We are in the early stages of a massive paradigm shift that will forever change people’s attitudes towards “consuming” film and TV. With shelves of books, video and music reincarnated in the Cloud, opportunities for indies are rapidly changing. A $10 gross profit on a DVD is now a nickel for a stream. The proliferation of digital platforms—with Microsoft, Amazon, Google and Netflix leading the charge—calls for nimbleness, flexibility and DIY savvy. These skills are old-hat to the indie producer. And as we know, connecting social media between your film and its audience is key. New Video moderates a panel of filmmakers and technology experts who will share their vision of the future, critical insights on new trends, and concrete strategies for survival in a post-ownership world. Specializing in indie, documentary and art house films, New Video distributes across streaming, downloading and cable VOD platforms and hard goods to a broad spectrum of stores and platforms.
