In a nutshell, we were four guys wanting to make movies. We got tired of seeing great films die on the vine at film festivals because the Hollywood model for Marketing and Distribution is broken. Some of the best stories are lost beneath popcorn-seller flicks, but they’re out there and people–somewhere, someplace–know about them. So, we thought:
If we can make it easy for people to share movies they love with others, the big movie/little movie playing field will be level and really meaningful stories will find their audience.
Boom. There’s Spout. Actually, it was less “boom” and more like countless hours of building, tweaking, breaking and building again… That’s an average week here. But the cause stays the same.
