We started Omeleto because we know the struggles of filmmaking. You spend a lot of time and money making your short. Then you can spend nearly as much on film festivals -- submission fees and travel expenses add up! And there's no guarantee of acceptance, much less getting the attention of the programmers or industry people who attend festivals. Putting films online isn't a matter of "If you build it, they will come." Your film competes with millions of other videos, tweets, pics, status updates, and notifications. Viewers can easily click away. So how do you stand out from the endless stream of content?
