Build your film’s iPad app with MoPix

Tweet Greetings! Here is an interview with Ryan Stoner, CEO of MoPix, a turn-key platform to enable filmmakers to create their own mobile film apps. They appified the BitTorrent released movie, The Tunnel. The Tunnel garnered a lot of press for selling frames of the film as funding. MoPix is currently in private beta. BTBO: What inspired the founding of MoPix? RS: MoPix was founded as a solution to the problem many of our independent filmmaker friends are currently facing here in Los Angeles and around the world and our desire to help them. How do I distribute my film? Outside of the film industry, most film fans think that if a filmmaker can easily raise funding through Kickstarter or other platforms, they can surely distribute their film. But that is not the case. The distribution model is still based upon opening box office performance as the critical indicator of a film’s success and influences all downstream contracts regarding DVD, international, network, satellite, cable television, and Internet and mobile sales. As a result, most filmmakers must either give up control of their film to secure distribution or keep control and distribute it through an online platform where there is no proven revenue model. So our solution is to give power to the filmmakers by allowing them to be the distributors and directly release their film as an app through our MoPix platform. If independent filmmakers truly believe they don’t need Hollywood to make a film, shouldn’t we also believe that we don’t need Hollywood to distribute our films?

7 cool film apps for the iPhone and iPad

Now you can find freelancers, companies like Stonehenge Productions and Mopix (to come) that will turn your film into an app. I also hope that as time goes on we will see companies really leveraging the features of the iOS to enhance the storytelling experience. Here a list of 10 cool film apps for the iPhone. The Dark Night OK even if this app sucked as long as the movie was in it, it probably would have made my list because I love this movie and pretty much all things Batman, except for the one that had the Governator in it.

[SLIDES] Distributing Your Film Online

Tweet I had the pleasure of doing this talk at the Triangle Video and Film Meetup this past Wednesday. The audience was very cool. Based on the surveys I got back people were most interested in getting their content on iTunes and Amazon Video on Demand and were happy to hear about aggregators like Distribber and IndieFlix who can help them do it. It contains great quotes from my interview with Mynette Louie and Tze Chun of Children of Invention, great content from Brian Newman and quotes from Thomas Allen of Short of the Week and lots more. Anyhoo, take a gander and let me know what you think. Distributing your film online View more presentations from Malaika...
