Vidshadow.com will produce two scenes in the film, No Place Like Home, that will feature the site and its content, and it will create an innovative online marketing campaign that seeks to build an audience and find a distributor for the film.
The deal is a potentially groundbreaking one for video-sharing sites, independent film and integrated marketing partnerships.
The indie comedy Home is being produced by Wayne Rice (Dude, Where's My Car) and was written and directed by Sam Harper, who wrote and co-wrote Just Married and Cheaper by the Dozen. It's about a father (DeVito) who in order to enjoy his retirement takes drastic measures to get his twentysomething slacker sons to move out and fend for themselves.
As part of the marketing campaign for the film, producers from Vidshadow will create 12 weekly video segments featuring footage shot during each week of filming. The segments will include interviews with talent and behind-the-scenes footage on how the movie was made, all captured by a Vidshadow crew that will shoot daily b-roll.
Starting the first week of September, the Home videos will be featured on a specially created microsite on Vidshadow.com as well as on 16,200 other Web sites that are part of Vidshadow's syndication network. Vidshadow CEO Jordan Hudgens said the goal is to have more than 10 million people view the content before the movie opens in hopes that the hype will help secure a distribution partner. »

But Monjack, who faces a court hearing about his future in America in July and could be kicked out of the country, insists his reputation is being tarnished by people jealous of his success. He tells American publication Us, "Like all businessmen, I have faced many lawsuits. It is a real tragedy that success, greed, envy and celebrity are the motivation for attacking my family and character." Monjack's lawyer claims all cases against his client have either been dismissed, are settled or are being resolved. He also expects the arrest warrants to be dropped. »
- After having read Chuck Palahniuk's latest novel, Rant - An Oral Biography of Buster Casey, I feel dirty. I feel used. I feel manipulated. And then I feel silly for being surprised at how I feel. After all, it is a Chuck Palahniuk novel, right? Should anybody be surprised at being surprised by one of his books? Especially after seven previous novels, beginning with 1996's Fight Club, that do anything but walk the straight and narrow.What's most interesting about Rant is the format Palahniuk uses to convey the fictional story of one Buster 'Rant' Casey, who may or may not be the most prolific murderer (albeit through highly original means) in the history of the world. Rant is written as an oral history, basically using quotes from other characters relating anecdotes and observations about Rant Casey after his supposed death in a car crash. In the case of Rant Casey, »
