"Bubble" and "Waterborne" Update

Ann Thompson from the Hollywood Reporter has an article on the "success" of "Bubble" with it's day-and-date release strategy and also "Waterborne" - the first movie release via Google Video.
It depends on who you talk to as to whether either were a success or not. I personally think they both were if not only from an awareness and informational point-of-view (and also them being the guinea pigs).

Looks like "Waterborne" got screwed by some calculating error on Google's part (ehhhh, yeah, sounds familiar - like what you'd hear from "regular" distributors). So, it didn't do that much business - although not bad for an unknown movie.

And I have stated before that the main reason "Bubble" didn't do more business was because it was not a good movie. In the end, that's all that matters no matter how you're distributing the film...

Who Am I?

I'm a filmmaker who's produced & directed five feature films including the comedy SPILT MILK (available on iTunes), the new horror/thriller PHOBIA (on iTunes) and the action/thiller KILLING DOWN (which you can buy or rent at pretty much all the usual places).

I also created the Streamy and Webby award-winning web series PINK, which to date has been viewed online around 10 MILLION times at places like YouTube, Hulu, Koldcast and TheWB.com. And speaking of TheWB.com, I also produced and directed an online thriller for them called EXPOSED. It was released summer 2010. And most recently I created a new online sci-fi series called CONTINUUM, which is part of the online indie TV network JTS.tv - Just The Story and NOW available via VOD through indie platform Distrify.

Oh, and I don't shoot weddings. Thanks for asking though.
