Lab where materials are stored:
Is there anything else you believe we need to know about your film that might affect the distribution
BEFORE YOU READ THE NEXT SECTION…
If you receive this document…Congratulations! You’ve made it
in the world of filmmaking. Only films that are worthy of worldwide
distribution are at the stage of working on “full deliverable.” That’s
less than 5% of all films made.
But note – an undeliverable film is an un-distributable film
so please don’t take it lightly!
If you have never seen a “Schedule A” before, don’t panic. It’s
not as scary as you thought. It’s long because we think you would like
to know more specific details to help you with the technical process.
Detail is better than vagueness. Safe is better than sorry.
The list is the most updated standard requirements of
deliverable based on what distributors and broadcasters are
If there’s anything you are not cleared or would require further
explanation, feel free to contact us (info on page 1) and ask your
questions. We understand. Film schools don’t teach this. Welcome to
the 5-percenter club! After this, you’ll become the expert on
deliverable, I promise.
