Vivid Animation Stops Production

Jeff Lotman, CEO of Vivid Animation and Virtual Celebrity Productions,

announced that the company has closed operations. "Vivid, which had just

completed its first commercial project, for MasterCard, will no longer

accept commercial projects," said Lotman who has decided to focus all of

his energies and resources on his two-year-old licensing and merchandising

company Global Icons. "Global Icons is growing faster than I had hoped and

the potential is so great that it demands all of my attention at this

time." Global Icons is a licensing and merchandising company specializing

in promoting classic celebrity and corporate images such as: George Burns

and Gracie Allen, Milton Berle, James Cagney, Bing Crosby, Sammy Davis,

Jr., Marlene Dietrich, Clark Gable, Bob Hope, Burt Lancaster, Carole

Lombard, Vincent Price, Donna Reed, Edward G. Robinson and Natalie Wood.

Lotman plans to develop animated programs through Bird Dog Productions,

which recently sold a live-action film to New Line, entitled TO ERR IS
