2015 Film Industry Survey Report

What This Is.

While developing our curriculum, we found that there is a lot of information out there that is not available for the industry. Being entrepreneurial and inquisitive ourselves, we decided to go out and gather that data. That’s why we’ve partnered with Stage32, Fandor, and others to create what we expect to be a very insightful report. By making this data more publicly available, we hope to reveal some of the mysteries that keep the power in the hands of major players, and to help create new services and companies that will enable filmmakers to run more effective productions and companies.

It’s Quick.

By taking 10-12 minutes to fill out this survey, you help to unravel the mysteries of the film industry. And thanks to our generous partners at Fandor, you won’t be doing it for free. After you complete the survey, you will receive a complimentary three month subscription to Fandor. That’s a $30 value for only about 10 minutes of your time.

We Won’t Abuse Your Trust.

You will be asked some fairly sensitive information, including income levels, demographic information, number of projects you’ve worked on, as well as other things you might hesitate to answer. The information you give is:

  • anonymously aggregated
  • for research purposes only
  • you will not be contacted about other products or services based on data you provide.

It is important that you be as candid as possible in responding to this survey, because the data we collect will create accurate statistics to enable us to better understand the industry. If these data are more publicly available, then we can level the playing field and give independent filmmakers a fighting chance at creating sustainable companies.
