Vimeo Announces its First Original Series: ‘High Maintenance’

VimeoLast month, we wrote about Vimeo’s first foray into original content when Joss Whedon made the surprise announcement that his latest film, ‘In Your Eyes,’ would be distributed exclusively through Vimeo On Demand.

At the time, we asked Vimeo’s General Manager of Audience Networks, Greg Clayman, whether the company intends to pursue more exlusive distribution rights to films or TV shows. “In 2013 we started experimenting with title acquisitions, but recently unveiled a $10M fund to accelerate our investment in bringing quality individual titles and catalogs suited to Vimeo’s unique audience to our VOD platform,” Clayman responded.

Vimeo today announced the first project that will receive at least part of the $10 million. Six new episodes of ‘High Maintenance’ – a web series from the husband-and-wife team Katja Blichfeld and Ben Sinclair that centers on a nameless cannabis dealer as he makes deliveries – will be financed by Vimeo and launch exclusively on Vimeo On Demand.

The 13-episode series first debuted on Vimeo last year, and viewers can catch up on the series for free at https://vimeo.com/channels/highmaintenance. The six new episodes are set to debut later this year. Read more

Vimeo’s First Original-Content Splash: Joss Whedon’s ‘In Your Eyes’

inyoureyesJoss Whedon‘s latest film ‘In Your Eyes’ premiered Sunday night at the Tribeca Film Festival. For those not lucky enough to score a seat to the premiere, the wait to see the film will not be long. In fact, a digital rental is available now for $5.00 at inyoureyesmovie.com.

Based on Whedon’s loyal fanbase, it is almost a safe bet that a major studio would have picked up the film. Still, Whedon has surely seen the success that Louis C.K. has had premiering yearly stand-up specials via his own website and the appetite that audiences have for alternate distribution methods.

Vimeo is powering ‘In Your Eyes‘ via its Vimeo On Demand platform, and the film has been translated into Spanish, German, Portuguese, French, and Japanese for the worldwide release. Read more
