MovieViral is your #1 source for news and analysis of film viral campaigns. What is this “viral” we speak of? Since the boom of the internet and technology in the last decade, it has become easier for studios to find alternative, unique ways to promote their films and television shows. This is done in many ways, with the most popular seeming to be to create websites that are part of the world of that film or show. Have a movie about a biotech company that is secretly creating super soldiers? Create a website for the company and have a protester hack the site to give the audience clues about what they are really doing.


The options are endless, which is where we come in. The staff here at MovieViral scour the World Wide Web in search of websites, clues, and news of viral activities. But we don’t just bring you the news, we analyze it, giving you alternate perspectives, and explaining why what we find is important to the film itself. And we don’t just stop at movies. TV shows and video games are getting into the viral business, and we won’t miss a beat. We’ll also cover the entertainment industry in general, since even we need a viral break sometimes.


But, who are we? Why should you care what we have to say? Nick Butler, owner of MovieViral, has owned and operated several websites, including satirical news sites, and sites that have followed the viral campaigns of past films. Dan Koelsch, Executive Editor for MovieViral, has a Bachelor’s Degree in Radio, TV, Film from Cal State Fullerton with a Minor in Advertising. And of course, all of us here at MovieViral are avid movie fans, and we select our writing staff with care.


What about the news we don’t have a chance to cover? What if you find something yourself or simply have questions about a viral site? Or you just want to talk about pancakes. Well, then the MovieViral forum is the perfect place for you. Just click on the link on top to join!


We are still young, so stay tuned as the website expands and we bring you more features, including podcasts, prizes, and much more. Just like with viral campaigns, the possibilities are endless.
