The independent film community has received a big boost as IndyTrailers announced that it is launching its new Web site, IndyTrailers.com, a free service that provides a global showcase for independent trailers. IndyTrailers.com will also feature Emmy-award winning host of CBS’ Amazing Race, Phil Keoghan’s new trailer of The Ride. The documentary follows Phil’s amazing journey as he rode his bicycle over 3,500 miles from Los Angeles to New York in 40 days, raising awareness for Multiple Sclerosis and over $500,000 for the National MS Society.
“IndyTrailers hopes to fill an important void by providing a free global showcase service to artists, students and professionals. Each month IndyTrailers plans to highlight a Golden Trailer winner from its library of uploaded/embedded film, webisode and game trailers as well as feature submissions from University film schools giving special recognition to its filmmakers and film students,” said Josh Gottsegen, Co-Founder and President.
Other recently featured trailers include: Falling Awake (Augustine), Fruit Fly (HP Mendoza), Stanley Pickle (Victoria Mather), The Living Wake (Sol Tryon), and Winnebago Man (Ben Steinbauer). Also, A Crack in the Radio (Argus Productions), the controversial “rockumentary” from Afghanistan, captures the emergence of a contemporary music scene in Afghanistan.
IndyTrailers has also partnered up with the 2010 Los Angeles International Short Film Festival, and IndieFlix.com, a hybrid independent distribution company dedicated to bringing indie filmmakers and their fans together. “Working with IndyTrailers has been a fantastic experience. Their team has been on point and made the process easy and enjoyable. We look forward to continuing our relationship with IndyTrailers,” said Ian Dinsmore, IndieFlix.
