Google & Youtube transform movie industry

Google, Youtube and other free distributors of independent movies will transform the industry.

Already the number of daily downloads exceeds the number of persons watching theatrical cinema releases.

With 40 million video downloads a day independent filmmakers are using the internet to bypass conventional distribution methods.

Not only is the internet transforming distribution, but it is also transforming production.

The rise of the Open Source Movie Production (OSMP) system, based on software methods, has brought us "Elephant's Dream" and "God's Companion".

The former hailed as the first open source short film and the latter the first feature length open source movie.

These innovations have the potential to grow into new virtual studios to rival Pixar and Dreamworks.
