HOW TO MAKE A GREAT FILM ON $1.75 MILLION

by root

"Comedies Never Win Oscars..." But a great indie film can be made on a slim $1.75 million budget WITH an A-List Star and still make it big at the box office... with the right game plan. Or, as in the case of "Hello, My Name Is Doris," starring Sally Field, with no initial plan at all. Read how Jordana Mollick, the film's producer, road an initial wave of failure after being rejected by Sundance  only to be accepted at South By SouthWest® (SXSW®), which is where the seeds for success began, including a bidding war for distribution, and the right moment to open at the box office.
