The interesting part is that I was approached by a VFX company in India that does great work and they are interested in partnering on the film with us. I looked at my VFX budget and found that 300K is based in VFX if it were to be shot here and posted here in Canada. The budget I received from them was considerably lower and I was unsure if I wanted a partner in the film.
Then I did some research on the market in India for this film and it was basically 10-12K for all rights for India if I were to sell it traditionally. So I called them back and made them a deal that they could have all of India, Pakistan, and few other small territories for them doing the VFX to a level of production value we all agreed upon.
That got me thinking more about certain places that I don't really like selling to (or trying to monitor pay schedules) and thought.... what if the music was done in Bulgaria or Ukraine, and what if the Foley was done in Columbia? Am i really going to miss those territories?
Stay tuned as I explore the piece mealing of entire film for rights.
