INTERNATIONAL SALES ARE HITTING TARGETS
By Neil L. Kaufman
Legends of Oz: Dorothyâ€™s Return is actively finalizing international sales, with agreed-upon dollar amounts falling in the medium to high ranges of its market price.
Credit for these sales goes to the overwhelmingly positive reception at the recent film festivals and the hard work of the filmâ€™s renowned international sales agent, Hyde Park International, for putting the film in a great position to capture even larger foreign sales.
Founded in 1999, Hyde Park Entertainment, Hyde Park Internationalâ€™s parent company, is one of the leading independent entertainment agencies in Hollywood today. Hyde Park International has become one of the most important foreign sales companies in the world and is a permanent fixture at Cannes, Berlin and the AFM, which are three of the most important markets in the world.
The percentages for all of those countries put us exactly where we want to be. Summertime gets a minimum guarantee on these deals, which is essentially good-faith money similar to a deposit that the distributors will recoup later. It gives them a vested interest in the project and helps the franchise recoup its own money sooner.
The already completed sales put us on target to accomplish our goals, and the offer of a minimum guarantee is just the beginning. Sales are expected to continue from now through the American Film Market here in Los Angeles in November.
