Disc Makers Offers Online Sales and Distribution for Independent Filmmakers
Disc Makers, an independent media manufacturer, has entered into an exclusive partnership with Film Baby to give indie filmmakers an online outlet to market and sell their DVD titles. Film Baby introduces an online film sales model for indie filmmakers.
Film Baby created an indie-only sales Web site where filmmakers and independent film fans can congregate to learn about little-known films. Film Baby creates individual customized Web pages to showcase and sell their customers' DVDs, including a full two-minute streaming video clips encoded by Film Baby. Each filmmaker sets his or her own selling price, and Film Baby retains a $4 fee for each sale. In addition, Film Baby customers also get the complete contact information of everyone who buys their DVDs. This allows them to communicate directly with their customers and build a database of potential future clients. With this partnership, all new DiscMakers DVD replication customers are eligible to receive a free Film Baby membership.
