Quick Post-Cannes Update

May 30, 2009

I’m going to have Jamie Thompson from Quantum Releasing do a guest blog next week to describe in some detail the recent Cannes film festival and market and buyer reaction to Beneath the Blue, which was sneak previewed there via a 20 minute extended promotional reel. The short version is that Jamie and the sales team came back quite excited over the reception to Beneath the Blue, and even though the intent was just to promo the film, and not pre-sell it — Quantum did end up taking a few deals in key territories where the amount offered was more than double what has been offered for any of the other movies carried by Quantum. I will leave the additional details to Jamie — in the meantime, for me it’s back to editing and completing the film.
