Congratulations to Katrina Channells and Bridget O’Shea from We Are Yarn on launching Stingray Sisters exclusively on the Spondo platform. This stunning 3 part series has been described by Mamamia’s Belinda Jepsen as the “one Australian reality series you should watch”.
The series gives audiences unparalleled access to life in a remote Aboriginal community, told through the lens of three contemporary twenty-something sisters. Born to an Aboriginal mother and Caucasian father, daughters Noni, Alice and Grace are navigating their twenties while moving between two cultures and two homes. Together they are educating their community on the perils of fracking and leading the fight against oil and gas exploration in Arnhem Land.
Stingray Sisters is another perfect case study of the power of the Spondo platform. Not only is Spondo streaming the series from the producer’s dedicated site, it’s available for sale from several affiliated websites including The Wilderness Society, Lock The Gate Alliance and Seed, Australia’s first indigenous youth led climate network.
Many films like Stingray Sisters have a potential audience that congregates on relatively large sites. It makes sense for filmmakers to leverage off those sites. The site owner is often looking for engaging content, not to mention additional revenue sources. Viewers are happy to purchase a film endorsed by a site they know and trust, more so if the site can share in the revenue and continue to pursue common objectives. Spondo’s platform automatically tracks the sale of each film, giving the site owner a revenue share for sales made from their site. It’s incentivised crowd distribution and really is a win-win situation.
Check out the sites below where Stingray Sisters is available.
We’re incredibly excited to announce that Spondo is partnering with Pozible, one of the world’s largest crowdfunding platforms. Spondo will deliver a white label version of our streaming platform for Pozible’s latest venture “Screen Connect”. With a projected start date later this year, Spondo and Pozible will take incentivised crowd distribution of films to another level.
Pozible has raised $45m in pledges for over 10,000 projects, including nearly $7m for more than 2,000 film projects. Spondo’s streaming platform will enable films to be sold and viewed directly from the Pozible project page and from the filmmaker’s site. Crowd distributors such as fans and bloggers will also be given the opportunity to sell those films from their own site in return for a monetary reward.
The Spondo platform will facilitate the sale and streaming of each film, track the site from which it is sold and distribute a share of the revenue to all the relevant parties.
