Two recent graduates of film and new media are determined to use the web as a new distribution window for young filmmakers whose work might otherwise go unseen. Citing the difficulty of cracking the closed ranks of prestigious film festivals by unknown artists, Jason Hatcher and Nolan Dubeau will soon launch Toronto-based Jerkyvision.com, a site featuring the short films of young filmmakers. The site has star potential. The pair’s first attempt to post content attracted so many viewers, it temporarily overloaded their servers, sending the project back to the technical drawing board.
