Working Stiff full-length feature now online, no charge

An independent feature I wrote and directed a few years back. The whole thing is now online, on Vimeo, for free. The Providence Journal, among others, liked it, calling "a clever sex farce that tickles the funny bone right from its double entendre title."

Won some festival awards, too.

Don't feel like renting a Hollywood flick tonight? Watch "Working Stiff"!

Great job Greg! Try Createspace.com and indieflix.com - two companies that will sell your DVDs for you. I have used both with equal success. All the best!

Thank you, Sareesh. Did you find it complicated getting your works launched with either service? And do they give you an added benefit when it comes to marketing and promotions, or does that all fall on you?

Also -- and I direct this to anyone -- isn't it still mostly a pipe dream to think you can make any appreciable income from films online?

I didn't find it complicated at all. The major issue is getting your master DVD right, and following their guidelines strictly.

They don't market your films for you. You have to do that yourself. But the positive is you don't have to create an inventory. They will do that for you and you just need to hyperlink your 'Buy' button to their websites. Createspace sells on amazon, so it's much safer from the customer's point of view.

Making income online (or in any other form for that matter) depends on how well you do your homework. Have you heard of Iron Sky?
