Christopher Boone

New Mexico Film Works - July 30, 2015

Christopher Boone (Writer/Director) is an award-winning screenwriter and filmmaker living in Albuquerque, New Mexico. His screenplay CENTS was a 2012 Academy Nicholl Fellowship in Screenwriting semifinalist and was invited to the second round of the 2014 Sundance Institute Screenwriting Lab selection process. CENTS marks Christopher’s feature film debut.

His short films have won multiple awards and screened at film festivals in Los Angeles, Chicago, Brooklyn, Miami, Washington, DC, San Diego, Philadelphia, Santa Fe and Woods Hole, MA, in addition to several venues across the state of New Mexico Christopher contributes to the blog No Film School where he shares lessons learned from professional screenwriters about the craft and business of screenwriting. He is also a panel moderator for the Austin Film Festival and Conference."

I also found his DISTRIBUTION strategy quite interesting. He's partnered with TUGGS. What is Tugg? Tugg is a theatrical on-demand platform that lets you request a one-time screening of Cents at your local movie theatre. If you can sell tickets in advance (usually around 80), the screening is guaranteed. If not, no one gets charged.
