II. WHAT DO WE DISTRIBUTE

Baker+ will distribute any kind of machinima (Movie/Series filmed inside of a computer game) that meets the above I. Requirements. Baker+ accepts Machinimas from various games including, but not limited to Minecraft, Grand Theft Auto V and many more as long as they meet the requirements. Currently, Baker+ is not looking for solely animated or live-action movies/series, unless the animation is styled as a video game (e.g., “Songs Of War”). The same requirements as above apply.

III. BENEFITS OF HAVING YOUR PRODUCTION ON BAKER+

Having your movie/series shown on Baker+is beneficial to gain more audiences for your movie/series and a certain level of quality is guaranteed for your show. Your show does not drown under the sheer masses of youtube content, but is directly shown to an audience that wants to enjoy machinimas. However, Baker+ does not necessarily stand behind movies/shows or can be hold responsible for movies/series that are not Baker+ Originals or officially affiliated with Baker+.

IV. HOW TO GET YOUR PRODUCTION ON BAKER+

Please make sure that your movie/series meets all the requirements and that your movie/series does not have any errors (e.g. obvious plot holes, spelling mistakes, wrong format, etc.). Fixing errors discovered by the audience and after the fact will only be possible to a certain aspect (loss of statistics/views/ratings may be the result). Baker+ recommends to screen your movie/series to a selected audience before distribution on Baker+ to avoid any future errors/fix requests.

A Baker+ representee will reach out to the provided eMail in the form whether Baker+ considers your movie/series for distribution or not. If your movie/series has not been considered for distribution due to wrong resolution/format or similar quick fixable issues, you may re-submit that movie/series once again with the issue fixed. If it was denied for a reason that is not easily fixable, you may not be able to distribute that movie/series on Baker+ unless the representee informs you otherwise.
