Legal Movie Downloads

This is a continuation of my previous entry on Digital Cinema - only this is kind of the opposite.

Scott Kirshner (from CinemaTech) has written an article for the Boston Globe entitled "Downloads Enter Hollywood's Mainstream" where he talks about all the various entities either currently utilizing Internet movie downloads or ones that are going to be doing them soon. It's a nice article...

The idea of digital delivery is starting to gain momentum, as studios make more of their movies available to Internet download services like CinemaNow, Movielink, and Vongo. Two other big players could jump in, too. AppleInsider.com, says the company may be considering adding movies to its iTunes Music Store, and last week Amazon.com was reported to be in talks with Universal, Paramount, and Warner Bros. about offering their movies on the site. Moviebeam, a start-up funded by Disney, Cisco Systems, and Intel, started selling a set-top box earlier this year that can store 100 new releases, and will soon support delivery of movies over the Net.

He also talks about Morgan Freeman's new movie "10 Items or Less" that will be released theatrically and via Internet download (produced by Clickstar and Intel).

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.
