Helping You Get Your Movie To The Right Audience

Personalized strategies to help you get your movie released


Hey, Filmmakers.

So you’ve made a movie and you can’t wait to share it with audiences. But you don’t know how to get it out there. Sometimes uploading it on Vimeo or YouTube and hitting just a few festivals simply isn’t enough.

Trying to navigate the film distribution landscape can seem scary and mysterious. But you can have someone who has done it before on your team.

This is where I come in.

My name is Evelyn Lee, and I’m a filmmaker with nearly a decade’s worth of experience under my belt. I’ve worked on projects of various scales in both English and Chinese. I know how to make movies on a shoestring budget with a skeleton crew, and I’ve taken them to festivals worldwide. In 2016, I successfully self-distributed a film into a movie theatre — it went on to qualify for Oscar® consideration. I also have experience dealing with contracts, copyrights and trademarks, budgets and scheduling.

I’m here to help you with 1 on 1 consulting and work with you to figure out the best distribution strategy for your project. I will give you straightforward, no-nonsense, and clear advice on how to tackle your obstacles head-on by sharing my filmmaking experiences, trials and tribulations, and tips. I can also provide help from working through a specific issue, walking through the steps of a particular process, to even guiding you throughout the entirety of your project as a consulting producer. We can tackle your next big project together.


How Does It Work?

You have the option of choosing Hourly Consultations for specific issues and questions pertaining to your project, or to apply for a Project-Based Consultation to devise a strategic distribution plan for the project (you may apply at any stage of production).
