Film Courage: Keith I understand you had distribution for THE MASON BROTHERS during production? Is that right?
Keith Sutliff: Right. We had a pre-sales deal with my distributor prior to…so I wrote the script in November of 2015 and then shortly afterward I had a pre-sales deal with my distributor. So before we started filming I had distribution already locked in. I was very fortunate.
Film Courage: So please tell us…because we have so many filmmakers trying to figure out how to get distribution. How did you even get the conversation started with distributors? Was this the first one that you talked to?
Keith Sutliff: You know people have asked me that before. So I think my distributor I met (from what I remember) because I go to the American Film Market which is an event that most people should go to if you’re in the industry. When you’re there it’s like a big madhouse of distributors and it’s multiple floors in Santa Monica at the Loews Hotel. I met so many distributors there and I stayed in contact with them by email. I think I was in touch with my distributor after that if I remember? So I think they reached out to me or I reached out to them months later and started talking and I told them I had this feature film…(Watch the video on Youtube here).
