About 

The Movie Agency (TMA) represents Feature Film Producers and is a Film Sales Agency created by Philippe Louis Galliano.

 

Working in this industry for over 15 years after film and law studies in Australia, Philippe has helped filmmakers from all around the world in selling their independent feature films direct to worldwide distributors.

 

The difference between TMA's services and those of other sales agents is clear and simple: Other Sales Agents will surely deduct 20% commission on your sales as a minimum. TMA's commission is 15%. When other Sales Agents might as well deduct their expenses, TMA doesn't.

TMA is usually offering a non-exclusive contract and will never promise you fame & fortune because nobody in this business can.

TMA started in 2017 but Philippe started in the distribution business in 2009 trying to bring Asian films in Australia at the time. 

In 2018 and 2019, Philippe worked with Brazilian production company O2 filmes (City of God - Blindness) to rescue the last feature film of Academy Award and multiple times Cannes' "Palme d'Or" nominee director Hector Babenco: "Meu Amigo Hindu". Mr. Babenco died in 2016 and the release of his last movie was put on hold.

 

Over a couple of months, Philippe was able to secure Worldwide distribution with Tricoast Worldwide - RockSalt Releasing including a Theatrical release in the US, and screening at the Cannes Film Market. The movie stars Oscar nominee Willem Dafoe and is now entitled "My Last Friend".

 

So how does it work?

Submit your film. TMA will contact you back within 48 hours to let you know whether

TMA is in or not.

 

TMA will contact distributors looking for titles similar to yours. When an offer comes around, TMA let you know all about it. TMA will advise you but the decision is only yours. 

 

If you do accept the offer, TMA will get you in touch with the distributor.

TMA can also negotiate the offer for you.

No upfront cost to you.

TMA gets paid when you get paid.

 

Can you guarantee that my movie will sell if we work together?

Nobody can guarantee you a sale however TMA will work hard to get your movie sold and distributed.

 

What are the territories you can sell to and do you attend film markets?

TMA often starts by finding you a distributor in North America before pitching other territories. TMA is represented at film markets including but not limited to EFM, AFM, Hong Kong Film Mart, Cannes, NAPTE Budapest. 

 

Do you deduct anything, any fees I should be aware of?

TMA's commission is deducted from your Net receipts. There is no fees.

In most cases, the distributor pays you and you are then paying TMA's commission.

Why would I need you when I can find a distributor by myself or self-distribute

my movie?

TMA's work isn't just about pitching and finding you a distributor. TMA is also on your

side to assist you in reviewing and negotiating contracts. You will find TMA's experience in laws and entertainment to be very handy if a disagreement with your distributor is occurring. 

TMA also has tons of connections in the business and may assist you in many ways and all of it for free! 

About self-distribution, the idea to be independent is attractive but do you really think that you will be able to compete with a distributor

who has been in the business for decades? 

who has sold multiple movies to multiple buyers over the years or months?

who has developed over the years precious relationships with film buyers of all sorts

and countries?

who has a team of experienced salesmen and marketers? 

who is attending film markets several times a year all over the world?

The answer is no! Getting your film on Amazon for example without marketing budget, without film marketing knowledge is a complete waste of time and very often will lead

in a loss of money if you had the bad idea to use an aggregator. If you have a large following, self-distribution might work for you but a distributor may also use this same large following to your advantage. Getting your followers to do more than what you were expecting is also your distributor's job.

Do you assist with funding and pre-sales?

TMA may come on board of a film project depending on the cast. TMA has contacts with financiers but they are not interested in films with no bankable names attached.

If you have raised a part of the budget, if you have a reputable distributor attached

and you have the paperwork to prove it, TMA may consider helping you out.

 

No upfront fee ever!

Pre-sales have become very rare but are still possible if you have a successful track record as a director or producer, or if your film has bankable elements officially

attached such as actors and/or director.
