I am on the edge of my seat for any new movie from my favorite Director, Terry Gilliam, creator of Brazil & 12 Monkeys to name a couple. I often wonder how he manages to capture my dreams in his films. I get pretty excited about a new release. This time though, Terry has made me his partner! Not. Even. Kidding.
oddgirlart.com and online film distributor Distrify, have joined forces in a unique online experiment to sell Terry Gilliam’s new film THE WHOLLY FAMILY.
From the man himself:
“I just sit in a comfy chair and get oddgirlart.com to do all my work,” said Gilliam from his home in Highgate North London. ”Of course gone are the days when I could exploit my helpers for a crust of bread and a cup of sour milk. Oddgirlart.com will also earn money from the selling of the film, which is another first. It is the way forward for filmmakers like me. Distrify means that more of the money made from exploiting a film goes to the people who made and financed it. This in turn means that the money can be reinvested and more films will be made, thus creating more jobs. Distrify is a giant leap forward for the film industry.” Terry Gilliam, Filmaker
This is the first time in history you can get the new film direct from Terry himself, via oddgirlart.com. Instead of cash going to the fat cats it goes right back to making more projects and to me, the fan who would gladly promote the film for free! Terry is a maverick who knows that social media can remove the middle man and go direct to people!
Andy Green, Co-Founder of Distrify.
“We’re thrilled oddgirlart.com has chosen to promote The Wholly Family via Distrify. Blogs and social media are where the real fans are, this is the beginning of a new film economy”
Here is how it works. You will be able to watch the trailer from my page, and even purchase the film for the price of a cup of coffee and watch it for 5 times over 30 days on your computer, iPhone, Android phone, iPad or internet-enabled TV or on all at once, if that’s how you roll!
And without further ado…I can’t wait any more, let’s watch the trailer!
