Netflix picks up a Briefcase

Few things please us more than hearing about a independent project finding success. And it's even more exciting when it's a film or short film we've given some love to here on the site.

Several weeks back we reviewed writer/director Nate Golon's short film Briefcase, a five-minute long story about a mysterious briefcase that gets its handler in a whole world of trouble. It's a well-made ride deserving of praise and notice.

Earlier today we received the following in an email from Nate: Netflix has licensed 'Briefcase' to a two year exclusive deal, for retail use and online. It will not be a film that is a rental, but instead will be used by Netflix has a promotional tool in retail stores worldwide, advertising Netflix as a VOD feature in TVs. They will also probably use portions of the film on the Netflix website.

He goes on to say: "I'm so excited to have the opportunity to license my short film, 'Briefcase,' to Netflix. Netflix is the industry leader, and we are honored to be associated with such a prestigious company."

Hats off to you bro! And best of luck with Briefcase and your future projects. The Basement salutes you!

In case you missed it the first time, here's the film:
