The secret

With so much media interest in movie downloads, conventional streaming video seems to have been overlooked – perhaps because you can’t pop it into a portable device for playback at (or in) your convenience. But compression specialist Vividas still believes in the concept. So much so, that it claims to (possibly) be the first to debut a global pay per view feature length movie over the web. Called The Secret, it’s an Australian production, with (if the trailer is to be believed) has a touch of about it.
Paul Harrington, from Melbourne-based Prime Time Productions, enthuses: “Our movie The Secret reveals an age old mystery known to many of the greatest achievers in history, yet kept from the public at large. Our aim has always been to reveal this knowledge to millions across the planet. We are taking film and television distribution to the leading edge of technology.” Vividas’ CEO, Richard Collins,adds: “Not only is it a first for us but it may well be the first time a full length feature film has premiered online rather than in cinemas or on TV. I believe Vividas technology will enhance the reach, quality and simplicity of the viewing experience.” Those wanting to watch the 95 minute on their desktops will pay $4.95 for the pleasure. It’s also available on DVD. To order a play (or just eyeball the free trailer) head over to www.whatisthesecret.tv.
