Hey there, faithful reader(s). I will be back soon with some posts I’m working on. Namely continuing both the VOD Options for Independent Films and Series article and the Open Source Short Film Business Model piece. There’s actually quite a bit of crossover between these two because the VOD is an important piece of the puzzle for the short film biz model. I’m planning to run a pretty extensive and transparent look at specifics of the VOD options as I put my short film strategy into place. Then I’ll expand on what I’m doing in the short film world and I’ll be releasing more films.
But… it’s going to be a little longer that I’d planned before I can bring these out. I’m releasing new episodes of DIVERGENCE now. After a long-ish delay, Season 1: Episodes 7-11 are now becoming available each week. AND we’re migrating to a new platform as we’ve joined the incredible Zombie Orpheus Entertainment Network to expand our audience. So I’m definitely going to be talking about that as well over the next few weeks. And of course, it’s the summer salad days for those of us in video production—which means you really only have time to scarf down a quick salad and then it’s back to work on all the projects you need to shoot.
So bear with me a minute. I have some great stuff coming your way.
A lot of great stuff is happening for my independent series DIVERGENCE. The series is an official selection at New Media Festival in Los Angeles at the Landmark Theater June 11-12, 2013. Dan and I will both be in attendance and will do a Q&A. You can still get tickets, though I’ve heard from the festival that very few remain.
As great as that is, the big news is that we now have five new episodes to air. DIVERGENCE Season One Episodes 7 through 11 will start airing June 10, 2013 with a new episode each week. We will be on our regular YouTube channel if you like watching it there, but we are trying to push traffic to our own site, WhatIsDivergence.com — which is getting a facelift and new player thanks to our joining the ZOE Network. I’m going to write a post about ZOE shortly because it’s quite impressive what they’ve built and we are very pleased to be joining their family of web series.
And we have even more DIVERGENCE news coming, so keep an eye out!
