Distribution and Festivals
Please select one or multiple of the distribution packages below. Please note that distribution comes free with any Film Production package except Live-Capture.
Standard Distribution: Domestic and international release via the Ghostlight Studios YouTube channel, submission to worldwide film festivals, and IMDb recognition.
Pay-Per-View Distribution: Release through Vimeo OnDemand, for a flat price. Ghostlight Studios receives 10% of PPV profit. You receive 90% of PPV profit and all incurred fees.
Festival Submission: Ghostlight Studios will represent your project in film festivals internationally and domestically. In addition, you will receive IMDb recognition.
IMDb Recognition: An integral part to the validation of many movies, Ghostlight Studios is a registered studio on IMDb. Unfortunately, we cannot submit a film without meeting the IMDb "proof" requirements. This means that recognition of a film on its own is rare, so we recommend choosing the Standard Distribution or Festival Distribution packages.
Theatre & Live Events

Sound designers are all equipped and trained in QLabs audio software. Lighting designers are all familiar with newer versions of the ETC EOS Ion family of lighting console.
