CBS' Supergirl Pilot "Leaks" Online

CBS’ Supergirl Pilot “Leaks” Online

Supergirl is the latest upcoming DC superhero series to have had its pilot episode leaked online. This leak is notable for the episode being in HD quality and without any watermarks, as the German piracy-tracking firm Excipio told Variety magazine earlier today. The quality of the leak, along with it happening so far in advance of the shows premiere date, have led many to suggest that this is…

This is from my first studio shoot, done about a month ago. It was a great learning opportunity as I literally had no prior experience with studio lighting etc.

I think I learned more after the shoot while going through the photos ~ things like composition and lighting that I should be more careful about when I shoot.

A huge thank you to Excipio Vicis Photography for inviting me to borrow his studio for a while~!

It appears the latest victim is CBS and Supergirl. A high-quality copy of the pilot for CBS’ new drama series Supergirl leaked to pirate sites early this morning according to German all-things-piracy-tracking firm Excipio. The news immediately…

Sorry for the long silence ~ my internet connection has been awfully slow and couldn’t manage tumblr. It seems to be better now though, so hopefully I can post quite a few things soon!

CBS’ Supergirl leaks online 6 months early!

“Supergirl” leaks online to many piracy sites!

Just recently the 6 minute trailer of Supergirl was released and stirred up some controversy. Surprisingly enough with the show being about 6 months out and the trailer just being released, Variety reported today that the first episode of the “Supergirl” series starring Melissa Benoist has been leaked online. While studios are refusing to comment and probably doing their best to maintain damage control, it’s hard to stop the spread of the internet and the dreaded bay of pirates.

The first copies appeared shortly before 3 a.m. ET Friday, according to the firm. As of about 9:30 a.m. ET, the “Supergirl” pilot had been downloaded more than 120,000 times worldwide, per Excipio.

So what does this mean for the upcoming series? Will “Supergirl” ratings be hurt by the slew of downloads? Well in today’s internet age, this surprisingly doesn’t always mean defeat. It’s not as detrimental to have a show or film leaked online with the term “viral” now dictating market success. The internet has started to takeover the television and film market with services like Netflix and Hulu being accredited with those referring to themselves as “cable cutters.” It’s been turned into a marketing machine that is now saturated with ads everywhere even before all of your favorite online video originals. So while the leak could be bad for CBS, it could also build a market for the show that they hadn’t anticipated.

It’s rare for a pilot for a new TV show to leak out onto piracy sites — especially so far in advance of the premiere date. On the one hand, the early leak of “Supergirl” could put a damper on initial ratings. However, it could also serve to drive audience to the show and build buzz leading up to the fall season.

While we don’t know the fate of the show please keep in mind that many people spent their time on creating this show just like any other creative work of art. We do not condone piracy at Film Fad and while you think you may be doing something hurting studio “big wigs,” it’s also hurting the average paid talents behind the show like writers, artists, and cameramen. If you are one of those that do seek out the show to illegally download, then please be courteous enough to tune in to the first episode when it premieres on CBS.

What do you think of the “Supergirl” leak? Will this hurt or help the series? Was it an intentional marketing ploy?

Supergirl Leaks Online Months Ahead of Premiere

#Supergirl Leaks Online Months Ahead of Premiere

CBS’ Supergirl has leaked online months ahead of its scheduled November debut. High quality, unwatermarked copies of the pilot landed on file-sharing pirate sites early Friday morning and have since been downloaded more than 120,000 times worldwide as of 9AM EST, per piracy-tracking site Excipio. The apparently unscheduled release of the pilot could serve to undercut ratings (and hence its…

Game of Thrones Breaks Own Piracy Record Again

Game of Thrones continues to shatter all piracy records ever in the history of things. Once again, they’ve broken their own record. As in, the one set they set just last week, when Season 5, Episode 5 “Kill The Boy” notched 2.2 million P2P downloads in 12 hours and 3.22 million in a 24 hour period. That record was only a couple of weeks old itself, as, due to the massive leak of the first four episodes caused Game of Thrones to shatter not only one day records, but one week records.

Someone tell the Pirate King his crown’s been stolen

This past Sunday’s episode, “Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken” reset the one day benchmark once again. According to Variety:

The sixth episode of “GoT” season five notched 3.5 million individual users on peer-to-peer file-sharing sites, according to piracy-tracking firm Excipio. The previous record was held by episode 5 of the current season of “Game of Thrones,” which reached 3.22 million in the 24-hour period after it hit piracy sites….

It’s worth noting that the piracy stats Excipio tracks are only for P2P file-sharing sites, so those exclude piracy-streaming sites. That means the number of illicit viewers is likely far higher than the 3.5 million registered so far.

Game of Thrones seems to be in a bit of a mid-season slump when it comes to week-to-week ratings, even though it still continues to win Sunday nights decisively. But on line, it’s a different story, as users race to download episodes every week. (And the controversy surrounding this week’s episode probably didn’t help matters in that regard. All publicity is good publicity.)

Despite HBO pouring money into HBO Now, and airing every episode in a world wide simulcast, it seems like their efforts have turned out to be incommensurate with the scale of the problem. After all, a simulcast doesn’t solve piracy problems, if the people in those countries don’t get the exclusive pay channel (or the exclusive pay channel that is partner to HBO.) As for HBO Now, it’s US only, so that’s not helping outside our borders. Inside them, some might suggest part of the reason HBO Now didn’t stem the tide was the refusal to make it available to a much broader spectrum of viewers. Right now, you either have to have Cablevision or an Apple TV set box in order to access it. It should be pointed out that Apple TV set top boxes are not nearly as prevalent as Roku boxes, and was even beaten by newcomer Gooogle Chromecast last year. Meanwhile, Cablevision is the ninth largest cable TV provider, with only a fraction of the audience base that, say Comcast, Time Warner, Cox, or Verizon FIOS have. In some ways, that “walled garden” approach to releasing HBO Now has worked in HBO’s favor. Unlike other streaming services that HBO built their platform on, like MLB.tv and the WWE Network, HBO Now has been almost entirely glitch free, something MLB.tv can’t even say after a decade of running. But it does have a price, as the piracy numbers continue to rise.

HBO seemed certain that offering customers the option to watch without a cable subscription through its $15/month “HBO Now” app would help curb the rampant piracy afflicting its most popular shows. Nope! Variety reports that the latest episode of HBO’s megahit “Game of Thrones” has been illegally downloaded 3.5 million times, in a single 24-hour period. That’s a new record. Per Danish piracy tracking site Excipio, this season’s episode six edged out last week’s record-setting 3.22 million downloads. And given that Excipio only really covers P2P piracy, not direct download websites, those numbers are probably a little light. This, of course, comes after the first four episodes of the season were leaked online a full day before the HBO premiere in April. It’s enough to make one to just up and start murdering popular lead characters.
