The new online distribution site zzizzl.com caters for the growth of portable media players, offering independent creators a platform to get their content out to a wider audience and earn money. People spend a large part of the day traveling and away from home, with a lot of 'in between' time that needs to be filled. With more and more portable devices able to play video, everyone now has an additional choice to occupy their time. zzizzl opens up this choice by offering quality independent content to entertain, stimulate and challenge. zzizzl share the profit 50/50 with the content creators, so a single purchase has a real impact for those who created it.        

There are over 3.3 billion mobile phone users with an estimated 10m iPhones to be sold this year. Many brands sell portable media players, with the popular iPod selling 10.6 million in Q2 2008 and over 150 million sold to date. However there is a distinct lack of choice when it comes to finding content for these smaller screens and it's even harder to find quality non-mainstream films and videos. zzizzl supplies each high quality download in multiple formats for the majority of devices in the market, offering independent films and videos and making the whole buying and download process simple to use. zzizzl gives people the opportunity to utilize their personal devices to its full potential at great value - each film is cheaper than the price of a latte.

There are very few avenues for filmmakers and content creators to connect directly with their fans, find new audiences and monetize their content through direct sales all at the same time. There is also a lack of easy to use video download services that offer original quality content from established and new talent alike. "I want to have my film with zzizzl because it's a new approach to film distribution. I believe my film will be able to reach a wider, diverse and bigger audience," says New York filmmaker Roberto Rizzo. "zzizzl really solves the headache of me trying to sell my movie on my own. It's a peace of mind having your film with zzizzl."

Other solutions that sell short films and videos online, require software to be installed before you can download it to your PC and transfer to your player. zzizzl offers downloads in over 20 different formats and sizes, catering for over 90% of handheld devices available. Content is downloaded directly from the browser, with no software to download and install, making the whole process safe and simple for anyone to use. Putting a video onto a handheld device is as easy as putting music onto an mp3 player.

"Now there is somewhere I can visit online, find original, high quality indie films and videos and watch anytime, anywhere. I love the idea that every time I buy the creator gets paid," says Ben Caldwell, a zzizzl user and community member.

zzizzl was invited to attend this year's Cannes Film Festival, where there were over 2250 short films available for viewing. zzizzl also had a short promo shown every hour on the big outdoor screens during the Festival. With more than 1000 film festivals each year, there is no shortage of quality new content.

"The zzizzl website has the WOW factor when showcasing your short film, whilst providing maximum exposure globally for the filmmaker, cast and crew… Truly a real buzz creator", says Australian filmmaker Karen Power, whose film 'Raphael' is available on zzizzl. She also spoke highly of the zzizzl founder. "Dennis Morrison has sensational communication skills and demonstrates great integrity when setting up a filmmaker working relationship. Dennis is interested in assisting indie filmmakers to expose their talents as well as build revenue, enabling the filmmaker to keep creating."

Not just limited to short films, zzizzl also accepts submissions for any content under 45 minutes long. Each film and video is viewed by a submissions panel before selection, ensuring a level of quality. zzizzl is open to all content creators and is an ideal solution for the 8 million artists and bands on MySpace as well as the large number of digital content creators looking for a way to sell their work.
