Billed as the first feature film created for the Internet "Quantum Project," starring John Cleese of Monty Python fame, Fay Masterson and Stephen Dorff was just released on the website www.SightSound.com. For $3.95 people can download or stream the film for one year allowing multiple viewings. SightSound.com has inked a deal with Miramax to release 12 films via the Internet and if this proves to be successful, don’t be surprised if major studios follow suit and begin offering their films online as well. SightSound.com offers downloadable music

Who says those bigger-than-life sized Apple computer ads on the sides of skyscrapers in Hollywood aren’t working? By cutting distribution costs, these independent films have the potential to really open up film making beyond the few big Hollywood studios. Just as MP3 and Napster are turning the music industry upside down, the Internet will revolutionize the way that we will watch movies.
