Navigating Movies Online

In Sunday’s New York Times, John Clark considers the increasing number of films and clips available on The Internet, via websites like YouTube. Will filmmakers defy the industry and create direct relationships with their audiences? Its a period of great change, according to Sundance’s Geoff Gilmore. New websites are emerging to try to tap into the web video boom, witness the recent launch of iKlipz, with few notable industry-types involved, while tomorrow (Monday), will mark the official launch of The Daily Reel, another new site, one aimed at filtering the many online clips to find the best each day. Back in Clark’s Times article, Sundance’s John Cooper notes that it may be tough for the Net to spawn a blockbuster, “Culture is content driven, not medium driven.” [Eugene Hernandez]
