Osclloscope, the indie film label Yauch and ex-ThinkFilm executive David Fenkel founded, will start its own direct-mail DVD program. The $150 subscription service, called 'Circle of Trust,' plans to ship a new DVD per month for its next 10 releases one week prior each film's official release to the public. Subscribers will also be able to purchase DVDs from the Oscilloscope catalog at half price.
Similar to Columbia House and direct-mail music clubs of the 1980s, Yauch hopes that 'Circle of Trust' will have that same appeal. "It's kind of like when you're a kid and get a magazine and you don't know exactly what you're going to get, but that's what makes you so excited about it," Yauch told The Hollywood Reporter. "Hopefully we reach that level of harassment."
While there is no word yet on what films will be part of this DVD club, Colin Beavan's environmental documentary 'No Impact Man' and Oren Moverman's military drama, 'The Messenger,' for which Oscilloscope holds the theatrical and DVD rights, may be some of the titles stated for the program.
