Getting your DVD on, research notes set 1

I am slowly walking towards having Date Number One on DVD (this month! it'll be a December miracle! :), & so I am looking at places to sell the DVD - is definitely a place I want to get my DVD in to. So I just did a little bit of research on how a DIY filmmaker & ultra low budget self-distributor such as myself can get my DVD on Amazon. Looks like there are three options: 1) "ALL AMAZON" (my term): CustomFlix - Amazon's wholly owned subsidiary CustomFlix makes copies of the flick, Amzaon lists the DVDs on their site & mails 'em out to customers, costs: unknown to me at this point, more research is necessary, 2) "YOU & AMAZON": Advantage - you make the DVD & Amazon stocks a few & lists the titles on their site & fulfills orders & you get to keep up on the transactions on a regular basis & replenish DVDs as they sell 'em, costs: $29.95 a year & 55% commission, there maybe other costs, more research is necessary, and option 3) "ALL YOU": Pro Merchant selling - you make & stock the DVD & fulfill the orders & list stuff on Amazon, cost - $39.99 a month (they are having a sale now, $19.99 for the first two months), plus there maybe other costs, more research is necessary. Well, I have a rough idea now about what the Amazon options are for selling my DVD through their site. The Advantage option looks like the best one for me at the moment; just the right combination of self-distro & Amazon support, & checks & balances to make my control freak self comfortable :)

The Meyerowitz Stories is very good

Note - I saw the movie before the Dustin Hoffman sex assault allegations story broke.  Not sure what kind of an experience I would have had watching the movie had I knew about the allegations.

Great movie, well written, well acted.  An interesting NYC experience.

Check out the movie at Netflix -
