Nelson Madison Films

Nelson Madison Films We produce and distribute movies. You can see our movies at: http://www.youtube.com/indierights
NELSON MADISON FILMS was formed by Linda Nelson and Michael Madison in 2003. We are an independent production studio with a subsidiary, Indie Rights, that acts as a technology partner for other filmmakers. We have a our own YouTube Rental Channel featuring great indie films in HD and we maintain direct partnerships with premium platforms like Amazon, Google, Mgo, Snag, Roku, and others. We also aggregate for iTunes and Hulu. Nelson and Madison first partnered in 2000 to develop, produce and distribute a giant screen film documenting the pop music mega group, NSYNC. This $5,000,000 film premiered in Los Angeles and screened at more than fifty IMAX and giant screen theaters worldwide. The company's last film, DELIVERED, was written, developed, and produced entirely in-house in 4K. The goal of NELSON MADISON FILMS is to produce economical, independant features that utilize local talent and innovative, high-tech production techniques. Our production facility is capable of delivering high quality feature films, music videos, commercials and documentaries. We have been a featured company this year by such prestigious companies as Adobe, Intel and HDVideoPro. DELIVERED was shot on RED and edited using Adobe's new 4K workflow. You can see more about the film at http://www.deliveredmovie.com Our newest film, LA PI is in development and will be in pre-production by summer of 2015

Nelson Madison Films produces feature films and commercials using innovative digital techniques and equipment including RED Digital Cinema cameras, Adobe's CS5 post production software and the latest social media tools to build audiences for their films. Indie Rights is the distribution arm of Nelson Madison Films. Based on the experience of founders, Linda Nelson and Michael Madison, the need for a new type of distribution for independent films is evident. Thousands of great independent films are made each year and never find an audience. They play at film festivals all over the world and are never discovered by the sales agents and distributors that frequent only the top tier festivals, such as Sundance and Cannes. These festivals used to be filled with fresh original voices from new talent, but now act as advertising vehicles for “classic divisions” of major studios or showcases for already established actors, directors and producers. Film markets, like AFM, are too costly and complex for most independent filmmakers. Indie Rights offers distribution services to filmmakers who have feature-length films that have not found an audience. We also arrange licensing of film content to qualified buyers. Finding an audience for your independent films has never been easier. New ditigal distribution platforms exist that will allow you to benefit directly from your work. Indie Rights was formed to help you find your audience. Much of the work can be done by you, but if you want or need help distributing your film, we can provide that help. Indie Rights specializes in digital distribution and has excellent relationships with all the major platforms so that your film can be available to audiences through such popular platforms as iTunes, Hulu, Playstation, YouTube Rentals, Snagfilms, and Vudu as well as the most popular apps for Facebook. Our services are non-exclusive, we charge no up-front fees and we work with all our filmmakers to educate them about the use of the most innovative marketing and social media tools available for marketing independent film.

Mission: Make great films using innovative technology and help ourselves and other filmmakers build great audiences for our films.

So excited to be a part of Dances With Films history.

DWF9 introduced us to Linda Nelson and Michael Madison of Indie Rights Movies. Linda graciously wrote a few lines for us about DWF - here's what she had to say:

DWF9 in 2006 was a very special year for Michael Madison and myself, as it was the beginning of our relationship with DWF: SHIFTED, the first digital film that we wrote, shot, edited and distributed, premiered at the festival.
Right after DWF9, we formed Indie Rights, one of the earliest digital distribution companies. We started the company with SHIFTED and several other films that screened at DWF. Now we distribute over 450 independent films, including more than twenty movies that premiered at DWF over the past ten years; films like FRAY, Druid Peak, Dirty Beautiful and FOOLS have found a wide, global audience through Indie Rights.
In 2011, we returned with our next movie Delivered, which was the closing night film at DWF14. DWF has been part of our lives for more than ten years now, and I'm sure we will continue to see great films come from this festival.

Linda also shared some photos with us: one from the SHIFTED Q&A at DWF9, a snapshot of a Variety article written by Anne Thompson discussing SHIFTED and Linda and Michael's outlook on the future of digital distribution, and a red carpet picture from the premiere of DELIVERED at DWF14. Thanks for sharing, Linda! #DWFrewind

So excited about our 10th anniversary.

Just found this article that Anne Thompson of indieWIRE did back when she was writing for Variety. Interesting to see that the parent company of Variety just purchased Indiewire from SnagFilms and she will once again be associated with Variety. It's very cool to revisit this article as it is about the birth of Indie Rights and very appropriate as we celebrate our 10th anniversary.

LA PI

This is the second film we will bring to the market. Linda Nelson and Michael Madison will be at the American Film Market looking for pre sales for two feature films. We will be in room #318.

LA PI is a contemporary, action packed thriller.

The Story of LA PI is told by Jim, a street smart Private Investigator, hired by a young woman to find her missing father. When his body turns up as an apparent accident victim, the daughter convinces Jim that it was no accident. Jim’s investigation leads him down a dangerous path as he uncovers an ever-widening trail of murder, corruption, and social injustice that tears at the very heart and soul of Los Angeles.

Linda Nelson and Michael Madison will Produce with past collaborator, Chic Daniel, an experienced technical and weapons adviser, who has helped guide Directors like Michael Mann and Steven Soderberg and prepared actors like Benicio Del Toro to give authentic performances. Set in downtown Los Angeles, using practical locations and real action that isn't dependent on special effects, this film mirrors a real city, facing real issues. Linda Nelson and Michael Madison own Indie Rights, a movie distribution company with guaranteed distribution of the film directly to VOD partners like Google Play, MGo, Amazon. Indie Rights also distributes to iTunes, VUDU, XBox, PlayStation, Hulu and Adrise.

Had a great opportunity to share some of our experience with distributing indie films with Tom Parish on his hugely popular blog. He does a wonderful job interviewing people to get to the meat of the topic. We also talk a lot about production and the need to prepare with distribution in mind and how you can use social media to save money during production.

Think about it – what could you learn from a distributor, really? For me, finding an answer was a stretch. If you’re like me and you assume distributors are a kind of invisible gatekeeper, then it’s difficult to get over the mindtalk running in your head that a distributor is out to get you in some…
