What YouTube, MySpace, and ReverbNation did for independent music artists, Swiss-based Movielocker SA plans to do for independent and semi-professional filmmakers. By providing a secure video hosting platform which ensures total copyright control through digital rights management (DRM) and the ability to upload your videos with multiple payment options, Movielocker gives artists an opportunity to compete on a global level. The concept is clear and dynamic: upload your videos and decide whether you want to give access to them free of charge, for donations (in which case the viewer decides upon the amount), or for an amount that you specify. The benefits are enormous, ranging from name recognition to monetization. With multiple account types to choose from, everyone from the occasional videographer to the more serious filmmaker can opt to take a hobby or passion to the next level. Three levels of accounts are provided to fit everyone’s needs and budget. There are no upfront costs.

A strategic alliance with the George Eastman House to distribute their archive is far beyond a marketing gag. Movielocker also won legendary independent filmmaker Jonas Mekas as a first supporter of their services. Mekas says: "Get a camera and start filming!" To cement its goal to support the independent film community, Movielocker was essential in bringing The George Eastman House to honor Jonas Mekas with an honorary scholar award at a special award ceremony in April 2011.

A first in the market the Movielocker service does not require any upfront costs and is backed up by the most price worthy three layer pricing model.
