I have no way of placing my movies on this site. I worked really hard on the movie and was lookin forward to putting it on here. I run 56k and i don't have a place send alamdv the video seeing as how my web hoster is too small to place large avi's on my homepage. I'm trying to release a movie called Agent 8 kinda a 007 thing but very different. So some help would be awsome... just tell me how you guys manage and i would appreciate that much! THNX in advance!

what i suggest is that u break it down into parts
like part1 part2 part3 and make each under 5mb
and register a few accounts on www.geocities.com

You can also try www.geekshelf.com . They have free webhosting for files. You can't put a website on there, but you can post a film there for free. I would definatly reccomend having several parts of the movie avalible to download separatly. Tyr it out, and if that won't work well... you can ask again. crazy
PS: My film "Fett vs. Rancor" on this site is hosted by geekshelf, so I can reccomend it.

Make sure you compress it well. Most ISPs give you a few megs of web space which is enough for a decent clip. If you put it on geocities then we wont be able to put it in the cinema because they dont allow linking. Lots of people use geekshelf now, but it is pretty slow

razz I am sure I am speeking out of turn here but you could burn it to CD/DVD and send it to some who can upload or even send it to ALAM, redface Couldn't you? Would they accept a DVD? and if so where would you send it? would they post it for you or is that a big ole can of worms? I guess I have more questions than answers sorry????????????? redface

Sorry, but due to the huge bandwidth requirements we dont host movies ourselves, we simply link to them. So you really need to find a site that will accept large files if you want it in the cinema
