"Distribution In An Ever Evolving Landscape" with CEO Jere Rae-Mansfield (8/27/2008)

Click HERE to hear this interview

One of the most frequently asked questions that fellow filmmakers always ask (and one I get frequent emails about) is “what are the best ways to get my film out there? How do I get it seen by people?” The answer brings us to the topic of distribution, which is an ever evolving landscape in the digital age.

In this program, you will hear some very insightful answers from one very innovative and visionary company, Monterey Media, Incorporated, who for nearly 30 years, has been actively engaged in all areas of domestic media, including theatrical distribution to theaters and film festivals, and creates distinctive release strategies tailored to each project.

My guest, Jere Rae-Mansfield, serves in multiple capacities as Chief Financial Officer and Managing Partner, as well as overseeing Monterey’s Creative Departments. Monterey is also the second oldest independent video manufacturer in the industry specializing in unique entertainment such as Multi-Platinum RIAA and ITA Award-winning Grateful Dead concerts, celebrated sports programming including the Bruce Brown Films franchise of motorcycle (On Any Sunday) and surf (The Endless Summer II) films, as well a prestigious library of films adapted from literature’s best from PBS and the American Film Institute.

Over the past year, I have had the pleasure of featuring interviews for three of their visionary entertainment releases, most recently “Whaledreamers”, along with “10 Questions for the Dalai Lama” and “Eye of the Dolphin”.

Listen in and you will hear the story behind what has made Monterey Media so successful, what qualities in a motion picture a leading edge film distributor is watching for, and where the film industry might be headed towards in the future.
