AN INTRODUCTION TO EDUCATIONAL DISTRIBUTION
Want to learn about educational video distribution? Whether you have a finished video, are still in production, or just starting with a great idea, it helps to know about distribution early. No matter how inspired, visually appealing, or timely your video is, without good distribution it won't get seen. We've put together a short intro to educational video distribution that you may download here:

A FEW GUIDELINES

Some producers are aware of general production values that result in programs that teachers will use. For example, elementary and high school programs are ideally no more than 26 min. 30 seconds in length (the perfect length for PBS or cable broadcast), or are divided into stand-alone segments, and have no nudity or profanity. When a producer is working on a subject suitable for our collection, we are happy to view rough-cuts and provide feedback.

We also represent films that primarily focus on retail markets. The length of films for retail markets are usually longer -- from thirty minutes to feature length.
