Watch the DIY Feature 'Children of Invention' Free on Hulu (For a Limited Time)

Tze Chun's feature Children of Invention was the subject of a No Film School interview, and the film's much-talked-about D.I.Y. distribution has now landed it on Hulu for the next two months. Hit the full-screen button and kick back to the indie film Variety deemed "austerely poetic":

As with most Hulu content, this is only available in a handful of countries (namely, the United States).

Hulu needs to buy a stronger internet transmitter. They will never succeed on the internet if they can't broadcast a signal that's strong enough to reach other countries.

Regionalism is stupid.

(I don't even know what Hulu is. Is it like Spotify? ;-) Is it like TV, but with commercials and no DVR option?)

The internet doesn't work like radio does.
When something is one the internet it is available to any one connected, distance doesn't really matter. At least in theory...

Companies and governments decide what is available to different regions on the internet. Hulu for example disables much of its content for other countries, both licensing and piracy issues. It's much more expensive to purchase international licenses for US content than it is to only show that content within North America.

Also many governments restrict the web content that comes into their country. China and Tibet for example.

And I am sure Hulu is doing just fine with it's current business model.

Just watched the film on Hulu and I loved the work. Job well done.

Also I agree with you about your stance on Vimeo. Internet isn't anything like radio therefore I'm sure their company is doing very well.

Have a Great Day!

We're sorry, currently our video library can only be streamed within the United States.

Someone tell them that Internet doesn't has walls.
