UNDERSTOOD: You've finally finished your 35mm film. We won't even talk about that adventure. All your credit cards are maxed, you owe money to everyone: family, friends, acquaintances, even some strangersnow referred to as partners. Basically, you're broke and desperate, let's be honest. Not only that, to make matters worseyou're emotionally attached to your film. Afterall, you poured your heart and soul into it. And for what? Ten cents and hour? You're luckyyou got paid. And, of course you've been through or you're about to enter into: the film festival scene. What's that? You even won a few awards? Congratulations! You're an independent Filmmaker. Welcome.
Abintra Records Filmworks was founded in 1983. Our primary focus was the production and distribution of music. Today, the opposite is true. Our passion is feature films. Sorry, no shorts. Don't get us wrong. We love them, we watch them, we've even made them. In fact, we were nominated for a "Golden Palm" for Best Short, CANNES 99'. But, we were just having a little fun. Bottom line: There's no dollars in it. They're great fun and a wonderful way to get your "chops" together. Do one if you mustthen move on to features. And, be straight with your investors. Make sure those who help with the expenses understand the impossibility of making millions on a short film. In fact, even recouping your expenses is extremely rare.
