AlwaysI.com Goes Platinum With Comic Book Production Deal
AlwaysI.com, an independent content destination Website, has signed a production, development and distribution deal with comic book production company Platinum Studios. As part of the pact, Platinum will have a first look option on all of AlwaysIs independent content for development into feature or TV properties, as well as licensing and merchandising. Platinum has a production deal with Miramax/Dimension Films and owns a portfolio of over 1,000 comic book characters. To start off, Platinum and AlwaysI will develop at least three Webseries to be broadcast on AlwaysI.com and the soon to be launched PlatniumStudios.com. "AlwaysI has helped to fuel the demand for animation by offering animators a community to post their work," said Platniums CEO and chairman Scott Mitchell Rosenburg. "Were pleased to support AlwaysI by using its online library as a resource for discovering new content and talent." Previously as head of Malibu Comics, Rosenburg helped develop MEN IN BLACK for Columbia Pictures and Amblin Entertainment. Recently, FORBES MAGAZINE named AlwaysI as "the best of the best" on the Web for content.
