Forget Hollywood

Here's my latest piece for The Times, a mini-profile of an eccentric 26-year-old Finn who aims to sink the Hollywood studio model by releasing his second film online only. His first, a Star Trek parody, amassed an incredible 10 million views -- a true success for a first-time filmmaker. Can a second sci fi parody score him a similar audience? Stay tuned.

Note: The previous link went to somebody else's story. Oops.

there's a young roman filmmaker (alex infascelli) who recently did something of the same sort. he released his film directly to the edicole (newspaper stands). A very clever move in my opinion since everyone and their mother goes to edicole and is willing to spend 10 euro to buy a flick. Check it out, it’s called H2 Odio.
