Oliver Cooper to Sell His Movie on Vimeo


By Lucas Shaw

Joss Whedon's decision to sell his latest movie using Vimeo has inspired "Californication" star Oliver Cooper to do the same. "Four Dogs," which Cooper co-wrote and stars in, will be released exclusively on Vimeo June 10.

Set in Hollywood, the movie is about a struggling actor named Oliver who passes his days with a friend from acting school and his aunt's dogs. A friend of his aunt shows up and interrupts their routine of lounging by the pool and cruising around town. It premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival last year.

Cooper wrote the movie with director Joe Burke, who has made more than a dozen shorts over the past few years. Vimeo offers filmmakers the opportunity to release a movie on their own terms with an On Demand service it launched last year.

Filmmakers can select the price and embed the player on various website. People can buy the movie straight from the player. "Four Dogs" will cost $4 to rent and $7 to buy, and is already available for pre-order.
