That was fun, and i can't believe that guy is sick and claiming welfare cheques, because he looks fit and healthy to me.
However what i find amazing is your 15,000 views!!! How did you manage that?
Do you have a secret method of promoting your film?
05-31-2006, 03:12 PM
No secret. I just sent them my DVD Compilation V.1. I didn't even know it was up, until someone at work said they saw it on the front page. My suspicion is, that someone that works there liked it and got it featured. So my only advice, make a good movie and whore yourself appropriatly. Glad you liked it.
My only complaint, my credit info is missing. And they took off the uPressplay animation at the beginning. Thanks for the props iFilm.

No i saw your credit at the end "Tyler Clapp" unless your going to tell me thats not you?
Also having a good film on the ifilm front page probably explains why you have over 15,000 views. You know i uploaded a film on ifilm also this May and i have struggled to get a mere 81 views. Pitiful is it not?

Eddie, Tyler is one of my friends and peers. My name is Matthew Jones. I'm the president at uPressplay. I helped finish and market Tyler's movies. I forgot he had worked on Caleb's Cube. I was referencing no links or profile information attached to media within iFilm. ie no traffic to our site or work. It's kind of lame, but I don't mind shutting up for 15,000 views of our work. On Caleb's, I did the final mastering and title design. Along with the marketing and graphics.
