"Producing commercial quality video is normally expensive and out of reach for many authors," said Peter Clifton, CEO and President, FiledBy. "The efficiencies brought to the process by our partner StudioNow make on-location video shoots and custom book trailers more accessible and affordable. This will allow more authors, illustrators and book contributors to take advantage of the promotional power of the video medium, especially since so many are interested in sharing their video on their FiledBy sites."
