Press Round-Up On Me Joining Fandor

By Ted Hope

We announced my new job today.  A review of the press yields a cornucopia of juicy tidbits.. um, TEDbits…:

Deadline: “The entrepreneurial for-profit world felt like a perfect transition to refocus myself on the mission to enable change.” http://www.deadline.com/2014/01/ted-hope-takes-ceo-post-at-fandor-subscription-vod-service-for-indie-films/

Filmmaker Magazine: “Our entire film culture remains structured around antiquated concepts of cinema, audience, and engagement.”  http://filmmakermagazine.com/83153-ted-hope-named-ceo-of-fandor

Hollywood Reporter: “Fandor offers film fans better curation and deeper engagement, making ambitious, diverse, and vibrant film culture a sustainable enterprise for all participants.”  http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/ted-hope-ceo-fandor-film-669233

Indiewire: “”I think that across the board the best thing that any of us can do to improve film culture is make sure the artists are directly rewarded financially” http://www.indiewire.com/article/ted-hope-hired-as-new-ceo-of-fandor

Keyframe:

Movie City News: “Ted’s front-line view of how social networks, mass-availability of media content, and the empowerment of audiences change film will assure that Fandor accelerates its pioneering approach to curation and digital content distribution” http://moviecitynews.com/2014/01/fandor-announces-film-vet-ted-hope-as-ceo/

TOH! Thompson On Hollywood: “”It’s appalling that after 120 years in this experiment of cinema we don’t really utilize as an industry and as a culture movies’ most unique aspect, their ability to evoke a shared emotional response amongst strangers. Film has a unique ability to compel people to talk about it afterward. One of its great strengths is one we have to exploit more fully.”  http://blogs.indiewire.com/thompsononhollywood/indie-producer-ted-hope-takes-over-as-fandor-ceo

Turnstyle News: “So what kind of films can you find at Fandor? Well how about a few personal indie favorites? “An Oversimplification of Her Beauty” (2012) and “Bellflower” (2011) are both available on the service. So are sci-fi cult classics like “The Day of the Triffids” (1962) and John Carpenter’s “Dark Star” (1974).” http://turnstylenews.com/2014/01/08/indie-film-producer-ted-hope-announced-as-streaming-video-ceo/

Variety: “Fandor is part of a great systems reboot of this ecosystem, one that is as equally rewarding for the artist and the audience.” http://variety.com/2014/film/news/ted-hope-joins-independent-specialist-fandor-as-ceo-1201037122/

The Wrap: ““With the collapse of producer overhead deals, no producer (other than those that have accumulated or been provided with wealth) is permitted to pursue quality.”Fandor provides Hope an opportunity to benefit the film community in another manner.” http://www.thewrap.com/ted-hope-named-ceo-fandor/

    After I originally left a comment I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now whenever a comment is added I receive four emails with the exact same comment. Perhaps there is a way you can remove me from that service? Kudos!

  9. www / Jan 8 at 3:25pm

    There is certainly a great deal to find out about this subject. I really like all the points you made.

  10. www / Jan 8 at 3:25pm

  14. www / Jan 8 at 3:25pm

    Your style is so unique compared to other folks I have read stuff from. Many thanks for posting when you’ve got the opportunity, Guess I’ll just book mark this page.

  15. www / Jan 8 at 3:25pm

    This is the right site for anyone who would like to find out about this topic. You realize a whole lot its almost tough to argue with you (not that I actually will need to…HaHa). You definitely put a brand new spin on a subject that has been discussed for decades. Wonderful stuff, just excellent!

    Excellent post. I certainly appreciate this site. Keep it up!

  19. www / Jan 8 at 3:25pm

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy I came across this during my hunt for something concerning this.

  20. www / Jan 8 at 3:25pm

    The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesn’t fail me as much as this one. I mean, Yes, it was my choice to read through, however I actually thought you’d have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of moaning about something that you can fix if you were not too busy looking for attention.

  21. www / Jan 8 at 3:25pm

    Right here is the right website for anybody who wishes to understand this topic. You realize so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I really will need to…HaHa). You certainly put a brand new spin on a topic that has been discussed for ages. Excellent stuff, just great!

  22. www / Jan 8 at 3:25pm

    A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment. I believe that you need to publish more on this subject, it may not be a taboo subject but generally folks don’t speak about these issues. To the next! Many thanks!!

  23. www / Jan 8 at 3:25pm

    You are so awesome! I don’t think I’ve truly read anything like this before. So wonderful to discover someone with some genuine thoughts on this topic. Really.. thank you for starting this up. This site is something that’s needed on the internet, someone with a little originality!

  27. www / Jan 8 at 3:25pm

    Next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesn’t fail me just as much as this one. After all, I know it was my choice to read, but I genuinely believed you would have something helpful to talk about. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something you could fix if you weren’t too busy seeking attention.

  28. www / Jan 8 at 3:25pm

    An outstanding share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a coworker who had been conducting a little homework on this. And he in fact bought me breakfast simply because I discovered it for him… lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending time to discuss this topic here on your website.

  29. www / Jan 8 at 3:25pm

  30. www / Jan 8 at 3:25pm

This site could not have been built without the help and insight of Michael Morgenstern. My thanks go out to him.

Help save indie film and give this guy a job in web design or film!
