So for getting enough returns, you have to aware about the marketing tips and tricks. As you also aware of a fact that, many filmmakers of now days have their own film production houses and how many of them succeeds? Literarily, only a few can survive in this field. The Reasons are many; in some cases the reason of failure is because of the lack of quality content, but some other times it’s all because lack of good clients.

Here, we hope that this article gives you the best explanation for starting your own film production house. Meanwhile, if you had any doubts concerned to this topic, please ask us through the comment section shown below.

The Five BIG Tips

#1 Right Team

The first and foremost thing is, finding a right business partner. Whether it is he/she, make sure that, the person that you select is best for making your business to a next level.  Ask frankly about their past work experience, the maximum amount of money they can invest, etc. Recently in Kerala (Southern State of India), three filmmakers Shabu Anthikad, Shibu Anthikad and Deepu Anthikad joined for starting an Ad film Production House. At First, they start with the Animation Production, latter, Ad films became their forte. Apart Kerala, the company recently started another production office at Mumbai. The triumph of their venture was happened because of the smart Business Partners.

#2 Finding Fund $

Now, the second crucial thing is money: How much money should I invest to start my own film Production house? And, from where I can find that money? Now days, all the indie-filmmakers on the globe, might be familiar the word ‘CrowdFunding’ there are many films are producing on now days through the ‘Crowdfunding’ method. But, that method of finding a fund is not effective for starting a Film Production House, why because it takes some uncertain periods for collecting the required funds, also the donors will ask you numerous questions (most are unethical) that might sometimes lose your confidence in starting your own venture. Then, how to find funds?

#3Funding Sources

The Government and the local bodies on now days encouraging the start-up business, where they provide funds on 0% interest Basis. You can get more details from your nearest Government Administrative Offices.

#4 Finding Clients

Usually, the Ad film companies, getting the contract through Advertising Agencies: therefore we suggest you, to collaborate with a good Advertising Agency nearby your area. Another method of getting the clients is though the internet marketing Source. For an instance, if someone searching in the internet with a keyword ‘Best film Production Companies in India’ and your company’s website is listed among the first ten search results, certainly they will contact you. You can also list your business enquiry phone numbers on various film related online forums and directories, that is also a relevant source for getting calls. Finally, you can also expect client requests through your YouTube Videos. For that, we suggest to add your primary email address in business Enquiry tab.

#5 Equipments and Crew

Preferably for a startup, it’s better to hire equipments than buying.  Almost all the DSLR cameras, Lenses, Set light, sound recording equipments, are available for lease for cheap price. The usual rental cost of Canon 5D is $12 USD/day, based on the budget you can hire cameras. Finally, choose an Impactful name for your business; it is a very important thing. There are some tricks for choosing a right name; the first thing is name availability, make a simple search in Google, if the same name exists anyhow, you can find it on the first page Google’s search results, if not, then go forward with the name. Also, make sure that the business name that you selected is available in .com domain name. The .com domain name is the trademark of every business, the godady’s domain search tool help you to availability of domains in .com.

    First, thanks for your support and help.

    I am from Rajasthan. I want to register a firm as a production house in the beginning, don’t want to open a company. as you know because of budget. so my questions are

    Question 1. Can I open a sole proprietorship firm as a production house?
    Question 2. What should be the nature of business?

    As far as I know there is two division in firm registration.
    1. product/ manufacture/ sales business – for which we get TIN no. and taxes like vat, sales tax, etc.
    2. service based business – where we get service tax and all that.

    Now the confusion is

    if I work as a ad production house, I provide service to client so my business is service based. but when I make a film, which will be consider as a product, which I want to sale by the help of distributor or YouTube. so my business comes in first criteria.

    Question 1. when I go for registration what nature should choose ?
    Question 2. what kinds of taxes we get on films? Specially entertainment tax. can you plz explain this procedure and afterwards legal issues in details.
