Last summer I signed on to produce a movie called Layover, an indie film I saw at the Seattle International Film Festival. I had a number of reasons for wanting to work on the film, but one of them was to learn the ins-and-outs of self-distribution, which is something that I felt was (and still is) a possible outcome for my own film, The Primary Instinct.

When Layover was self-released, we received placement in many high-profile online outlets (as well as a nice mention on the /Filmcast). The filmmakers, actors, and myself promoted the film heavily across social media. Combine all this with an asking price of $6 for a full HD digital download, and we had every reason to expect that the film would have a profitable run, especially given that the film’s budget was only $6,000. Were we right? How much money do you think our film made?

Now that some time has passed, we’ve had the opportunity to take stock and re-evaluate the effectiveness of our release strategy. After the jump, I will detail the plan we executed and tell you exactly how much revenue the film has earned.

Danae

Fifty Shades of Grey wasn’t a great film, but I do vividly remember watching its very first trailer, which stunned me with its remix of Beyonce’s “Crazy In Love.” That song had been transformed from a grating club song into something that was far darker and more sinister that perfectly fit the tone of the film. It was incredible.

I decided to try tackling a version of that song using a single looping cello (as I have done previously with other movie soundtracks). But in order to spice things up, I worked with a local pole instructor, Danaë Montreuil, who performed an interpretive pole dance set to my music. We got together and filmed a short music video Divine Movement, a pole dancing studio in Seattle.

See the mildly NSFW video after the jump.
