For years independent artists have had to rely on gatekeepers to give them their shot at having their voices heard. But finally the old gatekeeper system is coming down. Book publishers no longer have the kind of power they used to have and record companies are giving way to independent artists who can bypass the old system and take their music straight to the customer. TV is breaking into many different niches, and film distribution is no longer just for the major studios.
So, distribution has become more accessible, but the one thing that’s missing is the money. That’s where Indie Sponsor comes in.
I created Indie Sponsor as a former TV/film distributor who was tired of seeing really talented artists who would never getting a shot because they didn’t have the contacts in the industry. But now things have changed. Artists no longer have to go through the regular channels to get their work out there. The old TV and film distribution model is giving way to whole Internet networks where an up and coming artist can launch their own TV show or film without begging for distribution from a gatekeeper.
Also, regular TV and film marketing has become too costly for the small business owner. A 30 second spot on a national morning TV show goes for $16,000. But a small business owner can sponsor a whole Internet TV show for much less. Indie Sponsor’s goal is to bring the indie artist together with the small and large business community to provide funding for their projects. Indie artists’ voices need to be heard and talented artists will finally get their chance.
There has never been a better, more exciting time to be an artist as we enter a new Renaissance. And Indie Sponsor wants to start the conversation. We can’t wait to see what you have to bring to the table.
