Atom.com (previously AtomFilms) was a broadband entertainment network that featured independent producers’ original short subject movies, cartoons, and web series. Mika Salmi started the firm in Seattle in 1998. Atom Films was backed by Sequoia Capital, which was run by Michael Moritz.

For Oscar winners Jason Reitman, Aardman Animation, and David Lynch, Atom Films was the first internet video outlet. When it partnered with George Lucas and LucasFilm for The Official Star Wars Fan Film Awards in November 2000, it became the first site to cooperate with a major intellectual property rights owner to allow derivative works by the general public.

MTV Networks has transformed Atom Films into Atom.com, a sibling site towards its Humor Central network dedicated to short-form, Web-based comedy, two years following acquiring it.

MTV Networks executives held a press conference on here and on Thursday to celebrate the launch of the new site, of the kind that Executive Vice President of Digital Media Erik Flannigan explained as “our punk-rock label…where you’re purposefully encouraging development that really is supposed to (expletive) with the system as well as break down boundaries.”

Atom.com accepts user-generated submissions in addition to four new original Web series commissioned by Comedy Central, ranging from an animated show about conjoined twins connected there at naughty bits to something like a live-action series about three clueless slackers who attempt to really be militia guards at the US-Mexican border.

Winners will become “pro” content creators on Atom.com, with access to extra Comedy Central resources like a spot on such a new late-night televised programme, Atom TV, a sort of week-in-review special about the site, and winners will become “pro” content creators on Atom.com and have access to additional Comedy Central resources like a spot on such a new late-night televised programme, Atom TV, a sort of week-in-review special about the site.
