Illegal downloading is a good thing — at least when it comes to pushing INK – Denver News – The Latest Word

​This weekend, INK, a movie shot locally for $250,000 and self-distributed by Double Edge Films, was uploaded to various torrent servers such as the Pirate Bay. In just a few days, the movie has been downloaded nearly half a million times. By Hollywood’s calculations, this is a massive loss of revenue and a tragedy. But for the producers of INK, it’s been a blessing. In the course of three days, the movie has experienced an 83,000 percent increase in popularity on the Internet Movie Database and driven hundreds of visitors to their site, where they’ve wisely set up a means for illegal downloaders who enjoyed the film to donate. We talked to producer Kiowa Winans to get her take on the experience and how it will affect the film — and possibly her future films.
