PUMit claims to offer internet VOD + PayPal ability & other distribution/monetizing options for filmmakers/content owners

One of my wishes for some time now has been that someone would invent a free or very affordable system/technology that would allow individual filmmakers to deliver their films over the web to customers AFTER the customers have paid for it using PayPal or some other popular, easy to use payment system.

There are already internet VOD companies that can do the work for you; but the actual work, download data, pricing, etc. is a couple of steps removed from the filmmaker at this point - or the filmmaker submits the film to a company/distribution service, they sell it over the web, & give the filmmakers a share of the revenue - that's generally how things work in internet VOD at the moment.

The kind of service/technology I want to see in existence would make the "middle person business" optional; filmmakers being able to sell their films directly to audiences, collect money, etc. - if they wish. On certain projects this may be a useful option to have (and this is also an interest arising from my drive to find gatekeeper free options for indie film production & distribution, since the gatekeepers - studios, critics, distribution companies, film fest programmers, etc. - have not served many & many kinds of filmmakers well in the past).

PUMit seems to be offering just that kind of technology and service (don't know how much, if any, it costs) to content producers. From PUMit's site, info. page:

"For different period of time and authorized countries, you can allow your audience to preview a part of your film and you define the conditions to be fulfilled to watch your film."

And:

"PUMit provides comprehensive dashboards to help you tracking the sales of your films, to analyze their audience, to understand where and how they are watched."

PUMit offers the ability to offer paid VOD, sponsored VOD, & free VOD to consumers. Explore more here.

Hello, my name is Olivier Pfeiffer, I'm CEO of UbicMedia USA. Sujewa is right, the PUMit technology allows filmakers to distribute safely and directly to targeted audiences. UbicMedia also markets a business to business tool called "PUMfilms" which allows to create safe virtual screening rooms to submit projects to potential distributors or production partners. in some cases, this last product is also used to help finance a film through public co-producing such as our customer www.touscoprod.com who allows anybody to invest in projects. On the B to B side a small fixed fee is required for initial virtual screening room set-up and includes the first 50 invitations. On the B to C side the cost structure is simple, it is a very small "per purchased play" fixed fee varying based on content length. So it is really simple and strait forward. And remember, the viewing conditions such as price, number of plays, free preview length, regions, promotional free time windows etc... are managed directly by the filmmaker/right holder. UbicMedia doesn't manage the fiancial aspects but can help with link to paypal or ohter payment system. For more info see our new website at: www.ubicmedia.com

The Meyerowitz Stories is very good

Note - I saw the movie before the Dustin Hoffman sex assault allegations story broke.  Not sure what kind of an experience I would have had watching the movie had I knew about the allegations.
