Looks really really noisy. Even the stuff that isn't slo mo is super noisy. Maybe it's the color grade? Seems kind of soft too. Maybe it's vimeo, but it just doesn't seem any better than a dslr.
I'm wondering what your thought process was regarding DVD vs Blu Ray? Currently, you can go one or the other, or a combo pack. DVD only packages are the least expensive obviously, however as a filmmaker I feel I want to prepare my audience for when they actually do get a blu ray player, and the swiftly arriving 4k lol. There's also an option to sell a DVD + Blu ray set, but of course thats more expensive and definitely requires more sales in order to get to the break even point. I'm just now going through these questions with my debut feature so this whole article is like perfect timing for me.
Why not just start one thread called "Requested Features", pin it to the top and let people go to town. You'll obviously have some repeats but that would be a good thing. What a pain to have to go looking and searching through the forum to find out what someone already has or hasn't posted. Seems like this would be easiest for you too since all the suggestions would be in one consolidated place.
Secondly, I think taking out a credit card to type in the numbers is too much work for buyers. I don't know if or how this would work, but is there a way for buyers to use an almost 1 click checkout using paypal, amazon, google wallet, apple pay, or whatever? I truly believe that the distance from a buyers hand to their wallet is a 1,000 miles. If you can shorten that journey I believe it would really help with sales.
This is very interesting for me as I am just finishing and premiering a feature film in the very near future. There are quite a few interesting options out there, but the real roadblock with all of them seems to be a lack of a real audience for these distribution channels themselves. Yes, I know it's my job as a filmmaker to build an audience. But I'm waiting for one of these outlets to confirm that they have millions of viewers buying or watching content on their site daily. From what I can tell, there is no built in audience at any one of them. I almost feel like what these sites offer is almost something I could do myself. Yes, I need to be able to sell my film, but that's kind of the easy part. What I need is a massive amount of people who are looking to buy. Whichever one of these distribution models figures that out wins.
There's some good stuff there I guess, but a lot of this feels kind of gimicky, or totally reliant on a large and well established fanbase, which I think takes quite a bit of time to develop. I'm actually just looking for simple ways to raise some simple money, that over the course of a little time will allow me to make another film. Do that a few times, while continuing to work on your fanbase, and then yes one might have an audience and platform built to use some of these methods.
