There are many indie film makers who don’t want to deal with sales agents and distributors. They choose instead to self distribute. And this choice says nothing of the quality of the films themselves as there are some amazing horror movies released in this manner. But, while it leaves the film makers with full control of their movie, it also severely limits what they can do with it. One area it limits is their VOD options. A self distributed film’s only real options before now have been creator-operated Youtube or Vimeo channels, which can’t match a service where fans can browse a large catalogue of films to find some they have never heard of.
This is where IBleedIndie.com comes in. Offering a PPV platform for indie horror films, all the while allowing the film makers to keep all rights to their film in non-exclusive agreements where they receive 90% of all revenue from rentals.
With over 100 feature films with more on the way and a good handful of short films as well, features on the website can be rented for 72 hour periods for $3, whilst short films can be rented for $1.
As well as indie filmmakers, several indie-friendly distributors like Wild Eye Releasing, All Channel Films, Brink Vision, Self Destruct, Cinema Epoch, SGL, and Artsploitation have got on board with the site.
