Videoblogger Ze Frank Lands Movie Deal
Ze Frank, whose awesome series of daily two-minute Web videos ended last year, told a New York audience at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater he landed a movie deal with Universal. As NewTeeVee points out, Frank follows in the footsteps of the Ask A Nina guys, who are remaking Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, and the co-founder of HomestarRunner, home to the series "Strong Bad Email," who just landed a deal to direct a movie with the guy from Napoleon Dynamite. It's great to see entrepreneurial videobloggers crossing over into mainstream media, but you have to figure that the blowback from struggling screenwriters and low-level TV and movie producers is going to make all the bitching about blogger book contracts sound positively celebratory. After the jump, two of my favorite Frank videos.
