Hi, I’m Derek. I’m a tech entrepreneur who’s long had an interest in the business side of filmmaking. Recently I came to the realization that filmmakers are entrepreneurs.

This blog is my attempt to learn more about the extra-creative aspects of the movie biz. Here we cover topics like:

  • Pitching your story to investors
  • Budgeting
  • Distribution
  • Creative support like casting, special effects and location selection

The initial focus is on interviews with people in the business. Do you have a project that you want to feature? Send me an email at me @ derekscruggs.com.

PS Though the blog has flix in the title, I’m also interested in TV, documentaries and online media, so don’t hesitate to contact me if your project falls into those categories, or any other you think might be relevant.
