4951 Films LLC Webetheater Provides New Opportunities for Filmmakers

ROSEMOUNT, MN--(Marketwire - August 25, 2010) - 4951 Films LLC is a production company with a goal to revolutionize independent filmmaking and distribution with a new webetheater, which will launch this fall on the company's website @ www.4951films.com. It is the only online movie theater to date which allows independent filmmakers to market, distribute, and monetize their movie productions. It fully embraces online live video streaming as a new way to distribute film to the mass media. This allows the filmmakers to sell tickets for their films and it gives the audience the ability to view films that are not available in theaters and still have a theater experience from the comfort of their home. With webetheater, the filmmaker is expected to recoup the costs associated with making the film and also make profits of up to a 400% rate of return. 4951 Films also allows space for members to put their trailers before other movies that are streaming on the webetheater.

Anyone can submit a film, whether it is a short film or feature film, to be reviewed and placed on the website (www.4951films.com) via the webetheater for live streaming. The idea that an independent filmmaker can sell tickets for their films and simultaneously reach a worldwide audience is unheard of. The beauty in this service is that it allows viewers to watch movies that are unavailable to the general public on any computer (PC/Mac) as long as the viewer has an internet connection and at least DSL speed. According to Indy filmmakers, roughly 98% of films submitted to film festivals disappear. The cost to distribute a film to movie theaters worldwide is beyond reach for most independent filmmakers. So, this is a great way to get started. "Forget Me Not " the film launching webetheater currently is featured on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T1lheZXIUKY.
