The Short People at iCast

Netcaster buys indie film site

Netcaster iCast.com has purchased indie film site Shortbuzz.com, increasing its library of shorts by 400 titles.

Shortbuzz was founded last year for filmmakers who want to Netcast shorts without being tied down by an exclusivity agreement with any one Web site.

ICast recently inked a syndication deal with FX skein “The X Show” under which films from the site will be featured on the program.

ICast is in a strategic partnership with AMG under which the two companies will produce content together while AMG will get a first-look deal at talent that appears on the site.

Netcaster was founded by incubator CMGI, which is also funding search engine AltaVista and auction site uBid.com.
