TURN KEY DISTRIBUTION

Dauntless Studios offers many TKD (Turn Key Distribution) options to fit the distribution, marketing, and branding goals of any film while maintaining the fiscal boundaries of each. In essence, “TKD” or “Turn-Key Distribution” is a distribution option in which a filmmaker, producer and/or production company distributes their feature film on almost all revenue generating platforms in North America; using a hybrid of pre-set and negotiated terms that have been secured by Dauntless Studios. The “Turn-Key” aspect of the distribution involves that a tier fee is paid to access TKD platforms, cover all TKD marketing costs, servicing fees and consulting services. Our turn key system allows the creative team of each picture to focus on marketing and promoting the film’s release while being worry-free and confident of the film’s accessibility in the global marketplace. The following details the various aspects of TKD CORE and available tier add-ons:


TKD CORE


CORE is the baseline or “starting point” for all Turn-Key Distribution. TKD Core will release a film, on all non-theatrical rights, across North America (US & Canada).
