Eveo gives ‘first look’ to AtomFilms

Net film aggregator makes rights, distrib pact

HOLLYWOOD — Eveo announced a pact with AtomFilms on Tuesday that would give the Netcaster “first look” rights to license and distribute content submitted to Eveo.

San Francisco-based Eveo aggregates short films online, with the promise that anything within the bounds of good taste will be posted. Filmmakers are then paid by the number of times the short is downloaded.

“We’re so pleased to be partnering with AtomFilms on this initiative,” said Eveo founder and CEO Olivier Zitoun. “Now Eveo’s talented filmmakers can have their work seen by an even larger worldwide audience.”

In addition, Seattle-based AtomFilms has the option to syndicate the shorts culled from Eveo to a variety of media, including HBO, Continental Airlines and Microsoft’s wireless device, the PocketPC.

“Eveo has created a great broadband venue for user-generated video,” said Matt Hulett, chief marketing and online officer for AtomFilms. “They are truly emerging as a wonderful incubator for fresh, raw talent.”

According to Zitoun, there are more than 1,000 films available for download at Eveo. The Netco offers tools online for aspiring filmmakers to create digital works. In April announced it closed a $15 million round of venture capital funding.
