Power of Independence
Many people believe that the best thing that can happen to a filmmaker is when their film is playing on Netflix or Amazon. But in most cases, working for the big streaming companies means they give away their intellectual property. They will never know how many people watch the film. They will never make any money with their film anymore. Plus, people who do not own a subscription will never be able to watch the film.
With the film on platforms like iTunes or Google Play, filmmakers aren't much better off, because all those companies take up to 50% of the price for providing the technical service, but they do nothing else for you. All the marketing and promotion are left with the filmmaker, but the profits go to the platforms.
We don’t like that. We want MAD HEIDI to be available for everybody (with a credit card, of course). We want the profits to go to the people who really deserve it: the investors and creators, not global corporations. That's why we release MAD HEIDI globally on the same day on our website with subtitles in many different languages.
We believe that if people want to see MAD HEIDI, they will also do it on madheidi.com. Like this, we can increase profits up to 6 times compared to traditional distribution. That’s the power of independence.
Mad Heidi will be available on various standard platforms as well, but only after a few months following the release. All revenue from the film is directly distributed to our 538 fan investors from 19 countries.
