(PENNSAUKEN, NJ - May 11th, 2005) Disc Makers, the nation's leading CD and DVD replicator for independent artists and filmmakers, has rolled out an exclusive offer for indie filmmakers - retail-ready DVD replication packages in quantities as small as 300 for just $990. Specifically designed for independent filmmakers, the package includes replicated DVDs (not duplicated DVD-Rs), full color covers, three-color on-disc printing, DVD cases, and poly wrap.
Disc Makers is the only indie-friendly manufacturer to offer DVD mastering, replication, cover printing, and packaging in-house. That allows them to offer replicated DVDs in quantities of 300, which independent filmmakers need. Filmmakers releasing their first film typically do not need 1,000 DVDs (a common minimum replication order), but they do want replicated, retail-ready discs to send to film festivals and distributors, and to sell to customers.
"Today, an indie filmmaker needs a professional-looking DVD in order to get noticed," explains Tony van Veen, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Disc Makers. "We offer filmmakers a retail-ready product at a true breakthrough price of 300 for just $990. This makes producing and releasing a DVD affordable to almost anyone with a camera. And the DVDs look as good - or better - than anything you see on a store shelf. It's a true paradigm shift for filmmakers, and we believe it will revolutionize independent filmmaking in the U.S."
In addition to offering professional DVDs for an unbeatable price, Disc Makers helps filmmakers sell their own DVDs directly to fans of independent film through its partnership with Film Baby. Every Disc Makers customer gets free worldwide online DVD sales on www.filmbaby.com, as well as a free UPC bar code, a free countertop display (for festivals and retail locations), a free copy of Disc Makers' Ultimate Guide to Releasing Your Film on DVD. And for further promotion, the company offers filmmakers 300 full-color 11"x17" posters for just $99 with their DVD order - great for displaying in stores.
