The Founders of Max It announced today some of the details of their IndiePendence Program that they’re working to bring online. A new broadcast platform focused on the needs of the independent filmmaker, those that love watching it and those that want to support it.
“Based on the beta test we conducted on the original MaxItMagazine.com site last year, the new platform MaxItTV.com will provide indie filmmakers not simply another platform to showcase their work. It will integrate key pieces that all the other platforms are missing to help those filmmakers gain the attention their projects deserve.” Stated the Founder Scott C. Brown from his home in Orange County, CA. “Just as we’ve done to show our concern for the future of indie film by giving it a global voice MaxItMagazine.com, we’re going to be taking that to a whole new level. Max It Magazine will still be there, actively increasing that global voice. The new platform will now be a new tool for indie filmmakers. Especially for those that don’t have distribution. Max It TV will be a non-exclusive platform, which will also integrate marketing, promotion, merchandising, and even a complete crowdfunding toolset.”
“Indie film and those that make it have always been our goal. Noting changes with the launch of the new platform. It merely strengthens what we can do for them. This starts with how they’ll get paid from the platform and continues with how they’ll be able to get funded.” Jonathan Cocco, Co-Founder, commented “From VOD (Video On Demand) to subscription services. We’ll be extremely competitive in our pricing for those watching, while very generous with our new profit sharing format. The vast majority of monies will go directly back to the filmmakers that have their content on Max It TV.
Add to that the merchandising side that every filmmaker will be able to have access to at no front-end cost to them. Then an integrated crowdfunding platform that is completely focused on indie film projects on top of it. I believe we’ll prove that indie is truly the future in filmmaking.”
“Our social media growth has proven that filmmakers and those that enjoy watching it connect with what we’re doing. With the development of Max It TV, just like MaxItMagazine.com, we’re willing to take the risk for the betterment of indie film.” Bryan McClure, Co-Founder, Said from his home in Atlanta, GA. “When the site was hacked our supporters rise to the challenge and helped us bring it back online. The new site is bigger and better, with a lot more security protocols and faster servers. All because of our supporters.
With the development of Max It TV we’re going to use that support to grow the strength of what we’re doing in for indie filmmakers.”
Fast approaching 2 million hits this year on MaxItMagazine.com, the new updated site has continued to receive viewers support and sponsorship to continue its mission. Extensive social media growth continues to expand the voice of the indie film projects that it showcases, while an increase in submissions has created the need to expand the volunteers and employees of Max It.
“Though we still have a small staff, yet very active staff, I think their dedication to indie film is the key to our growth. I believe that when we launch Max It TV it will be their dedication and commitment to our goals that will make it a successful platform for all indie filmmakers.” Said Scott C. Brown “As to the launch date, that’s still being finalized. We’ve the initial pieces in place and tested, but there are a lot of things still being worked on.”
Intended for a late 2016 launch, MaxItTV.com is already reaching out to a variety of initial filmmakers that have submitted press releases to MaxItMagazine.com to discuss their projects being represented on the broadcast site. Dedicated to indie film, several hundred projects have already been approved for the beta launch.
Originally launched in 2013, MaxItMagazine.com has helped more than 6,000 indie filmmakers get attention on their projects, and raise over $1 million in through crowdfunding support. The Founders of Max It are active in supporting indie film and actively work in the film industry.
