Brief FAQs of self-distribution (or what you should have prepared to move forward):

1. In creating a DVD provide 5-7 minute chapters. Don’t randomly pick the timing, use whole thought segments.

2. Secure disability accessibility features such as closed (or open) captioning and audio descriptions.

3. Prepare to process orders in any way convenient for customers – be it check, purchase order, or credit card.

4. Have multiple format options for delivery, including DVD, streaming, digital download, or the right to access from a central server.

5. Include good artwork and a clear synopsis in your professionally made materials for presentation.
