerable!
  • Sound recording should be taken extremely seriously if you want to keep an audience.

What a Film Distributor is looking for. Tip #3

Simply look through the camera and see the greatness.

  • There is brilliant camerawork and there is abysmal camera work. Make sure you are not the latter, it cripples your filmmaking from the get go.
  • Never over estimate good framing techniques.
  • It is proven that imaginative camerawork increases the connection between your brilliant story line and your engaging audience. However, if the camerawork is amateur, weak and unmotivated, your greatly structured and grafted story line is not portrayed as such.
  • Just make sure that your choices are motivated by the characters and the scene.

What a Film Distributor is looking for. Tip #2

See the light in the beginning.

  • Lighting your film correctly and effectively automatically affects the way an audience judges your movie.
  • For example; Moody lighting and dark shadows and a light hearted comedy would not be suited. The two do not compliment one another and changes the way the audience views it.the way you light your film significantly affects how your audience perceives it. 
  • A light hearted comedy would be best suited with bright colours and flat lighting.
  • Innovative and imaginative lighting is a deal maker in successful filmmaking.

"Serious films that have not been Box Office smashes deserve backing too!" 

British Film has been dominating the news recently. This article opposes those of the government who believe that they should only support those commercial films. Other films out there need to be recognised for their performance and their talented abilities. It is not fair to just side line those who have not been Box Office smashes for any reason. 

Denton supports those, so should Britain!

YES. YES. YES. BRITISH FILM SHOULD COMPETE WITH HOLLYWOOD! 

Denton Distribution support this! British films should be given the right and given all the necessities to compete with Hollywood films. We shouldn’t be giving Hollywood our films, Hollywood should be scared of our films.

In all this Hollywood is like the big tornado that sucks up everything and anything it wants. Someone needs to do something about this tornado and not let it just keep taking everything. British film have the foundation to become a fantastic industry. All we need is support and guidance.

If Four Hours was given the support from the government that it deserves, then Hollywood may have to watch out for the future of indie films which continues to rise.

Support British Film.

Making a Norwegian kid’s dream come true
-Andre Rettedal
Born in a Norwegian fishing village, Andre up and left everything he knew and everyone he loved to chase his dreams. Being raised in a fishing village, his life was simple and unspectacular. However, that was not enough for him, like many of us, he had dreams but unlike many of us, he took the risk and he went for it!
Growing up, Andre was constantly in front of the television very curious of how everything worked. Unfortunately he could not afford to ask his mum to take him to the cinema every weekend, but he was an avid follower of films that were broadcasted on standard television. At an early age he knew what he wanted to be: “I want to become a director!”
After begging his parents to invest in him, he booked his plane ticket and came to London with nothing more than his grandfather’s suitcase and his beloved script, which he had been working on since he was 15 years old. Although Andre only had £3000, he was determined to make his film! With hard graft and determination he found a team and he got it made. Andre achieved what most people find impossible - He completed his film in 6 days! 6 full days of filming and directing, 6 hard days of trying to communicate with everyone.
This is his baby! His brain child. He made the film 6 days with exactly £2700 and guess what? Against all odds, it sold at the Cannes Film Festival (2011).
Denton Distribution have made a Norwegian kid, who struggles to even speak English, a very ecstatic person and are now distributing the film worldwide. Who says you need £1million to make a film? Andre has proved all you need is £3000 and a lot of determination. Recently lauded as the “Norwegian Tarantino” by Norwegian Press, Andre’s future is bright!
