Sell short online and on phone

Digital Distribution Filter: It seems that the video on the internet can be put in two groups - the DIY (low production value) and the "produced" (iTunes, etc.) content. I'm pretty sure DIY content producers don't make any $, whereis "produced" content always needs to recoup. What kind of deals do iTunes or AtomFilms make for independently "produced" short film content, e.g. how much of that $1.99 does Apple keep?

This question is coming from a short film maker reseraching the potential investor return on an independently produced short to be distributed on-line and for mobile devices. Any insight would be helpfull. It seems like there's a boom happening, but what does it mean for the indie? How does that extra source of income affect the ideal budget for a short? How forward looking can I make my forward looking statement ? :]

PS: Also this is in light of the information that Apple is moving into film distribution and Amazon as well.
