IndieDVD Inc., an alliance of independent filmmakers and marketers, has entered into a collaborative venture with Microcinema Inc., to license, author and distribute independently produced cinema, animation and video content on DVD. The shared resource agreement will allow both companies to better serve their common mission — to further propel the worldwide independent motion picture and microcinema movement, and create new markets for independent film and video artists.
Under the agreement, IndieDVD will serve as a DVD distributor of Microcinema’s extensive library, which includes Blackchair Productions’ Independent Exposure, the globally acclaimed collection of curated independent video, film, and digital media short subjects. Microcinema, Inc., in turn, will provide production services and facilities, such as encoding for online video streaming, DVD authoring and digital mastering, for IndieDVD’s own independent motion picture collections. Microcinema, Inc. is now making these services available to artists and distributors around the world.
Microcinema, Inc. and its online complement, microcinema.com, entities recently formed by Blackchair Productions founder and Independent Exposure producer/curator, Joel S. Bachar, will be a powerful Internet micro-portal serving the worldwide industry of independent microcinema artists, producers, promoters, exhibitors, distributors and consumers. The site will provide a unique and entertaining exhibition experience of avant-garde programming and a highly comprehensive catalog of microcinema-oriented information and resources. By distributing selected Microcinema content in the popular DVD format, IndieDVD brings this experience to yet another venue — the home entertainment center.
