Questions


Who is this for?

Assemble is for filmmakers and distributors who want to ease the headache of creating web assets, building audiences, executing a marketing plan and selling films on the web.

What does it do?

Assemble is clever software that creates and manages your web-presence, gathers and tracks your audience and provides sales mechanisms to sell your film and products - either direct or via any platform. It will build a website, a branded and embeddable trailer, a custom facebook page, a widget and adds a shop and audience gathering features to all of these.

Don't websites and widgets have to be designed?

Assemble is designed to allow you to choose fonts, colours and upload various graphical elements to create a unique and beautiful presence yourself or with your designer. In addition you can send us your poster artwork and we can create a unique custom web presence. There is a one off fee to do this. Please contact us for more details.

Why is this by invite only?

Because we've decided to work with a small handful of films so we can make sure they are all as good as they can be. We'll be slowly opening up the system over the coming months. If you think we should be working with you, drop us an email.

Can I sell downloads & streaming?

Yes, you can sell downloads of the film as a file or stream the film to users for 7 days at a time. We've created a unique 'screening room' that recreates the useful DVD extras to add value to your rental. You can also give away special content in exchange for signups, tweets and likes. You can also integrate this from any of our partner platforms such as Vimeo On Demand or Distrify.

I'm working with a distributor in some countries, can I still use this?

Assemble is made to take full advantage of even the most complicated rights framework. It can handle any combination of Sales Agent, Distributor and Direct Sales across every country in the world.

Can I limit products by territory?

Yes, you can create products, streaming and downloads that are available on a country by country basis.

How does the pricing work?

Assemble is designed to be affordable. We offer a free trial until you are ready to launch your new web presence. Then there is a single one off fee whilst you are in development and production. During this stage you have all the features you need and there is no other fees, no matter how long production takes. Once you've finished production and are off to festivals or starting distribution the website automatically switches on the new features you'll need at this stage. At this point there is a monthly fee.

How old is this?

Assemble (or Moviesparks as it used to be called) was started in 2009. It launched at SXSW in 2010 and we launched our first site (Winnebago Man) on the system in mid 2010.

DO I HAVE TO SIGN A LONG TERM CONTRACT?

No. Assemble is a pay-as-you-go service. There are no long term contracts or commitments on your part. You simply pay month-to-month. If you cancel, you'll be billed for the current month, but you won't be billed again. This doesn't affect your film rights in any way.

IS ASSEMBLE RELIABLE, SECURE, AND CONFIDENTIAL? IS MY DATA SAFE? WHERE IS THE DATA HOSTED?

We utilise Rackspace's cloud infrastructure and storage technology to reliably host our applications. Our video is served by Vimeo's CDN. We take all reasonable precautions to keep your information safe and secure.

WHAT TYPES OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?

Currently we accept Visa and Mastercard via PayPal. We also do not take orders over the phone, accept cheques or purchase orders.

ARE THERE SIGNUP FEES? TERMINATION FEES? ANY HIDDEN FEES?

There are no hidden fees related to Assemble. You can cancel your account at any time.

CAN I INSTALL ASSEMBLE ON MY OWN SERVER?

We don't offer installable versions. We maintain the servers, the security, and all the updates/improvements so you don't have to worry about anything.

DO YOU PROVIDE PHONE SUPPORT?

We provide unlimited support via email for our paying customers, but we don't provide support over the phone. We do our best to respond to every email within just a few hours of receiving it. We do not outsource our support or employ unqualified and unhelpful support staff.
