The director of the movie, Justin Eugene Evans, recently released the first part of his film to BitTorrent through the VODO services, thus joining the ranks of other content creators who have chosen to distribute their work on the Internet through the ever present file-sharing medium.
The film director admitted that he had received a dozen offers to release the movie via other traditional methods, but none of them had made sense financially or artistically. Instead, every producer’s representative, sales agent and independent distributor offered him with a draconian contract. That’s why the film creators decided to choose BitTorrent’s technology and VODO’s ability to deliver content to the audience, which is able to give their work global reach. Meanwhile, VODO’s donation model suits the creators, because with its help they will be able to earn their investors just as much as they’d have received from LA sales agent. Despite the fact that experiments like this still raise inevitable questions over business models, it is clear that the platform is ready and BitTorrent has proven their intention to help. So, “A Lonely Place for Dying” is already available on VODO for free download, offering Internet users to pass along money via the donation feature on the page.
Meanwhile, the chief strategist at BitTorrent reminds that the system is dedicated to helping moviemakers overcome the hurdles of worldwide content distribution by eliminating expensive infrastructure and providing direct access to a massive audience. Indeed, the BitTorrent’s 100,000,000 user community is undeniably a viable option for creating a fan base, with the company encouraging its users to download the movie and support the moviemakers.
“A Lonely Place for Dying” is not the first film distributed online for free – the earliest one was called “Elephants Dream”, and it certainly shared a good degree of success. Now it’s good to know more film directors are heading down a similar path. Actually, there are a lot of success stories starting with free distribution on almost every major kind of entertainment: RadioHead’s “In Rainbows” album, Wolfire’s ever famous Humble Indie Bundle games, and so on. Now it seems to be only a matter of time before more people are willing to experiment with this idea.
