The veterans of the movie industry tell us that all this distribution deal disappointment is a result of improved technology. They optimistically tell us that our lost DVD revenues will be recouped by Video On Demand.

And I share my thoughts on VOD (video on demand) distribution – and how this sales channel finally gives every filmmaker the opportunity to create multiple streams of movie income.
