Now Online: Devyn Waitt’s Not Waving But Drowning

Just a quick heads up that Devyn Waitt’s 2012 festival title Not Waving But Drowning, an NYC-set 20something drama starring Adam Driver (Girls) and Vanessa Ray (Pretty Little Liars), has debuted for free on YouTube, playing alongside a short also directed by Waitt, The Most Girl Part of You. It’s an interesting approach to take, as opposed to going the VOD route, and presumably is seen as the simplest and most direct way to connect with the film’s young demographic. And, of course, in contrast with VOD, where the numbers are tightly guarded by distributors, here the filmmakers will have a true and accurate sense of how many people have seen their movie.
