A new "Criterion"?
A new DVD company appears to have sprung up made up of largely ex-Criterion and Shooting Gallery staff members. Plexifilm have set themselves the task of presenting a number of American and global independent films on special edition DVDs in the same sort of way that Criterion currently do.
Ex-Criterion Director of DVD Development, Sean Anderson, has joined Plexifilm as Vice President. He has been quoted as saying, "the DVD industry is ready for a company that will truly push the technical and creative boundaries of the medium and Plexifilm embodies that approach."
Details on planned discs are currently unavailable, but as soon as any announcements are made I'll post the details here. In the mean time there are a few details on this new company over at their website or you can read the press release announcing their launch here.
