SnagFilms Announces The Debut Of Jon Friedman's Media Matrix And Animation Scoop To Indiewire

NEW YORK, April 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SnagFilms, a website which offers the broadest collection of independent films on demand to viewers, is excited to announce the premiere of two new blogs on their Indiewire.com site, Jon Friedman's Media Matrix and Animation Scoop. SnagFilms is expanding the Indiewire Blog Network, which features leading news and information for independent-minded filmmakers, the film industry and moviegoers. These sites will provide online viewers with an opportunity to receive in-depth coverage focusing on vital news within the media industry and animation world.

Jon Friedman's Media Matrix will provide readers an inside look at the media industry by examining the overall landscape. Jon, who spent over 14 years writing a column called Media Web, which was published by MarketWatch, will be sharing his expert opinion on people, events and trends that help to shape the media industry today. Friedman's vision for Media Matrix is to be provocative, informative and entertaining. His readers will be encouraged to interact with other viewers by commenting on topics and discussing the headlines of the day. Some of the features on the site will include "What Were They Thinking?" and "There Ought to Be a Law", which will create a forum for readers to debate current events in media.

Animation Scoop will feature insight and insider content relating to the world of animation from Jerry Beck, a former studio executive with Nickelodeon Movies & Disney. Jerry will utilize his extensive experience to showcase new aspects of the animation industry unknown to the general public. Beck will be joined by a team of animation experts and writers including: contributing editor Bill Desowitz, a veteran film industry journalist who will take the lead in covering animated features with interviews and behind the scenes details; animation historian Charles Solomon, who will be reviewing new features as well as showcasing manga artists and anime filmmakers; computer animator Floyd Bishop, who will be covering the latest in video games and computer graphic developments; author Greg Ehrbar, who will review DVDs and Blu-ray releases and writer Martin Goodman, who will take a look at new books and TV animation.

"We are very excited to have Jon and Jerry join the Indiewire family with the addition of their new websites," said Rick Allen, SnagFilms CEO.  "With Indiewire expanding its coverage of the entertainment world, Jon and Jerry represent the very best incisive analysis of their respective beats."
