Film Debuts on Internet Demand System

EMediaWire has a press release from Stephen Mitchell announcing the debut of his new film "Point of Departure." The newsworthy part of the story is that it debuted on Akimbo, a video-on-demand system. Akimbo is presently available on Windows Media PCs or through a special black-box player (technically it's grey.) The network's library definitely shows they're shooting for the early adopter demographic, with programming like Cartoon Network's Adult Swim.

"Point of Departure" is a thriller involving an elicit couple in modern Europe. Mitchell wrote, produced and directed the film through his production company Cineparis. It looks like it was shot on video, keeping the digital theme going. It's not going to win any awards for cinematography, but it's a start. --Terrence Ryan
