Whedon releases film as download

Avengers director Joss Whedon is releasing a film he wrote as a 5 dollar digital download, bypassing the normal channels of independent film distribution.

In a video announcement following the premiere of the supernatural romance In Your Eyes at the Tribeca Film Festival, Whedon said the film will immediately be released online via Vimeo On Demand and InYourEyesMovie.com.

The film stars Zoe Kazan and Michael Stahl-David. Whedon wrote and produced it.

The release will be the second for Whedon's "micro studio" Bellwether Productions, following last year's adaptation of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing.

Whedon has experimented previously with digital releases. His 2008 miniseries Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog was among the first high-profile web series.

Whedon is curently working on the Avengers sequel Age of Ultron, which is due to be released next year.
