Been thinking of support indie films and film makers or even donating to an indie film project? Here’s why it’s such a good idea.
Indie films no matter what genre have one thing in common- creative freedom. It’s important not to underestimate the importance of this within the film industry. Independent films are free from the restraints of big box office films which allows them to convey a stronger message and for the film makers to express themselves freely. This is a quality the film industry cannot afford to lose which would be the case if Indie film were to die out. If you feel strongly towards the creative arts there’s no better way to support the creative industry then by supporting indie films.
Because the market smaller for independent film you will feel a real sense of community attending exclusive film festivals or being one of a few who’s favourite film is one some people have never even heard of.
You can meet people that share your interests through indie film fan forums, film festivals or small theatre showings of popular indie films.
You also have the opportunity to engage with the indie film makers and production directly, through their social media etc and they are 100% more likely to respond than say Steven Spielberg.
Exclusive content and freebies
Many films will offer exclusive content for signing up to their mailing list and following their films. VM production for example offers monthly competitions, exclusive newsletter, and free ebooks just for signing up and engaging.
Independent filmmaking is much more personal experience than Hollywood film making.
Because the market for independent films is smaller and often without an A-list cast indie film makers depend on support from the public and indie film fans to make their film as successful as it can be. When indie film makers get this support they will often show their gratitude by offering rewards for donating which may even include getting your name in the credits or giving you the chance to spend a day on set.
Indie films will often offer rewards for donating which will usually be slightly different for each film production.
These rewards are often once in a lifetime opportunities and are perfect for film fans or anybody who wants to get involved in the film industry.
See what VM productions offers here which includes the chance to be credit as an executive producer, a VIP studio tour and even the chance to star as an extra in one of their films. This is something that never happens with a big block buster.

Sometimes indie films make it big
It surprising how many indie films have become a blockbuster hit and even spawned a franchise .
For example all of the above films (and many, many others!..) – including Paranormal Activity, The Evil Dead, The Blair Witch Project, Juno and Night of the Living Dead were all indie films that gained huge popularity in Hollywood and raked in millions.
Imagine having your name connected to a film like that, although rare there’s always the possibility of it happening.
