• Why #VODFA has been created ?

 

There are countless web series and short films lost on the internet.

But to find them you must know their names, or by chance, you can come across to them randomly. Because of the cruel lack of visibility in these productions, today VODFA is the solution.

Web-series and short movies also need financial means. Some platforms offer 0,80€ per 1000 views to their content creators. Compared to the average cost of 800€ for a 20 minutes long short movie, it would require a million views to make it profitable… a hard thing to achieve for new creators.

It’s a sad reality that we had to face with FATUM, our first web series. But it is also an everyday problem experienced by directors and creators, whom we had the possibility to meet during our International Web Series Festival #IWFC.
 
From this observation #VODFA was born.
 



  • What is #VODFA ?

 

VODFA is a collaborative platform that gathers original web series and short movies, in order to offer content creators a better visibility and a way to help them in their work.

Content creators have access to an interface that allows them to display their projects in the like of IMDB. Thus, for each project’s page the spectator will be able to :

  • have informations on the content creator and their artistic process

Did you know there is a minimum of 150 French web series ? Webseries we have surveyed:
 
 

91% of them are independent, produced thanks to crowdfundings or with personal finances. 97% are ready to join our platform, and this is only a survey on the French scale !

 

 


Here's a teaser of what our platform will look like.

Simply because it’s not a priority for big broadcasters such as YouTube, Netflix, Amazon…

Their only interest is to offer content without caring about content creators and the promotion of their works. VODFA differentiates itself by offering diffusions, productions and helping the production of these contents.

Short web series et short movies are still underexploited formats, if they are exploited at all.

VODFA is a perfect compromise between Youtube and Netflix for all project creators. Because Netflix is too super-production oriented and because artistic projects are drowned in billions of challenge videos that can be found on Youtube.

 

 

 

Right now, our interaction with movies entertainment is changing, we need instantaneous access and we prefer short formats, accessible in transports, waiting rooms…

We watch more and more videos on demand.

 
 
VODFA will offer formats up to 20 minutes long accessible both online and offline.

The platform’s interface will first be available in French, English and Japanese but will give access to contents in other languages.

During the three following years the platform will be translated in the 10 most spoken languages in the World.
