If you have an animated project, a completed film, are embarked upon an animated project or would like to produce your own animation in the future, there's something you should be aware of.
The new media is emerging and with it, companies that are establishing alternative methods of distribution. I received a notice from a company called AtomFilms. They describe themselves as a "next-generation entertainment company...devoted to one mission: bringing the best in short entertainment to every conceivable audience, through both traditional and emerging distribution channels."
Their goal is "to find and create markets for the world's greatest short films - made by young, contemporary directors and studios as well as those with full bodies of work."
If you're interested or would like more information, contact Wendy Jackson Hall. Her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. There's a phone number you can call: 323-441-9340. Fax: 323-441-9341.
The Internet is going to become a new avenue of distribution for entertainment. There's no question about it. Keep this in mind - the Internet distribution companies of today may be the ones distributing to television and theatrical markets in the not too distant future. I've been told that Showtime has billboards in LA advertising a new animated series on the web. The window of opportunity is opening up. If you've ever thought about producing some of your own stuff, there's a way for the world to see it.
