"Our partnerships with all of these media platforms is what will enable so many people to have access to these films," said FilmBuff CEO Janet Brown. "The strategic distribution of content is as important as the content itself and reflects the rapidly growing market for on-demand video. The fact that anyone with Internet access could see any one of the films right off the bat is huge."
Morgan Spurlock, We the Economy executive producer, added: "We're confident these films will engage such a huge audience in a way that the subject matter hasn't done before. We'll be looking at the ROE, or what we like to think of as the 'return on education.'"
