TURN-KEY DISTRIBUTION

Dauntless Studios offers many Turn-Key Distribution (TKD) options to fit the distribution, marketing, and branding goals of any film, while also maintaining the fiscal boundaries of each. At its core, “TKD” or Turn-Key Distribution, is a distribution option in which a filmmaker, producer or production company chooses to take the distribution of their film into their own hands and cut out the subjectivity of an acquisition agent. With TKD, they can distribute their feature film on almost all revenue generating platforms in North America using a hybrid of pre-set and negotiated terms already secured by Dauntless Studios.


The “Turn-Key” aspect involves the rights holder paying a tier fee upfront which covers the costs of access to all TKD platforms, the applicable tier marketing costs, servicing fees and consulting services. In exchange, the rights holder recovers 100% of Adjusted Gross Revenues from all pre-negotiated platforms. Our turn-key system allows the creative teams for each picture to focus on marketing and promoting their film’s release, remaining worry-free and confident of the film’s accessibility within the marketplace.


TKD CORE


TKD 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). The TKD Core tier fee covers all costs associated with the multi-platform release, base marketing and PR campaign, and servicing and consulting fees. Depending on the distribution needs of your film, various tier add-ons are also available to provide the film with the greatest opportunity to generate revenues and market penetration.
