In case you haven't heard, AtomFilms (which was acquired by MTV Networks earlier this year) has just relaunched their popular video site. We're big fans of the new lay-out and more importantly, Atom was one of the first sites to distribute Double Agent videos! Can you believe they've been in the on-line video game since 1999? The new site has a bigger player, a high resolution viewing option and downloadable content for playback on iPods and PSPs.
Be sure to check out the pilot episode of the creepy horror-comedy series 'Hellholes, funded and developed by AtomFilms Studio and created by filmmakers Kyle Rankin and Efram Potelle. It's pretty hilarious and the special effects are cool. It tells the story of a hapless dork who buys a mobile home for one dollar, and then finds that it's a gateway to Hell. Rankin and Potelle have worked with AtomFilms on multiple projects since the 2002 debut of their feature film, The Battle of Shaker Heights (produced through HBO's Project Greenlight program).
Also just launched is a new Comedy Central channel, featuring episodes from several Comedy Central web shows, including the new hits 'Good God, set in the Man Upstairs' heavenly office, and Baxter & McGuire, about a pair of buddies who just happen to be testicles.
