Who knew a 45° pizza could be so hot? I drew this a while ago, animated in the name of the VHX pizza party / hack day today!
When we launched VHX, we never imagined we’d get to work with creators like Kevin Spacey, Dave Grohl, Ira Glass, and Aziz Ansari.
We’ve been in private beta the last two years, helping distribute feature films, documentaries, TV shows, comedy specials, concerts, lectures and more. We’ve helped launch Camp Takota, Upstream Color, Mistaken for Strangers, the Oscar-nominated The Act of Killing, and many more. VHX now has over 300 titles available for sale, over $3M in gross transactions, and almost 500,000 customers worldwide.
And we are so excited for our next moves.
VHX is now open to the public. Anyone can sign up and start selling immediately. Our internet-video-shaped doors are wide open: https://vhx.tv
We are lowering our pricing. VHX is free to sign up and use, and we charge just 10% + $0.50 per transaction (down from 15-20%). No extra charges for credit card processing or anything – that’s everything. Transparency? Transparency. If you’re an existing publisher this pricing will be effective as of March 1st.
Anything that used to be sold on DVD can be sold on VHX. Our platform works for a lot more than just film and TV. Faith, fitness, lifestyle, education…the list goes on. VHX also works for organizations both big and small: individuals, distributors, studios, networks, and more. Make a site to sell your work, distribute your project, and own the relationship with your audience. VHX is the technology platform that lets you run your own iTunes or Netflix. Your digital copies replace the old physical, anywhere in the world.
It should be easy to sell your work, anywhere on the web. Now you can embed VHX on any website and make purchasing your film (or any kind of video) easier than ever.
Try it out on Indie Game: The Movie by clicking Watch Now button. It’s a quick path to conversion that’s secure, easy, and looks all kinds of good.
Sneak peek alert! We made something cool for our filmmakers. More info coming soon.
We’ve said it before: the hardest part about selling your movie online isn’t convincing people to pay for it, it’s getting people to know it exists. What’s the trick? Make it ubiquitous.
Our stats have shown that offering your video on multiple platforms, including your own website, leads to…
St. Vincent - Neutered Fruit
I’m very late to this album, but I really love it.
I want cinema to be like a mirror, that reflects the audience, so we see ourselves on the screen. Sometimes people might not want to look at that, because it’s not particularly attractive. But we have to look at it in order to move on, to engage with where we are, to reflect on what we are and alter what might happen.
