There are so many great movies coming out this fall!
One I am looking forward to seeing is The Martian. There are many lessons authors can learn from the movies and how a movie comes to the silver screen.
1. Self-publishing can lead one to the movies. Author Andy Weir self-published The Martian and posted it on Amazon for .99 cents. To gained a following and by word of mouth it was sold to Hollywood.
2. Peanutize-The Peanuts movie is coming out in November and I was not interested. I do now know why Hollywood has to keep remaking movies. However, last week the studio came out with an app to Peanutize yourself. This was a genius marketing tool. I did it. Everyone in my office did it.
What can we learn. Try something different and brand it. You never know who will be watching.
3. Bond-The next James Bond movie hits the market in November. They constantly have news stories about their stunts, who would make a good Bond and any controversy is good for the movie.
At the end of the day, remember that as an author you have a product to sell. You need to educated the audience about that product and think of creative tactics to get anyone interested.
Have a great weekend.
