Headzup Entertainment has teamed up with GoLeft.tv to deliver Headzup™ editorial cartoons to Internet and mobile audiences. "Headzup and GoLeft.tv are about encouraging social dialog on important events and issues; collaborating with the likes of Mike Papantonio and Bobby Kennedy Jr. is a tremendous boost to our innovative form of content," said John Shay, the founder of Headzup Entertainment. "As the world's first editorial cartoon produced specifically for video-enabled cell phones, Headzup is pioneering a new form of mobile entertainment called Catch and Release Comedy™."
"Catch and Release Comedy uses person-to-person file sharing to distribute popular content across cellular networks. Headzup does this by producing ultra-tiny video clips that can be downloaded and shared freely as picture messages between cell phones," said Shay. "Users CATCH a clip when someone sends them a headzup; they can then choose to RELEASE the clip back into the wild by forwarding it to others. Fans can even add a personal text message each time they forward a clip. Clips in the wild have an unlimited life span as they continuously traverse the globe passing from cell phone to cell phone."
Under the terms of the content distribution agreement, Headzup will be featured as a partner channel on the GoLeft.tv website. "Headzup represents an entirely new breed of editorial content," said Mike Papantonio of GoLeft.tv and Air America Radio Network. "We're very excited to be working with them to help shed fresh light on events and issues important to Americans and the world. It will be interesting to watch the impact of Headzup mobile editorial cartoons on the 2008 elections."
