(New York, NY) February 20, 2013—Oscilloscope Laboratories announced today that it will no longer be distributing feature films via Vine, “a new mobile service that lets you create and share beautiful, short looping videos.” Vine (which was recently acquired by Twitter), launched on January 24th and has quickly become one of the most popular apps in the iTunes App Store. O-Scope, in an unprecedented move, shocked the industry and the nation when they released their upcoming video-on-demand, digital, and theatrical title IT’S A DISASTER on Vine yesterday in hundreds of six second segments.
Always with an eye on groundbreaking initiatives, Oscilloscope’s Minister of Informative Updates, Bruce Farnsworth, said about the failed venture, “From the moment it launched just three short weeks ago, we thought that six-second loops of video, edited in-phone, and posted in real time was and will be the future of film distribution. We were wrong. We were very, very wrong.”
The groundbreaking and trend-setting initiative, which will likely not result in any trends, crashed and burned shortly after its initiation. Oscilloscope, still plans a March 5th digital and VOD release and an April 12th theatrical bow, as was initially planned.
“My bad,” apologetically added Farnsworth. He is now on temporary (paid) administrative leave.
Never ones to shy away from the unknown, Oscilloscope will continue to work on distributing films in all media and by all means and methods now known or hereafter devised, in perpetuity. They continue to acquire distribution rights for the previously unexploited territory of The Moon.
