Yesterday, I came across “Online parody â€˜MySpace: The Movieâ€™ helps launch amateurâ€™s career,” an AP story that showed up in a lot of places (this link is from the Kansas City Star because it was the one that showed up first in news.google.com). It’s about how a kid– almost literally (he’s 21)– is apparently going to get a film deal based on several movies that he’s made.
Anyway, the one that has gotten all the best press is “MySpace: The Movie,” an 11 or so minute short that is a parody of various MySpace habits. The link here is from the YouTube site because this guy’s web site– David Lehre Productions— is getting about 1.8 million hits a day right now. Oh, and as far as I can tell, this guy is from the ‘burbs of Detroit.
A camcorder, a Macintosh computer, and you’ve got a chance….
