Going back to our inspiration behind creating such a platform, we work differently from traditional distributors where the model is based on revenue-sharing, or the likes of VOD platforms where there is a cut of monetisation involved from advertisers etc. There are no advertisements in our video player, as at the heart of it, we would like to respect the story as it is. In terms of the model we adopt, we've been building & growing the online audiences for curated films at the moment. We don't have the means to provide direct monetary benefits and want to be transparent about this.
For short films showcased on the platform, we help promote and market the films (be it positioning of content, crafting of articles, extending reach on our social channels) to share to wider audiences. Hence, with the marketing resources from our team, we're able to help surface the stories and engineer exposure for the film-loving crowd! At the same time, joining our Viddsee creator filmmaking network, will enable us to identify more opportunities (e.g film screenings, profiling, commercial opportunities) along the way and share it with our filmmaker community.
