May was a big month for Vancouver's MovieSet - an Internet platform that brings behind-the-scenes filmmaking online. Upon returning from a successful trip to the Cannes Film Festival, MovieSet learned that they were the only Canadian company chosen by AlwaysOn to be on the OnHollywood 100 list of Top Private Companies. The OnHollywood 100 is a power list of the top private emerging technology companies in digital entertainment and media. MovieSet was handpicked by the AlwaysOn editorial team based on a set of five criteria--innovation, market potential, customer adoption, media buzz and investor value creation. Investor value must have been a strong point. Word on the street is that MovieSet closed their first tranche of $2 Million on a $5 Million A-round with Rho Capital out of Montreal and NYC.
