Here at FXhome we like to be on the cutting edge of technology and pop culture, always with an ear to the ground and a finger on the pulse so that we can keep one step ahead of the game. Through our network of spies we recently discovered a couple of fantastic websites, called MySpace and YouTube, which we reckon are really going to hit the big time any day now.

Not wanting to miss out on the action, we decided to take a piece of the pie for ourselves and put the word out on the street...

MySpace

That’s right, there’s finally an FXhome MySpace page! We’ve decided that our MySpace page will show the fun side of FXhome, featuring all the latest office escapades and providing a less formal insight into our everyday schedule. If you want to know what happens behind-the-scenes at FXhome, including exclusive photos and blogs, then myspace.com/fxhome is the place to be.

Click here to check it out!

YouTube

All of our promo video clips can now be found on YouTube, where they can be viewed in special YouTube-O-Vision (ie, really low quality). However, it seems to be a good way of reaching a new audience and we expect there’s a lot of YouTubers that have always wanted to have a lightsword fight.

Click here to view, rate and comment on the FXhome clips!

Magazine advert

More traditionally, we’ve also been working on an advert for the UK press. You can have a sneak peak at it by clicking the image to the left, otherwise you should see it pop up in a few magazines over the next couple of months.

We hope you like it!

What exactly is the word? I reckon its probably "manifold". The best word ever.

If you guys add me in your top friends, I'll spread bulletins to all my friends saying to add you as a friend. How about it? Oh, and I like the MySpace layout, but as a target MySpacer (age 16-20, male) it doesn't draw me in much. Perhaps add some Photoshopped images of the boxes next to their description, you know, something a little bit more engaging. Maybe some more color? I'm ot saying make it as spastically Photoshopped as mine is (you should check mine out), but up the media a little bit maybe.

Thanks for the comments guys! I'm hoping the MySpace page will enable us to show the 'fun' side of what we do as a team day-to-day, while keeping FXhome.com itself focused on our products as well as the FXhome.com community itself.

Ben - I imagine we'll continue to tweak the MySpace page. It's a fairly godawful system to customise, but adding some pics is a good idea. One thing we want to do is avoid the FXhome MySpace page being too corporate or formal - hence we didn't want to overload it with product boxes etc.

Congrats Team FXhome!

(what they haven't told you is that they have been secretly learning French to run for this year's French Presidential Elections. When they get elected they will change the name "France" to "FXhome" and giving cookies and chocolate to all the FXhomers who visit them)

Looks awesome guys. Just one thing though, on the advert EffectsLab is spelled "EffectLab." Where it is is circled: http://img109.imageshack.us/img109/7681/advertlargeed2.jpg

Hey, i just wanted to let Fxhome Team know that the "lightswords" is what's really going to draw most people in. That's the reason I started looking at the products, and obviously in your ad you've taken that into account. It looks awesome. And FXhome is definetly going to my top eight!

Oh, of course, of course, I'm just thinking that a very large block of text may seem a little too corporate for how chock-filled with media most MySpace pages are. I meant incorporate the boxes into some open-form design that's informal and fun. I hate to bring this up again, but if you look at my MySpace, I'm able to state my religious and political views- both serious things- through clever little Photoshoppy buttons here and there.
