Whedon Releases Movie For Digital Download
Avengers director Joss Whedon is releasing a movie he wrote as a $5 (£3) download, bypassing the usual channels of independent film distribution.
The movie, a supernatural romance called In Your Eyes, premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York.
The director and writer announced after the premiere that the film will be immediately released online via Vimeo On Demand and InYourEyesMovie.com.
Whedon wrote and produced the movie, which stars Zoe Kazan and Michael Stahl-David, while Brin Hill directed it.
Whedon, who made his name with Buffy The Vampire Slayer, has experimented previously with digital releases.
His 2008 miniseries Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog was among the first high-profile Web series.
He is currently is working on the Avengers sequel Age Of Ultron, to be released next year.
