We at Sabi eagerly await the deployment of Open Indie, a new discovery community that expands on Arin Crumley’s pioneering efforts behind Four Eyed Monsters and offers a set of refined tools to all filmmakers. Kieran Masterton has released a development screencast so we can delight in the progress he’s made thus far. A sample of the developing site’s framework is shown using Heart of Now as a test subject. That video has been embedded at the end of this article.
The key feature of this site will be the ability to identify where fans are located so either the filmmakers, or fans of the film, can determine if holding a screening in their area would attract an audience. I’m sure you can see the value in that. It launches in March 2010 and you can follow further developments at their blog.
