Ranking Online Videos ... Self-Distribution Strategies ... Digital Cinema News from India and China

- The Wall Street Journal has a piece about a Web site called The Internet TV Charts, which attempts to rank the most popular clips on YouTube, Google Video, Digg, and VideoSift each week.

- Via DVGuru, I discovered this story from IFC News about filmmakers with successful self-distribution strategies, including Andrew Bujalski of `Mutual Appreciation,' Sujewa Ekanayake of `Date Number One,' and Lance Weiler of `Head Trauma.'

- From India: `Filmmakers not fully sold on digital'

- A prediction that China will shift from film projection to digital projection within five to 10 years.
