CustomFlix Streamlines Screeners20 Mar, 2006 By: Jessica Wolf
Amazon-owned DVD on-demand company CustomFlix Labs Inc. is giving indie filmmakers a leg up in the screener-production department.
CustomFlix has teamed up with Withoutabox Inc, the largest community of independent films and filmmakers in the world, to provide streamlined fulfillment of industry and film festival screeners.
Indies will also be able to create bulk orders and individual retail purchases through the offering.
Filmmakers will be able to manage all ordering, sales and shipment tracking directly from their personal space at Withoutabox.com, where they already manage international film submissions and interact with consumers.
“For filmmakers, this means the long-awaited, fully-clickable festival submission,” said Joe Neulight, president of Withoutabox. “This service will enable submissions to be done for them from anywhere in the world.”
All DVDs created via the CustomFlix relationship will feature four-color disc printing, lacquer coating, an Amaray-style case, four-color cover insert and professional overwrap.
