Why Facebook Watch is a Game Changer for Indie Filmmakers

The online video landscape is changing on a daily basis. The newest gladiator to step into the ring is Facebook. Facebook is launching Facebook Watch, a new “show tab” that will host original shows produced exclusively for Facebook. Considering that Facebook has 1.32 Billion people who come to the site on a daily basis this is a game-changer for filmmakers and content creators.

Facebook Watch will launch with a handful of shows first but they plan to open the platform up to independent filmmakers, production companies, and content creators.  They will also be adding REVENUE SHARE option for all content creators. My sources tell me that the revenue will be higher than YouTube. Many are saying that this could be a YouTube killer, only time will tell. Personally, I don’t think Facebook Watch will kill Youtube but it will injure it for sure.

We are living in an “Attention Economy.” Whoever can command the most attention will be successful. Take a listen to the podcast as I go into a bit more detail about Facebook Watch and how indie filmmakers can use it to build their brand and/or companies.
