Sundance Youtube Rental Movies Flop


We reported earlier that 5 Sundance films were going to debut for rent on Youtube starting last Friday, and the results are in….the whole idea was a major FLOP.

It turns out that this new independent distribution outlet is proving to be a less than satisfactory rental outlet. Even with promotion on the youtube site as well as other tech blogs, viewers weren’t willing to part with their money, even at $3.99 a piece. Overall, the 5 films generated less than $6,000 in sales over the weekend with the price not including Youtube’s cut from the deal. Granted, these are indie films that have no major A-List stars in them, but considering the buzz around Sundance and the featured placement on Youtube, the numbers are still low.

SlashFilm has reported the totals as listed below:

1. Bass Ackwards – 308 Views
2. Homewrecker – 308 Views
3. The Cove – 303 Views
4. Children of Invention – 301 Views
5. One Too Many Mornings – 250 Views
