Distribber Collapse

Hello Shooters,

If you have any interest in distribution (you should) here is something you should all pay attention to. Aggregator 'Distribber' has essentially collapsed. This isn't 'official' yet but the buzz surrounding this means statements will surely emerge soon.

www.distribber.com

The ever insightful Stephen Follows has just published a good post-mortem analysis of the films they distributed and it's a very interesting read with a few extra insightful comments.

In 2019 distro is a murky game...and don't forget at £0.04 per hour streamed on the 0-99,000hrs tier, Amazon Prime might not be the answer either!

keep filming!

Al Carretta,
Director, Nightpiece Media / Nightpiece Film Festival
