SCIFI.COM PUTS FANS IN THE DIRECTOR'S CHAIR

'Battlestar Galactica Videomaker Toolkit' Puts Fans Behind the Camera

Best Video to be Broadcast on SCI FI

New York, NY � March 6, 2007 � SCIFI.COM, the award-winning Web site of the SCI FI Channel, is putting Battlestar Galactica in the hands of its fans with the launch of the Battlestar Galactica Videomaker Toolkit (www.scifi.com/battlestar/videomaker).

This exclusive SCIFI.COM resource arms fans everything they need to create their own four-minute Galactica shorts. The Toolkit will give them access to 30+ visual effects, 20+ audio effects and even cuts from the soundtrack of the series. Once the fan-videographers complete their masterworks, they can post them back to SCIFI.COM to share with other fans. Fans can check out two hilarious demo videos on the site to get their creative juices flowing.

As an added bonus, Battlestar Galactica Executive Producer David Eick will select his favorite video, and it will be broadcast in its entirety on SCI FI Channel during an episode of Battlestar Galactica at a later date.

Redefining the space opera with its gritty realism, Battlestar Galactica's intensity, issues-driven topicality, and command performances have garnered it unprecedented critical acclaim. In addition to winning a prestigious Peabody Award, the series has been honored as one of the 10 Outstanding Television Programs of the Year by the American Film Institute (AFI) for two years running. Battlestar is also responsible for introducing the expletive "frak" into the pop culture lexicon. Currently in its third original season, the series airs Sunday nights at 10pm on SCI FI.

SCIFI.COM is the world's largest sci-fi entertainment Web site with more than 3 million unique visitors each month. Its award-winning original content ranges from a renowned technology blog and a daily entertainment news service to the SCI FI Pulse broadband network, which serves millions of streams of original video each month. Its tie-ins to SCI FI Channel shows include the hit webisode series Battlestar Galactica: The Resistance, which has been seen more than 6.5 million times, and the first ever TV network podcast.
