Commencing Oct 1, the new platform will enable Facebook viewers to watch Kris Hulbert and Randy Kent’s horror feature as a seven-day rental for $5.
Monique Parent, Felissa Rose, Will Robertson, Andrea Vahl, Chris Raab, Jonathan Tiersten and John Philbin star in the anthology of three stories chronicling the horrific history of a young couple’s dream house.
Prior to October, the filmmakers will take The Perfect House on a 30-city tour.
“We see a great opportunity to help these filmmakers get their films seen by offering this powerful transactional VOD distribution platform,” FlickLaunch co-founder and CEO Craig Tanner said.
“As soon as FlickLaunch announced their video platform during our post-production, I immediately saw we were in a special position and the value to release our film in this new distribution model was enormous,” Hulbert added.
To take advantage of the service, filmmakers must download the FlickLaunch player and application. The film is uploaded to the Facebook fanpage and the filmmaker uses the LIKE button to determine the number of free views.
Once the preset LIKE allocation is exhausted, viewers can use Paypal to complete the transaction.
