Net Neutrality Essential to Independent Films

We Posted this about Internet Neutrality, and I thought it was poignant!

Net Neutrality Essential to Independent Films

Net Neutrality is essential to the success of independent films like


Having an equal opportunity Internet has allowed almost a million web visitors to find the film and the rag to riches story of Ebbey the canine star.

Telling the eerie story of a handler and her wilderness search dog, the independent production and first time filmmaker Allex Michael have received a tremendous amount of attention via the Internet, including interest from several large theatrical distributors. The film will be completed in 2008.

Unsegregated Internet exposure has also led to incredible collaborations, such as

- Spectacular Film Locations in the National Parks,

- Extensive Product Placement Support,

- Involvement with The Humane Society of the United States Stop Puppy Mills Campaign and

- Technical advice from both Alzheimer's Specialist Kimberly Kelly Falconer and NASAR (National Association for Search and Rescue) Board of Director Ken Lesperance.

Of about 40,000 independent films currently in production, SEARCH DOG'S RAVEN is within the one percentile that will obtain theatrical distribution.

None of this would have been possible for a low budget production without Net Neutrality and toll free Internet exposure.

Please keep in mind how many starving artists and upcoming filmmakers depend on Net Neutrality.
