I have posted the 4th installment in my look at the history of the US box office over the last 15 years. This one looks at the percentage of the box office available to Indie distributors, while describing the size of the elephant in the room.

I have posted the third in a series looking at box office performance, based on the concept of Box Office Panic! In this one, I branch out to looking at what part the number of screens and sales per screen have in showing us what has been going on.

Friends,
You should check out this campaign to help stop human trafficking.

This is from the folks who made SOLD, an important film about this
subject on which we worked.

China's population & fast-moving economy causes studio execs & others' eyes to blow up like saucers, but for indies to salivate over this market is akin to pipe-dreaming. China's economy is important, but it & its cultural products like films, books & the internet are tightly controlled. The result is a limited number of small films get in, & the ones that do don't really get access to the market. Though I am a bit of a contrarian on piracy, poking your underpaid content into China is like inviting piracy. Unless you have a solid partner in China that enable you to do a sponsored co-production, right now, for most small films, I think it is not much worth it. http://buff.ly/1GBnFs9

How high can crowdsourcing be pushed? Crowdsourcing seems natural for high-interest products, useful items by creative entrepreneurs, small creative projects, and now for movies by mid-level stars who don't want to use their own money, and want consumers and fans to fund a couple million $$$ to deliver a product they can't get the studios to invest in. Kind of like the concept of "pre-sold" tickets. When we push this to higher multi-million products, it seems like we will hit a threshold where it comes down to just an advance ticket machine. What is the limit? Or, is it so, as spoken of PT Barnum, the great showman, "There's a sucker born every minute."
