Streaming was not possible due to lack of Internet connexion.

However, when the film will be converted into a digital file (WebM or
ogg/theora), why not simply sharing it in peer-to-peer ? It is the most
suitable way to distribute such content, the most adequate to our ideas,
the faster and the most effective.

Then if people are too lazy to install a P2P client, we can still put
the WebM file on a server, and anybody with a browser worthy of the name
will be able to play it without Flash or Javascript.
