Our sponsorship is based on the advertising revenues generated on our platform. Every user gets a free channel upon signing up. We call these channels “Web TVs.” You can curate your Web TV by uploading your videos* or by selecting films from our Open Film Library. You will receive 50% of the revenues generated on your Web TV channel.
Every week, our programming team will select a Web TV to be featured on our homepage. The featured Web TV will receive extra exposure and traffic, which will result in significant amount of increase in the revenues. We hope that you will use this money to fund your next project to keep the cycle of creativity going! The revenues are based on page views, so the more people go to your page, the more revenues you make.The amount of revenues generated on a Web TV depends on how much traffic it receives as our revenue-share model is based on page views. For this reason, it’s important for users to promote their films to their audience and drive as much traffic to their Web TVs as possible.
*Our programming team is always on the lookout for powerful, inspiring, and creative content that is well made! There are certain factors we look at when we evaluate the submissions we receive, such as production value, originality, editing, story, etc. We get really excited when we see inventive and unique videos, whether they are live action or animation. So, upload your best work today!
How to promote your Web TV channel
Use social networks! Create a Facebook, Google+ and Twitter page that links to your Web TV. Upload as many films as you can (more films = more pages = more views = more revenues). Connect with your audience through the blog and photo album tools on your Film Annex page. Share your filmmaking experience with behind the scenes stories, production stills, set diaries, and more. The more you interact and cross-link, the more traffic your Web TV will receive.
