Talk Theatre – http://yourtalktheatre.appspot.com

TalkTheatre is a service that allows independent filmmakers to obtain detailed, granular feedback data from a varied demographic audience for their works in progress. Through the TalkTheatre website, indie filmmakers can issue private screenings to limited audiences. These viewers are encouraged to give detailed feedback on all aspects of the video. This feedback can then be used by the filmmaker to determine which parts of the film/clip resonated with the audience and influence post-production decisions.
