Steven Soderbergh to Use BitTorrent

Heather Green

At a panel this week at the Tribeca Film Festival with BitTorrent's Ashwin Navin, Todd Wagner of 2929 Entertainment, and Dean Garfield of the MPAA, director Steven Soderbergh said he planned to use BitTorrent to release a short he's doing.

Steven Soderbergh is doing a an High-Def film with the next issue of the DVD quarterly magazine Wholphin, due out in mid-May. No news on the title of the short. It's a small step, but definitely a step for BitTorrent in its efforts to woo Hollywood to use its file sharing technology to distribute to people.

You've mispelled the name of the DVD quarterly. It is spelled Wholphin. That is all.

Finally, I do have something good to comment about BitTorrent. Not every users who use BitTorrent to download (or share) files are touted to be doing something illegal. There are several other uses of BitTorrent as well, and I applaud Steven for moving ahead in time with the technology.

Surely, he should be using YouTube not BitTorrent. BT seems a little fiddly and redundant these days.

Soderbergh is cool.

He is probably one of the few that manage to be new and interesting and are trying things out at the same time he get's to direct big hollywood movies.

He is not always on the edge.

But atleast he is trying.

Soderbergh. I would love to work with you any day!
