Some Girl(s) Film Starring Kristen Bell Will Debut on Vimeo on Demand
If you haven’t heard of Vimeo on Demand yet, you’re definitely going to start hearing about them now.
Vimeo on Demand is going to launch Kristen Bell’s new movie “Some Girl(s)” exclusively on their service the same day as the official launch in theaters. They launched their “pay to view” sevice back in March along SXSW 2013 .
“Some Girl(s)” is the first feature film to go exclusively online with Vimeo’s new service. The release will be day-and-date in theaters and exclusively on Vimeo On Demand and on the film’s website on June 28th.
What is Vimeo On Demand?
Vimeo on Demand is a feature where Vimeo Pro members can sell their movies / clips directly to the public. It makes it much easier for fans to buy work directly from their favorite creators. Vimeo Pro users have access to easy to use tools to make creative and beautiful videos.
Vimeo On Demand – Some Girls Film
Producer and Partner at Leeden Media Patty West commented, “The opportunity to go straight from artist to audience is the future and Vimeo is offering a fantastic new platform. We were inspired by Amanda Palmer and Shane Carruth and of course, one of the stars of our film, Kristen Bell with her $5.7M Kickstarter campaign. These artists are doing it themselves and going directly to their audience. That’s really exciting for filmmakers.”
Some Girl(s) Synopsis
Based on his play by the same name, Neil LaBute’s script follows a successful writer (Adam Brody) who, on the eve of his wedding, travels across the country to meet up with ex-lovers in an attempt to make amends for past relationship transgressions. Crisscrossing from Seattle to Boston, he reunites with high school sweetheart SAM (Jennifer Morrison), sexually free-spirited TYLER (Mia Maestro), married college professor LINDSAY (Emily Watson), his best friend’s little sister REGGIE (Zoe Kazan), and “the one that got away” BOBBI (Kristen Bell). Daisy von Scherler Mayer (PARTY GIRL) directs this journey of a modern-day Candide stumbling through a landscape familiar to most men—messy breakups.
Vimeo on Demand previewed a few movies back in November 2012. Some Girl(s) (Leeden Media) will be the first major movie release to use this service. They want to control the distribution and the marketing. It’s a big step for a service that just came out. Some Girl(s) movie will be released exclusively in theaters and Vimeo on Demand on June 28th.
I am not a big movie goer so Vimeo on Demand would be great for me. Do you think this service will catch on?
