Stephen Sommers: How Odd Thomas was financed at the AFM.
"At the studios, it's all about movies based on toys, video games and comics. I've done them and that's what the studios want from me. Dean (Koontz) and I went to AFM and raised the $27 million budget in two days." from deadline.com
“Neill goes to South Africa. He shoots the test with Sharlto, and then we come back and we package the whole thing together, our script, the graphic novel sort of production design, and the test. And we gave it to a company called QED, who raised finance for films. They went to the American Film Market, I think about two years ago. And raised the money to make the movie. And ultimately Sony bought the rights to distribute in most of the territories around the world. So it was an independent movie, shot as an independent film, but distributed by Sony now. And Neill went off and shot it." from scifiwire.com
