Netribution

Exploring web culture since 1999.

Wanting to figure out how how the web would help and challenge filmmaking, two friends dropped out of film school to set up Netribution. Two weeks later the dotcom bubble burst, but we continued, kept afloat by making documentaries and writing books. Today we're still focussed on understanding how best to keep independent filmmaking & journalism viable and brilliant post-web.
