When you are producing a film, you should also be aware about the various techniques of distribution. It is very important to understand the intricacies of content rights so that you can make the most out of them. There’s a general misconception that theatrical rights is the only kind of rights that you can sell as a movie producer. Here’s a look at some other types of rights that can be sold as well. Ultra Media and Entertainment is one of the leading companies which are into film distribution and content acquisition. One must always look at ways to maximise profits by understanding the dynamics of various types of content rights.
Film dubbing rights
As we all know, Cinema has no real language. India, being a diverse country in terms of languages, there are several amazing regional films that are being produced these days. Some of these have crossed the regional barriers and are in demand all over the country. In these conditions, it becomes necessary to dub the film in a language that can be accepted and understood elsewhere. Film dubbing rights come into the picture in these cases. Suppose you have made a popular regional film and someone wants to dub it in another language and release the same in their locality. He or she would have to buy dubbing rights from you before going ahead with the plan. Ultra has a huge library of films, all of which have the potential to be dubbed. We also acquire dubbing rights of popular films in some cases.
Overseas theatrical rights
Many producers do not consider this option because they think that their films would not have an audience overseas. You should not have these assumptions in mind from the beginning. There is a demand for all kinds of films all over the world. You can still try and look for overseas distributors and sell overseas theatrical rights. This will allow you to expand your audience base which is only going to be beneficial when you are releasing your next movie. That’s the reason why it is always better to look for universal concepts that can appeal to all kinds of audiences irrespective of the language or genre.
Film publishing rights
Not anyone and everyone have the right to publish your film through online or digital channels. One has to acquire the publishing rights of a film before publishing any content. At Ultra, you can buy film publishing rights of a wide variety of popular titles. As a publisher, you would have more control over the monetary gains and profits. Once you own film publishing rights, you are free to publish this content based on certain rules that are laid down in the contract.
Ring tone rights
The mobile industry is always booming. People are generally on the move and carry mobile phones wherever they go. They also like following the latest trends and like expressing their likes and dislikes. Setting up a ring tone is a personal choice and also indicates a person’s state of mind or likes. Service providers are always looking to acquire ring tone rights of popular songs. As a movie producer or a content rights owner, you have the option to sell ring tone rights to these service providers.
You would mostly find the filmmaker focussing completely on film rights and music rights. There are many opportunities to be explored.
