Self-Distributing Your Film? Sell It as a Fully-Featured Android or Apple iOS App with MoPix (NoFilmSchool)
…a new company called MoPix is creating a way for anyone to sell their films by turning them into fully-featured Android or iOS apps.
…which could cost filmmakers anywhere from $1,000 to $5,000 depending on how complicated the app is.
That’s actually not that bad of a deal, considering that’s how much it would cost you to have 1000-5000 DVDs replicated.
Given the advent of mobile computing, releasing a film as an app could very well become the distribution method of the future. Right now caps on app size limit the full potential of app-based distribution, but the benefits could very well outweigh the costs.
But I’m not sold completely, I’d much rather have something like iBooks Author, where I could go and ‘create’ a DVD-like app, but I doubt that will be coming anytime soon.
Here’s a YouTube walkthrough of one of MoPix’s apps.
