Marketing a Short Film

But my basic strategy for generating buzz is to go online to short film forums and see whats up. I also will walk around college campuses and message boards and post mini flyers of the shorts to generate some buzz. Other than that I have no idea. But that never stopped anyone that was determined to do anything. So until next time this is Movie Talk See signing out.
