Anyone else been watching pioneer 1?  It's a freely distributed series, available as xvid over torrent from vodo.  They take donations, and when they raise a certain amount of cash they release the next episode.  I like the business model, I emailed requesting that they accept donations in bitcoin.  If anyone else thinks that's a good idea why don't you shoot them an email too, and see if we can't get them to embrace bitcoin.  Paying for media distribution and creation, since it is purely virtual goods, seems like an ideal task for bitcoin.

They already accept bitcoin as donation.

And yes, I enjoyed watching the first 2 episodes.

BTW, the name of the show is "Pioneer One". The difference is mainly that you will get a lot more relevant responses if you google that.

I just didn't like Pioneer One, at least not enough to donate but I would recommend Zenith, which is at least technically and artistically superior. Instead of asking every single author, I wish vodo.net accepted bitcoin donations.

Yeah I realized later that they already accept donations, but I didn't know it at first because there is no way to do it through the vodo site.  A simple mybitcoin payment button where the paypal donation buttons are now would do, vodo should at least offer it as an option to the authors.  I'm waiting to see the second part of zenith before I form an opinion on it.  So far the only problems I had with pioneer one were some really bad goofs on the sound editing (for example a minute long sequence or so in episode two where 60 Hz buzz was bleeding in when they recorded).  Given the budget though, it's hard to be too hard on them for that.  Although, "Primer" had a similar budget and was shooting a feature length production on film, so it can be done.

Hard to tell without spoiling.  Let's say it's a SF story about space travel.

BTC donations to this show have been reasonably successful, if we take a look at the blockchain.
