Bill Plympton and self-distribution

Self-distributing content is a big thing now, especially with the rise of the internet. However, it's not limited to the world wide web at all. Self-distribution is also possible in other mediums, including movie theaters. It's just alot harder.

That's what Bill Plympton is going to do with his feature film Idiots and Angels. Already a success in making independent short cartoons, two of which received Oscar nominations, he has managed to secure cinema screenings for his film in New York and Los Angeles, two of the most difficult places to get any movies played. And he's writing about it at AWN. Read it here.

Hopefully he can get the film shown in other cities. Where I live, the closest possible places are Memphis and Nashville.
