05/15/2009

Popular online video storage and distribution platform, Movielocker.com, recently responded to news that today's current economy is causing an increasing trend of uncertainty for the distribution and sales of independent films.

Online PR News – 15-May-2009 – – Boncourt, Switzerland – MovieLocker.com, a premier online movie sales platform for filmmakers, recently asserted that with the current turbulent economy online movie distribution is on the rise. Movie Locker allows film makers, producers, and others to create a free online video store in 5 minutes. All uploaded videos are protected with advanced DRM technologies. The North County Times recently highlighted this fact with a feature article outlining the decreasing number of films shown at the popular Tribeca Film Festival due to budget cuts and folding production companies.

Like firms across the U.S., independent film companies and businesses who sell video for profit are being forced to make the shift to online distribution and sales in order to remain profitable. As a result, digital film distribution is becoming an increasingly popular and affordable solution for filmmakers to offer widespread access to their video files. MovieLocker users may charge money, accept donations, or offer their videos free of charge.

In addition to independent filmmakers, MovieLocker.com also serves as an online video storage and distribution platform for professional video production companies, video production newcomers, corporate trainers, advertising agencies, and more.

Additionally, by using Digital Rights Management technologies, which are used by even the top Hollywood film studios, MovieLocker.com customers have peace of mind that their files are protected from illegal copying and distribution," says Mary Sears of MovieLocker.com.

In today's economy, financing video production projects is becoming increasingly more difficult, and filmmakers are often looking for cost-effective solutions to bring their work in to mass audiences without breaking the bank. MovieLocker.com offers free video hosting, allowing filmmakers to share movies, to segment viewers, and sell videos online to generate potentially limitless income.

Additionally, users can manage and control their video material distribution by directing the features available on MovieLocker.com.
