Kevin Smith's "Red State" Profitable?

"Clerks" was the only film I've liked from Kevin Smith.  That being said, with his comic books, low budget films, radio shows, stage appearances and live shows, he's certainly a marketing machine using the vitality of social media to make money.

When he did "Red State" - a horror satire on the Westboro Church - even the Weinstein didn't want to distribute it.  He took it on the road in a 15 city tour.  That tour - before theatrical, VOD, DVD, etc.,  - has, so Kevin Smith claims, brought the film into the black.   The details are fuzzy but it's something to be aware of.

The Future of IPTV

The future of Internet protocol television can be seen in this preliminary introduction to an article.

Global total set top box shipments (including DTT, IPTV (News - Alert), Cable, and Satellite connections) are set to grow from around 177m in 2009 to over 207m in 2014. Global IPTV set top box shipments are expected to grow from 19.4m to 57.5m between 2009-14.

Global Connected TV shipments are set to see huge growth over the coming years, at a CAGR of 58.3% between 2009-14. The Asia-Pacific region is the driving force, with CAGR of over 60% and representing almost half of global shipments by 2014. Although still a small market, the Middle East and Africa will see the fastest growth over the period.


The full article from a research group costs $2875  so it's unlikely that any of us are  going to buy it. However the cost means that there are serious people willing to buy it in the competition will probably be fierce!
