Dallas, TX (PRWEB) January 02, 2016
Filmmaker and FilmCloud founder Tricia Woodgett is proud to announce the launch of the exciting new distribution platform!
Based in Dallas, FilmCloud is a multicultural distribution company strictly for independent content providers that will allow filmmakers from all parts of the world to showcase their talent to a global audience. With an initial release in seven markets, FilmCloud will provide a culturally diverse platform for artists that is not currently available to them. “Most platforms focus on a particular region like Nollywood Films, or Bollywood Films and are very narrow in their offerings to artists and film lovers,” explains Woodgett. “I developed FilmCloud along with my friend Carol Price-Williams out of my own frustrations with trying to get distribution. It will allow the broadest stroke of content diversity available to indie artists, and they will get to keep a 60% majority of the profit share from the streaming of their films. It’s a way for artists of all ethnicities and genres to come together in one place and make their films accessible to the viewing public instead of just sitting on a shelf. Carol, our CEO Jacob R. Miles and I are all extremely excited about the FilmCloud launch and what it will mean for filmmakers all over the world!”
Currently valued at $1.5 million, FilmCloud has two primary customer segments: independent filmmakers and viewers of independent films. Filmmakers may submit a trailer link and film summary via the FilmCloud website http://www.myfilm-cloud.com for distribution consideration. Full length features, short films, webseries, documentaries and magazine shows are being accepted for distribution at no charge. In addition to distribution, FilmCloud offers support services such as social media planning, marketing, licensing, special event coordination, licensing and merchandising.
Up next, Tricia is tackling one of the biggest African American folklore tales in history…Black Wall Street. But, Black Wall Street is no myth, and far too many people have little to no idea what happened on June 1, 1921 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The nation’s most affluent black community was bombed from the air and burned to the ground. In a period spanning fewer than 12 hours, a once thriving business lay smoldering – a model community destroyed and a major African-American economic movement resoundingly defused. The night’s carnage left some 3,000 African Americans dead and over 600 successful businesses lost. It’s a story that has been passed around and passed on by Hollywood for years, but will finally be told by Tricia and New Orleans writer/director LeVay Ballet who worked with Tricia on the Carter High project. They will begin location scouting for the movie in early 2016. She is also slated to team up again with Carter High director Author Muhammad for the feature film Little Voice next year.
As her career as a successful producer and director has grown one goal has remained a constant for Woodgett, “As I make my own dreams a reality, I want to be able to provide opportunities for others who have dreams of being in the film industry. I want to enable emerging filmmakers to tell their stories. It’s all about the story, after all these years, I simply love telling amazing, compelling, take your breath away stories, and I want to help as many as I can to tell their stories as big and bold as they possibly can!”
