Episode14_PhotoMaking a website for your film may seem like a no-brainer, but did you think you might want to create it during the development phase of making your film? It may seem too early, but it’s important to know that it’s never too early start promoting your film. Promotion doesn’t just include a website, but it also includes branding your film and making your film’s poster as well.


Episode Fourteen Guests

Andrew Robinson


Unlike most filmmakers, Andrew Robinson never set out to become one. At the age of 13, Andrew and his family relocated to Littleton, Colorado where he would eventually attend Columbine High School. During his time at Columbine, Robinson fell into the dramatic arts and became a staple in school as well as local and statewide productions. However, the morning of April 20th 1999 changed all of that. April Showers marks Robinson’s second feature length effort. Robinson and Edwards have recently begun work on their second feature film collaboration, an adaptation of Dancing Carl based on the novel by three-time Newbery Honor author Gary Paulsen.

    Cindy Freeman, Andrew Robinson, Jenna Edwards & Frankie Carranza,

    Thanks so much for your Film Method episode regarding promoting your indie film. I recall at the Omaha Film Festival premiere for ,”April Showers”, at the Omaha Community Playhouse Theatre, getting up in front of the audience to laud Andrew and his cast for the wonderful job all had done on the movie. Just important, and I didn’t realize it at the time, was the recognition for the excellent work Andrew had done with the website. Cindy was on the side filming the event and Jenna was on stage with Andrew and several actors. Looking back I didn’t have a clue just how amazing the site really would continue to be. I knew it was something quite extraordinary at the onset. I’ve said before and still believe there is a movie or documentary to be made just on Andrew’s story of development of the film start to finish. I also think Cindy could do the same same with her Film Method Podcast. Wonderful the spirit of all you Indie artists. I thoroughly enjoy every bit of it. It’s quality at it’s best. Behind me now as I am typing this I have my April Showers Poster and also the background on my desktop. I would like to get some business cards from Frankie accept I don’t really have a business. Maybe I could get one or two and maybe a signature poster which I would purchase.

    Great work everyone
