Bunker 15 getting started with your film

  • Film
    • Link to Trailier
    • Link to film / password / (if necessary) Login
    • Link to Stills / photos
      • Stills photos should be in a google drive or dropbox or some other public folder that any critic can go to and download a still. If you need to grant permission to the folder, then it should be made “public”
      • Don’t send the stills in a zip file. Critics don’t want to receive a 50Mg email. Just the link.
      • Journalists typically request hi-res images. If the image isn’t at least 2Mg then it’s probably too low-resolution.
      • Behind the scenes images are usually not used by the journalists. they want stills from the movie itself. It’s ok to have scenes of the production in there, but I haven’t seen them used in the articles.
    • Synopsis (roughly a paragraph – longer than a logline)
    • Hi-res poster
    • A press release and other marketing material for film – including awards? Festivals? i.e. “Puff material” … Braggadocio. Why does a Critic want to watch your film?
    • Any press that is on a blacklist / Is there a do-not-contact list?
    • Embargo dates, if any? (meaning: are there dates before which you do NOT want the press published)
    • Is any talent from film available for interviews should a publication ask?
    • Date of Release (Optional, if film is not yet distributed)
    • Type of Release (Theatrical, SVOD, TVOD, DVD, etc)
    • Platforms (if TVOD or SVOD)
      • Preferably, your top 2-3 Watch-Now (or Buy-Now) Links. Do you want these on Rotten Tomatoes?
    • Geography of Release (US only, International, or Other combination?)
    • Are you able to ship physical DVD’s to critics that won’t review any other way?
    • Do you need a Rotten Tomatoes Page Setup or updated in some way?
