Spout brings full length film to YouTube

Spout, an online community for film lovers, announced today they’ve collaborated with the makers of the independent film Four Eyed Monsters to make it available for free through YouTube. This reportedly marks the first ever full length feature film released through the online video Web site.

Spout, with exclusive advertising and a financial commitment to the film’s makers Susan Buice and Arin Crumley, has established a $1 donation to the filmmakers’ next independent project for every new Spout member who signs up at its Web site. Spout sees this YouTube distribution as a step in “creating a grassroots alternative to Hollywood’s promotion and distribution model.”

Four Eyed Monsters, for those unfamiliar with it, apparently “has been causing offline and online buzz with its creative approach and unique filmmaking collaboration.” It premiered at the Slamdance Film Festival and most recently won the Undiscovered Gems Showcase Sundance Channel Audience.

  2. Wow! That’s so awesome! I signed up, twittered about it, tagged it in to put it on my blog via that tag’s RSS feed and then said woo hoo! to the person sitting next to me. Nino, if you had caught this film on the big screen on Valentine’s day at the historic HollyWood Theatre co-op you’d be as excited about this as I am. So glad to read it here though!
