The Lionshare, Tracking Torrents and A Girl
« on: December 20, 2009, 10:03:52 pm »
Promoted by The Pirate Bay, isoHunt and many other file-sharing sites, the novel film distribution platform VODO presents its latest release, The Lionshare. The film centers around a fictitious BitTorrent site called The Lionshare, so distributing it through BitTorrent is only natural.

The Lionshare tells the story of Matty and Jane who hook up through OkCupid. During their first date Jane invites Matty to her house, and to her favorite BitTorrent site – ‘The Lionshare.’

“I was interested in making a film that depicted how people actually get their media today,” filmmaker Josh Bernhard told TorrentFreak, as he explained his decision to introduce a fictitious torrent site. “There’s this whole underbelly of community-oriented filesharing sites out there that, as much as DVRs and DVD box sets and 99-cent iTunes singles, has fundamentally changed the way we obtain and experience media.”

“The Lionshare site in the movie felt like a good basis from which to bring up these issues and how they have ramifications for people – consumers and producers of content – in the real word.”

The film is an independent production which was shot for just a few thousand dollars. If anything, it shows that film making is an art where talent can easily compensate for a lack of a multi-million dollar budget. And thanks to BitTorrent, it can be distributed to millions of people at no cost.
