At The Nerdologist we think creative people should have access to amazing online resources that allows them to share and sell their work and earn revenue so they can be resourced to go and create more fantastic things.
In an effort to actually make a difference to the world we have built an amazing app that makes these things possible. One of the areas that we are really interested in is film. The reason for this is that film is a medium that allows amazing people to communicate with the world in a really engaging way. It is an excellent way of telling stories, sharing knowledge and inspiring people.
We realised that the current funding and distribution paradigms are not working as well as they could for film makers and by and large online opportunities are not being taken advantage of.
So we created www.fillim.com At Fillim We are determined to make a difference to creatives and producers in the film industry to ensure that the lions share of profits goes back to them allowing film makers to have the financial independence to create their next film! We have structured Fillim so that we do not limit other distribution sources for the films. This way film makers and producers can increase the exposure their films get, and Fillim works really hard to push films out to our rapidly growing networks of film obsessed viewers.
We love online streaming because it is secure for the film makers and allows for worldwide distribution. The film viewers don’t need to store the films locally but retain access to the films so they can enjoy them when they choose. We encourage film makers and producers not to grant exclusive video on demand rights to any one distributor because it means that they end up with only one group advocating their films. This is contrary to the potential of online platforms as it severely limits exposure. We have also made it totally feasible for the film maker and producer to become the distributor so that they don’t lose a big chunk of revenue to distributors who may or may not push the films hard.
At Fillim we have leveraged social media… Film makers now have the ability to embed their own social capital into film distribution so that they can carry this over to future projects and have a ready made audience who will become the advocates of their films. This way they can communicate with audiences right through the entire process from conception to execution.
We are so excited to see where Fillim.com and other similar platforms takes the industry. We will soon see films that are made for platforms like ours because they will soon be recognised as the most important distribution models for film makers. Cinema release will always be wonderful as will festivals however there is another way that has huge revenue potential for film makers and more importantly means that films will be viewed by much bigger audiences across the planet.
