Our Distribution Model
Thunderbird Pictures is Different
Thunderbird Pictures is a production and distribution company founded by a team of film industry veterans. Our executives have vast experience in distribution, producing, directing, writing, and acting, along with the critical knowledge of how the industry works. Our mindset is unique. Our goal is simple. The independent filmmaker comes first; better terms, transparency, collaboration, and most importantly, integrity.
Marketing and Release Strategy
The Thunderbird Pictures marketing and release strategy is distinctive. We collaborate with the independent filmmaker every step of the way; from the trailer, key art, and marketing campaign, to the release of the film.
Capped Verifiable Expenses
All expenses will be capped at a mutually agreed upon amount. These expenses will be actual out of pocket costs required to take your film to market. We don’t charge any overhead, and if the need arises to exceed the expense cap, Thunderbird Pictures will notify the filmmaker of the nature of the expenditure.
The Thunderbird Pictures cash flow model is different. From the first quarterly report to the last quarterly report during the term, revenue will flow directly to a dedicated CAMA account, providing full disclosure of earnings and precise direction to pay, based on the mutually agreed upon distribution agreement. When money is due to the filmmaker, the independent 3rd party CAMA account promptly makes the payment.
