Rounding Up a Year on Slated

Shortly before we break for the holidays and before the run-up to our one year anniversary at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, we'd like to share some success metrics to illustrate what a stellar first year it's been.

Over our first year, we saw 10 films complete financing. In addition, 7 films were accepted at major festivals (Toronto '12 & Sundance '13). And we won't forget to mention HBO's acquisition of CASTING BY and the SHOWTIME acquisition of ROMAN POLANSKI: ODD MAN OUT.Some of these member successes have been a direct result from being listed on Slated. And those were entirely thanks to you, our incredibly vibrant community of 2,200 filmmakers, investors, producers, sales agents and countless others who all took the chance to make it possible on this new online marketplace. THANK YOU.We also thought it might be helpful for you to get a sense of all the activity you've created by highlighting some key data points:NEW MEMBER APPLICATION STATS
