“Bitmax is the perfect partner for High Octane Pictures, as they have great content and we have the technology and expertise to monetize it across VOD platforms.” said Jim Riley, Bitmax CRO. “We love their ethos of putting the film maker first and promoting and distributing compelling independent films.”
