Independent film distribution through Amazon September 27, 2006

Posted by James G. Milles in Digital distribution, Independent media.

By way of a posting on Denise Howell’s Bag & Baggage blog, I’ve just learned that Amazon has apparently purchased a CD- and DVD-duplicating company called CustomFlix to offer custom distribution of CDs and DVDs on demand.

Videotapes and audio CDs are professionally digitized, and the resulting files are stored in the CustomFlix Future-Proof Archive™ service, a secure storage and formatting platform that allows content to be repurposed into future digital formats. The Future-Proof Archive™ service supports audio CD, DVD-Video, and WMV-HD DVD. Upcoming support for HD DVD and Blu-ray has already been announced, with additional formats coming in the future.

The CustomFlix Disc on Demand service enables content in the Future-Proof Archive to be manufactured as DVDs or CDs and shipped directly to customers as they order. Customers receive professional-quality DVDs in overwrapped, Amaray-style cases and/or professional-quality CDs in overwrapped jewel cases with full-color covers and lacquer-coated disc faces. Inventory-free fulfillment means more selection for customers and lower costs and risks for content owners.

The website says that distribution through digital downloads is coming soon.

To Whom It May Concern:

My name is Kevin F. Allen, one of the creators of The CLOSET, a dvd-drama series. Last month we released our first of three box sets of The CLOSET and I was interested in speaking with you regarding distribution. Box set 2 will come around July of 2007 and box set 3 will be in October of 2007.

The length of box set 1 is almost 7 hours, which includes:

-An 1.5 hour pilot
-A 1 hour episode 1
-A 1 hour episode 2
-2.5 hours of behind the scenes
-1/2 hour of bloopers

We currently have the show in several stores across the nation, but would love to speak with you regarding distribution abroad since we get several orders per week from over seas. Please visit our website at http://www.thecloset.tv and view the trailer.

I look forward to speaking with you.
