Hillary losing does not seem a common denominator here.
My film is a COMEDY that these progressive, unhinged social justice warriors would label as "sexist", promoting "racial stereotypes", "hate speech", topless nudity, glorifies drug use, has abusing language, etc. These people would get triggered over films like Airplane and Kentucky Fried Movie for the same reasons. Big tech is turning into Big Brother. They want to control our lives and they want to control speech. Just watch that Google meeting where they were all sobbing over Hillary Clinton's loss. Then click "news" on Google and search for "Trump". All leftist publications in the search results. Amazon is no different.

Airplane and Kentucky Fried Movie are both on Amazon, so your argument on that falls flat.

The fact that a majority of tech workers are (apparently) liberal is hardly the point here. We could debate why that is, but it's a topic for a different site.

No. That illustrates my point perfectly that they have a DOUBLE STANDARD. Big tech is in bed with Big Hollywood.

I think we will never know the truth behind Amazon purges. A variety of reasons, I expect and all on the lower budgeted film maker. Like all film makers, it is difficult still to locate a streaming platform where ones film can get seen but not for free. I'm experimenting with building a Roku channel right now, but its complex and convoluted even after reading a lot of help files and watching videos, often older and no longer pertinent to the updated process. A lot of it relies on access keys and linking different components together and having a pro account on Vimeo to host ones videos, which I have.

If anyone is interested, I'm using this site to put the package together to upload to Roku.

I'll play and see if I can get it right before putting up any valuable content and trying to get subscribers for it.

I quite enjoyed your film Tainted Love Night of the Incubus. I hope it is doing well.

Thank you. That was my first and I borrowed money which took 5 year to pay back: £15,000.
If you ar indie and low budget, my advice to everyone, don't expect to ever get your money back... sadly. But yes, loads of people watch it. I get 6p or 10 cents approx. from Amazon if they watch to the end. my regards, mol. I started a streaming channel on Vimeo so folks can watch all my films without Amazon asking for censorship, here: https://vimeo.com/ondemand/onviewcinema/

regards

Finished Abduction and enjoyed it too.

The thing about Amazon Video Direct is that the numbers are so vast that you theoretically can be profitably at a one cent per hour compensation rate. There are 100 million Prime subscribers. If ten million people watch a 2 hour film at 6 cents per hour, that's 1.2 million dollars.

You will not get 10 million watching you. Don't be silly. be practical. As you say - theoretical.

The potential is certainly there.

I think you have a lot of untapped revenue to be gained from the two movies of yours that I've seen. Of course, I don't know what you've made so far. But the lack of reviews suggest that you haven't exhausted your viewership. I urge you to revisit your marketing campaigns for these films. If you had not posted links to them, I would not have known about them in all likelihood. I'll elaborate if you want.

I would of course be interested to learn, if you have time?

You should parlay these reviews into more views. Let the reviewers know itís available on Prime See if they will republish or get more reviews to drive in more viewers. I have some other comments but would rather message or email them to you since they negative in nature. Don't be modest.

Mol Smith wrote this independent U.K. made film with a cast that are nothing more then enjoyable to watch.

I won't say too much about the film as it has to be seen in its entirety to enjoy. I will say that the script, the imagery and the music go well together to form a movie that you won't forget any time soon.

https://www.thehorrorzine.com/Review...intedLove.html

Tainted Love is a good film and I would like to see more from the maker. It's such a shame that this film is not on the festival circuit or shown on the Horror Channel, which would have been a perfect fit. It is most definitely better than many independent horror films that get immediate DVD releases, as well as the countess stuff that Hollywood manufactures for the multiplex crowd. A must-see film!
