IndieFrame is available for free on multiple platforms:
At a larger scale, we want to democratize the media world as it is today. In order to do so, our aim is to give the power and rights back to the content creators themselves. By doing so independent, perhaps even non-biased, perspectives on events and happenings in the world can be made. And stories can be told that would not have been told otherwise. We want to enable everyone to become a smartphone reporter.
User-generated content is already being used by media today but we believe that money made by such content should go directly to the content creator (director, producer, journalist etc.) within the principle of a free market.
IndieFrame is founded by Cecilia Valsted and Lars Brask and is based in Copenhagen. Furthermore, Mikkel Vang is onboard as a communications and social media, and the tech-company Tremend in Bucharest is developing and programing the system.
What content is IndieFrame for?
Within the law, there is no boundaries as to motives shown on IndieFrame. With that being said, sexually explicit and violent content - illegal or not - will be removed. First and foremost, IndieFrame is for news footage and aesthetic content that pleases the eye. Our objectives is to encourage the users to keep the standards as high as possible since that will make it more likely for them to sell the content. Follow us in Facebook if you want to get tips on how to make your IndieFrame content great and sell-able.

Who can use IndieFrame?
Everyone! It is a platform that encourages everyone to become smartphone reporters - and to get paid for it.
How does the pricing work?
It is completely in the hands of the user to set the price on his or hers piece of content. Whether it is $1, $10 or $100. We suggest, however, that users are being realistic when they put on a price tag.
Who has the rights?
The content creator keeps the right at all times. That means that he or she can sell it again. Still, the buyer - if it is a media as well as a private person - gets to use the content as he or she sees fit.
Can I preview the content before I buy it?
Yes. You can see a preview of both photos and videos beforehand. They will have a water mark on them though which will be removed upon purchase. Furthermore, you will only get the content in full quality upon purchase.
Can I find and contact other users?
Sure! In the app and on desktop you can search for users rapidly. You can either search on their name or enter the map and browse persons located in a certain country/city/area.
