strand.jpgThe first "webisode" of The Strand is officially online. Created by The Blair Witch Project's Dan Myrick and shot verite-style on the Venice Boardwalk, The Strand is a series of "full-length, live-action, independently produced episodic narratives" - each one available for a BitPass digital payment of $.99. It's an ingenious way of utilizing the internet to keep filmmaking independent - as Myrick tells Steve Gallagher, "BitPass enables independent production companies like [ours] to make a show 'for the people, by the people,' where production is sponsored by people who watch it, leaving its destiny in the hands of those who care most about its future." The first episode is free - go get hooked at strandvenice.com.
