The pilot episode of the non-TV “Pioneer One”, a donation-funded series, is made available on the BitTorrent tracker website site VODO specializing on indie movies. 6 more parts of the “Pioneer One” are expected to follow later. The project releases some hints at the future of peer-to-peer TV.
The best thing about peer-to-peer networks and services is that they provide the creative artists so many ways to target the audiences that have never been possible before. Both moviemakers and performers can release their works to fans in those parts of the globe where the traditional physical distribution may be financially impractical or just impossible.
Here the sci-fi drama called “Pioneer One” goes. This peer-to-peer TV-series was produced for as much as $6,000 and released via the indie movie BitTorrent website Vodo.net.
Once made available, a week ago it managed to become the most popular series on the BitTorrent accounting for more than a quarter million counting and downloads, thus leaving much more well-known shows from the likes of HBO and the BBC far behind.
The producer of the show, Josh Bernhard, said he’s just ecstatic that the pilot version has already reached so many people throughout the globe. Well, BitTorrent is no less exciting on this issue, as it shows perspectives: performers are able to directly target fans, as there aren’t any material gatekeepers in this scheme that would determine what work will or won’t be released.
Jamie King, the creator of the VODO network, announced that the success of this series was really great news for the entire peer-to-peer community, because now they have the possibility to distribute content that rivals and is going to soon surpass the amount of the mainstream media. In addition, the community is handed out a new working business models benefiting creators.
They were the fans who sponsored “Pioneer One”. They have donated over $10,000 to the creator of the series in order to make it possible for him to film more future episodes. The sponsorship deal of VODO, created for the show, shares profit with producers too, assuming that their target of gathering $30,000 for new episodes will undoubtedly be met.
The plot of the series is the investigation of an object fallen out of space, discovering a forgotten relic of the Russian space program, coming back to our planet to influence the whole world.
