Filmmaker, tech junkie, info sponge. On the cutting edge of DIY film distribution, I'm into helping bring about a new model of film distribution in the digital age. As DVD sales continue to decline and video stores continue to close, it's important to find new ways to get our films seen. I'm excited about new platforms like YouTube Rentals that will let filmmakers easily eliminate many layers of middlemen that historically have existed between content creators and consumers. It's an interesting time to be in the film production and distribution business.
