Selling DVDs Without Risk

“Pick up a camera. Shoot something. No matter how small, no matter how cheesy, no matter whether your friends and your sister star in it. Put your name on it as a director. Now you’re a director. Everything after that you’re just negotiating your budget and your fee.” – James Cameron

You can produce and sell DVDs without risk. Here’s how: our CINEMAflix DISTRIBUTION Program manufactures DVDs on an on-demand basis, sometimes called “Burn-on-Demand.” As an order comes in, DVDs are made and shipped directly, the same day. No inventory to keep. No cash to tie up. No waste. No risk.

DVDs are “retail-packaged” with full-color wraps and disc graphics, housed in an industry-standard retail case, and CSS copy protected using studio-approved technology. There are no minimum-order requirements. Again, no risk.

But making DVDs on-demand is only part of the story. Selling DVDs is the big job. Our CINEMAflix DISTRIBUTION Program transmits metadata, images, pricing, and sell sheets to 120 online and in-store retailers and 14 wholesalers (that sell to an additional 600 retailers and 80,000+ libraries, colleges, and universities).

Filmmakers can expect a royalty of approximately 35% on each sale.

DVD sales may be down, but they are still a billion-dollar business. So, pursue it. After all, it’s part of our package.

Our best,
