Eight has been ripped and is available to be pirated here. I've made it at last! This film is nearly 10 years old now. And it still gets attention. It just goes to show that films are a good investment in the long term - but only if you keep them alive.
Mr Vista, the online downbeat comedy series for geeks had a few personal goals. I wanted to get a series that had a least quarter of a million views, would act as a good viral showcase and would break even in terms of funding. A partial success here. Audience wise we are slightly short - coming in somewhere around 150k views. Not too bad. It has opened a few doors for me to get some commissioned virals, but only in the few 100 quid bracket. And it is breaking even just - enough to fund a second series though. Some sources of advertising are drying up however and I wonder if I am seeing a trend (or just a dip) in falling video ad spend. Perhaps the competition has simply caught up at last and there are more film makers and films competing for the same money???
10 Seconds still gets picked up for various screenings and also on-line showcases like here. In fact both 10 Seconds and Mr Vista form part of the Media Guardian Viral Awards. You can watch them again below if you are new / feel bored / feel charitable to let me win. This may be the first ever competition where the winner simply has to get the most views. Never mind the quality feel the width! I should have entered a ten second shot of my ass and seen if I could won with that.
