Video production company Thinking Bee Productions has announced that it is ceasing regular day to day operations. “I am so proud of what we accomplished these past few years,” says Director / Co-Owner Bill Filipiak. “Our goal was to break new ground, experiment with new technology and provide people a sandbox to play in and we did just that. To all of the people who supported our visions, invited us to play and shared their friendships we are eternally grateful. This is by no means the end, rather a new beginning as new adventures await.” Reach Filipiak at [email protected] and co-owner Jo Hunt at [email protected].
Nashville-based Brite Revolution has added an e-commerce component to its existing music discovery site. Artist members can now create onesheets by signing up at www.brite.me. Artist social media properties are integrated along with bio, an embeddable music player, and commerce functions. Participating artists set their own prices, and keep 85% of their revenue.
“With iTunes alone holding more than 28 million songs, our current digital music marketplace is saturated with music content,” said Winn Elliott, CEO and Founder of Brite Revolution. “We quickly realized that there is a clear connection between our successful discovery and curation site and putting money directly in the artists’ pocket.”
