The Indie Vision Project announced today a pipeline distribution deal with ICN for all genres and formats of indie film.
“It has been a long road, but this is one of the last pieces we’ve needed to put into place. Not just a distributor, as we have had representing our projects, but an actual pipeline deal for all projects we champion. This is big for the indie film world!” Announced Scott C. Brown of The Indie Vision Project. “All those indie projects that haven’t been able to get distribution or have fallen out of distribution now have a real chance to get eyes on the project, make some money and potentially expand into something bigger.”
What started as a conversation at the Super Bowl in Atlanta, GA. turned into a full distribution agreement when Larry Adams, the Founder of ICN, and Scott C. Brown, the Founder of The Indie Vision Project and Max It Magazine, met at an NFL business mixer. Over the next several days they discussed their plans for the future. Each found the other’s methods to be inline with helping indie filmmakers reach their audience, without the large studio gouging.
“When I mentioned a profit sharing basis for the hundreds of thousands of indie films that couldn’t get paid distribution, Larry told me that he was just expanding his network’s feed and needed quality content.” Scott commented “Knowing the indie film world as well as I do and having built the trust of the community, I knew we were onto something that could truly be great!”
Over the last several months, terms were hammered out and an official pipeline distribution deal was agreed too. The Indie Vision Project will be fielding all submissions for quality review and submission to ICN for distribution on their TV network, through their online, streaming and on demand services. Based on an equal profit sharing format, with revenue already in place, The Indie Vision Project is now accepting submissions of features, pilots, full series and shorts of all genres.
“Unlike a lot of the networks out there, we’re looking to share the wealth and not lock any project out that is well-shot and edited. If it is quality, but hasn’t been able to get distribution, or has fallen out of distribution, we want to have the opportunity to make the filmmakers money on it.
No, we’re not funding new projects currently, and this isn’t a buyout deal, but it is a way for those that think they don’t have any options to finally have a real chance. Especially all those pilots that haven’t gotten picked up. We have a special project in place to see if they can be leveraged into a full series.” Commented Scott C. Brown.
“We have been talking with film distributors and found Scott Brown, of The Indie Vision Project & Max It Magazine, to be a perfect fit for us. Our visions parallel, as do our understanding to the Indie filmmakers’ community’s needs for distribution.” Stated Larry Adams, from his production studio in Phoenix, AZ. “We look forward to a solid and positive partnership between our companies and to further enlighten the public to what greatness exists within the Indie community.”
