All The World’s a Stage . . . there is more to mediAm than TV & Movies
At mediAm we believe that documentary films are more than a genre of “Entertainment”. Our research shows that there is a huge market for informative non-fiction content. This is why documentaries have their own prominent category on our site.
If your are a documentarian we want your content. Your title will be searchable by topic as well a host of other keywords and phrases. With our compilation and kiosk features you will have the tools you need to get your work discovered.
Education & Instruction
Whether you are an instructor, educator or an educational institution your lectures and lessons have an eager worldwide audience. On mediAm we believe that Education and Instructional content should be marketed and monetized so we accept most content designed to help people learn.
Everything from tuba lessons to yoga instruction — dog training methods to quantum physics lectures. If you have produced your material professionally then we welcome you to mediAm.
Our 8 tab presentation page enables you to upload written course material, photographs and other documents designed to help supplement your curriculum.
Our detailed tracking system helps facilitate profit sharing agreements between educators and videographers.
Concert & Performance
Visual recording of live performance and cultural content has a vast untapped market. In many cases the performance, lighting, audio and intellectual property rights are already in place — all that is needed is great photography and superb editing!
Rock & roll, opera, live theatre, or dance — if you can arrange a legal agreement with the performance company then we will accept your work.
Our 8 tab presentation page can work like an album cover or a concert program. It enables you to upload background material, photographs, links and a biography.
Our detailed tracking system helps facilitate profit sharing agreements between performers and videographers.

Film students and aspiring amateurs – mediAm wants to lend a hand
Kick-starting the Future
At mediAm we believe in honouring the past while investing in the future. If you are starting out in film, or have specialized content to market that may not be suitable for the library, you can use our private delivery system and set up a kiosk page for your title. We recommend that:
You upload and format your content but distribute it privately — at least for now. You will still be able to exploit all of the features of mediAm through a centrally-branded mediAm library with each title having its own distribution URL.
You promote, promote and then promote some more! Use the mediAm tools as well as social media to get the word out about your project. Encourage friends, family, students and colleagues to support your efforts.
You have your school register as a provider — this will give your entire graduating class the ability to cut their teeth at media distribution and promotion.
You take the mediAm challenge — use mediAm to compete with fellow film students or even other schools! If you think your content is great — then prove it — by renting or selling the most copies of your content. And if your school is agreeable, keep the funds for next year’s tuition — or help fund your first serious post-graduate project. Good luck to all and may the best person or institution win!
