This unique survival guide is designed to help über-independent filmmakers navigate the terrain of direct digital distribution. It will show them how to really sell a product online.

There are a lot of books on how to make a movie and how to be part of the Hollywood machine, but this step-by-step guide will show you how to bypass all of that. You'll learn how get to the heart of making and selling digital products (your film) directly to an audience online and build a sustainable business from it.

A humble but thorough guide to the subject

This book more than met my expectations.

I got a free audio copy, as well as a free e-book version (all formats), but I still paid for this audible version.

Yes, it's that good!

I have also paid Scott individually for his time as a consultant. He's upfront in that he says "I don't know everything", yet what he does know and when he shares with us is really Gold if we I choose to use it.

He reads this very well, and I say that as a true are you look at it. It's an engaging and interesting performance and content.

If you are interested in independent filmmaking and/or entrepreneurship, this book is highly recommended. Very highly. I give it my highest recommendation possible.

I am already on my second listening on this one – very rare for me and I just gotten a book. Even when a book has a lot of relistenability, for me, I usually get it at least a few weeks if not months before the next listening. For this one I'm going to listen to it at least twice all the way through within the first 24 hours.

And again: yes it is that good!

Motivational but not much information

He seems like a pleasant guy. Nice voice. Positive attitude.
And it’s true that there are opportunities to make and market an micro low budget film outside the studio system. But where is the I formation.
It’s like listening to a high school cheerleaders sing “you can do it. You can do it. You can do, do,
Do it. “
Pleasant. But where’s the content.
Qualification: I only listened to the first two chapters. Maybe there’s more as it goes on. But how long do we have to wait?
