Video: ‘Downloaded’ (Napster Documentary) Trailer

 

Remember that captivating film released a while back called The Social Network? You know, the one about Facebook. The one where Justin Timberlake (our boy is on a roll here with the last post) played a rather debonaire Shawn Fanning, the founder of Napster. After witnessing the alarming charisma of this Shawn Fanning character, weren’t you like, “Damn. I wish they could make a movie like this about Napster, too.” Well! Your wish has been answered. Sorta.

While not a reality based film with professional actors, this upcoming Napster documentary entitled Downloaded appears just as enticing with real world accounts from Shawn Fanning himself, musicians, and other industry insiders. Music lovers will get to see just exactly how this platform revolutionized music and placed a lasting mark on society and politics forever.

Look for it to drop on VH1 (hopefully) soon. Air date is still TBA.

High fives to the lovely folks at Okayplayer for sharing.
