Members of The D-Word documentary community can now "sell movies socially" with Distrify. The Distrify player can easily be embedded in film profiles and postings on The D-Word.
Wow, I was completely unaware of this collaboration until just now!
Yes indeed, myself as well.
Have there been new developments since November 28, 2011 that I might want to learn about?
Yes indeed, we have something pretty cool to announce very soon. Stay tuned!
I finally read through this topic and the various Distrify examples and links. This looks great. I am very interested in hearing the new announcement. I also would like to hear what has developed for offering free screenings via Distrify. Earlier posters talked about their willingness to pay the associated costs if they offered streaming free to select viewers. I wonder if free viewings could be available on a wider basis via Distrify – say I want to have some free titles on my site, using the same platform and interface as my pay titles. Is there a way to price that type of service where it makes sense for the filmmaker and for Distrify?
We have a system in the works for sending out free preview screeners (for festival programmers, reviewers, etc.). We also have an option where you can allow people to view for free if they sign up to your mailing list. The final pricing for these is being worked out and we anticipate launching these products soon, but if you want early access, just let us know.
I just saw this too. I spoke with someone at Distrify last year and it sounded great so I'm interesting in hearing more about this collaboration with D-Word. Guess I need to hang out here more often as well since it's filled with fellow doc makers
btw, for anyone interested in collaborative film projects, below is a link for the first globally collaborative music doc in history. Filming started in 2000 and ongoing to this day and will be released in volumes. The series features a lot of respected music artists and labels you may recognize, especially if you're in to more underground electronic music, but it doesn't feature electronic music only. There's a list of artists and labels on the Facebook page and we're redoing the website. Anyone into experimental, electronic or more underground music let me know, I'd love to chat, we work with filmmakers around the world so maybe you or someone you know would be interested in being part of the project. Cheers
