Our Story

We started Omeleto to solve a problem.

Filmmakers spend a lot of time and money making a film, then spend just as much trying to get it seen. Festivals are costly -- registration fees and travel expenses add up. And that's if you get in -- who does your agent know on the selection committee? It's often political...

Then after the run is over, you put your film online. But as Sundance Programmer Mike Plante explains, "If you put your short online the good news is many people can watch it. But the real news is that 10 people will watch it -- even if you are the hottest thing. There is just so much stuff online. Putting something online just isn't enough."

So we had an idea: what if we created a home for the next generation of great filmmakers -- one place that releases award-winning films every day?

Our goal is to give filmmakers the reach that no festival or distributor can offer, on a world stage, in a fair and transparent manner. We're not an agent or a distributor or a middle man. We're a scrappy team of engineers and data scientists with a deep understanding algorithms and analytics. We understand the YouTube and social media landscape and help filmmakers optimize their film for online success.

To do that, we run countless iterations on a film's packaging before launch, then monitor real-time engagement signals -- such as total watch time, audience retention, like-to-dislike ratio, click-through rate and social media shares -- after release and make any adjustments for improvement.

Of course, we can't guarantee every film gets millions of views. But we have a pretty good track record.

If you have a great film and would like to join a critically-acclaimed community of filmmakers, submit it to us for consideration. If you know of a talented filmmaker, please tell them to check us out. Thank you!
