Almost 20 Years Ago This Was Released.... One of the first viral videos...
405 is a three-minute film released in June 2000. It was produced by Bruce Branit and Jeremy Hunt on a US$300
budget, using significantly self-taught skills with personal computers.
As the first short film to have become widely distributed on the
Internet, 405 is also one of the first, if not the first, viral videos.
It immediately became notable as an early example of the revolution in
digital filmmaking and the use of broadband Internet as a channel to
distribute media, and the results rival that of many major film and
television production studios at the time.
