Can I upload online Trailers and Clips for my film?

Add splash to your Online Press Kit with trailers and video clips! Withoutabox offers two, flexible levels of service, FREE and PAID. Read carefully to understand the difference and make an informed decision.

FREE SERVICE - Convenient access to the power of Google Video right from your home base here at Withoutabox. Trailers appear in your Online Press Kit for festival submissions AND they are also made FULLY PUBLIC in the Google Video search engine. An amazing and cost-effective way to promote your film to the world!

PAID SERVICE - A highest quality, more private solution for those who require it, securely hosted at Withoutabox. Trailers appear in your Online Press Kit for festival submissions but they are NOT PUBLIC to the world. Tighter control of your message!

EITHER WAY...
* You can publish any trailer to your own Web site.
* You can publish any trailer to your Audience film page.
* Festivals can publish any trailer to their public programs.
* You can revoke any trailer at any time.

BOTH WAYS...
Choose both services for maximum advantage! Your PAID trailer will be used in the Withoutabox network and your FREE trailer in the Google Video network.
