Blogumentary for Free Online, a Smart Move

I haven’t watched it yet, but independent filmmaker and blogger Chuck Olsen has uploaded his entire Blogumentary to Google Video for free.

As Jason Scott notes (towards the end of the post), here’s a guy who gets that getting his film done and out there for people to see, however and whenever, may very well be more valuable than waiting around to get it into film festivals or on the big screen.

Not that you shouldn’t want to make some money off your efforts, or at least make back your costs. But as much of the copyright and Creative Commons arguments have pointed out, sharing and making a living aren’t mutually exclusive. And maybe sharing will open up your work to far more people than who would have ever seen it at a film festival or other big-name event.
