Shadowz is a 100% thrilling subscription video on demand (SVOD) offer for fans of genre cinema: made by enthusiasts and for enthusiasts! Published by VOD Factory, Shadowz offers fans a selection of quality films - classics, masterpieces, cult films, little-known nuggets, recent hits - that were previously difficult to find online.

"From the announcement of the project to the launch, the public response to Shadowz has been excellent. This confirms that there is a real place in the entertainment market for niche SVOD offerings aimed at a passionate audience. »
Julien Vin Ramarony, CEO of VOD Factory and publisher of Shadowz

Crowdfunding as a pre-launch tool

In order to test the fans' appetite and to publicize the project, a participatory fundraising campaign was launched a few months before the opening of Shadowz. Gathering several hundred contributors, the operation reached more than 300% of its objective and made it possible to sell nearly a thousand pre-subscriptions, ensuring the launch of the site among a community already committed and mobilized.

Support from industry specialists

From its conception to its release, Shadowz has always enjoyed the support of industry professionals: film critics, directors and influencers have praised the initiative. Genre cinema is often still not very visible in France, particularly on generalist streaming platforms, and before Shadowz it was almost impossible to find a rich offer offering a quality panorama.

The importance of hyperdistribution

Initially launched as a responsive site, Shadowz intends to quickly accelerate its development and broaden its accessibility. The platform is based on the Otto technology developed by VOD Factory and is available in iOs and Android applications. The VOD Factory distribution network will also quickly allow distribution via telephone operators, game consoles or even OTT platforms. Shadowz is also available on the Prime Vidéo website.
