“Now it’s sooner rather than later,” he said.
If you’ve never heard ofBond, it’s not surprising ― if you search for it, you’ll get an overwhelming amount of links of where to watch James Bond films. It’s a service that, according to an interview onWired, aims to connect video creators with audiences via crowdfunding and investing.
