About This Show
Welcome to the Film Trooper Podcast — Focusing on you, the über independent filmmaker. Filmmaking freedom means optimizing a new business model for making and selling your film online without being dependent on the traditional gate keepers. Why is this important? Because film production is no longer a barrier … anyone can make a film. Film distribution is no longer a barrier … anyone can sell their film directly to the world. The last barrier is film sales and marketing — Film Trooper explores strategies used by successful online entrepreneurs and looks to apply those methods to the world of the über independent filmmaker. Becoming a successful filmmaking entrepreneur (aka) FILM TROOPER is one of the keys at achieving that freedom we all crave.
