1. Ibleedindie.com Please tell the readers what it is all about?
IBleedIndie.com is an indie horror ppv and digital sales website.
2. What makes Indie Horror So important?
Indie horror is important because that is where all of the true creativity in the genre is. Big budget studio horror films are just cash grabs.
3. What is the goal of I bleed indie for the Filmmakers, the Genre & the fans?
For the film makers: It provides a vod platform for indie, especially self distributing, horror film makers where they get 90% of the revenue and keep all of the rights to their film!
For the fans: It provides a place to discover hidden gems they might never find otherwise, all with the knowledge that the money is going right to the source! See a film on Amazon and on ibleedindie? Rent it on ibleedindie. Amazon keeps 50% of revenue, we only keep 10%.
4. What inspired I bleed indie to come into fruition?
My love for indie horror and having helped produce several indie films which ended up being self distributed. It helped me realize just how much of a void there was. Self distribution gives film makers control over their intellectual property, but it also hampers them in some ways such as VOD options. So I aimed to fix that.
5. With Netflix talking about only showing their own content is this an opportunity for I bleed Indie to become the place to see Horror streaming? where do you see I bleed indie in the next 5 yrs?
I don't think it will ever be the primary place for horror streaming. I won't take big studio films and obviously there will always be a big demand for those. However, in 5 years we would certainly be a contender for traffic and we WILL be the largest online collection of horror long before then. Shudder currently sits in the number one spot with 450 films. We already are closing in on 200 and we have only been in operation for a month.
6. I personally love I bleed Indie why do you think others will love it?
Because if they are like me they are going to love discovering something new. This isn't the place to go to watch your favorite horror film. It's the place to go to find your new favorite you might never have even realized existed! Take a chance, watch something you haven't seen before. A lot of these movies fly under the radar, but there are so many amazing films already on the site!
7. Thank you for talking to us please add anything you want to tell all your viewers & fans out there?
