IndiePix has announced an almost six-fold increase in unit sales for the full year 2008 compared to 2007. The sale of fiction and non-fiction independent films significantly rose towards the end of 2008 with Q4 sales figures jumping 12 times that of the same period in 2007. During 2008 IndiePix transformed its Internet platform by enabling film fans to choose whether they want to download stream or rent a title straight to their PC or iPod a net distribution technique that is attributed to IndiePix’s strong sales growth. Throughout 2008 IndiePix expanded its efforts to restructure the economics of the independent film industry. Commenting on the many closings and failures among indie film labels Bob Alexander president at IndiePix says They failed because their business models failed—their economics were simply not in line with today's market realities. Trying to be a middle ground player between Hollywood and true independent films is not a good place to be.   IndiePix Studios is soon to release its 2009 production and release slate following the success of its recent films including The End of America which achieved Top 10 opening weekend in New York. IndiePix is now represented across all major online and retail channels as it continues to strengthen its partnerships with like-minded companies such as SnagFilms and iTunes. 2008 really has been an important year in building the new world of independent film ” says Alexander. “Mid-sized companies have failed the do-it-yourself experiment has floundered new forms of digital distribution have been introduced and new platforms – especially the mobile platforms – have gained attention. We're energized to be part of this rapidly developing business and to be pioneering ways to deliver great movies to fans and commercial benefits to filmmakers. IndiePix
