Sex, Language, Violence, Drugs & Alcohol, Nudity. These are the five dimensions of the Cinevee content rating system – but how do the ratings work? Where do they come from? What happens when you disagree?
The Filmmaker’s Perspective
When designing the Cinevee content ratings, we decided to let filmmakers rate the content of their own films. There are some standard film rating systems out there, like the MPAA single-letter ratings we are all familiar with. The challenge with these standard ratings is that it costs the filmmaker to wait and receive that rating for their film.
Letting filmmakers rate their own films also means that we are not imposing our worldview of what acceptable content is. One person’s ‘mild’ level of language, for example, is another person’s upper limit. The content rating is from the filmmaker’s perspective. It’s their job to tell you what kind of content is in their film.
We’re happy to announce you can now embed your film trailers in other sites using Cinevee. This will let you easily direct traffic to Cinevee and lead to more sales. Here’s how it works.
We’ve recently published an update to Cinevee that we think you’ll be excited about. Some of the new features:
- Embed your film trailer in other websites
- View sales and traffic analytics for your film and store
- Add closed captions and subtitles to your film
- Easily add and manage downloadable files for your film
- Rate your film with the Cinevee content rating system
- Fans can share films on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google +, and StumbleUpon
We will be talking about each of these features more specifically in the coming days. Let us know what you think about the changes @Cinevee, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How is Cinevee video delivered? The story starts with a filmmaker uploading video to the Cinevee website. Hopefully the resumable upload process helps that along. Then the video is encoded into several formats for delivery – from small low-bandwidth files to beautiful high-quality HD video. The video is backed up several hundred times at datacenters around the world.
