files/pictures/picture-35.jpgPhil Roman Entertainment, Inc. (PRE) has entered into a three-year, non-exclusive strategic alliance with the C-3D Television Network and the 3D.com Virtual Reality Portal Website, divisions of Chequemate International. The new agreement follows on the heels of PRE's president, Phil Roman's appointment to C-3D's advisory board. The partnership calls for both companies to jointly seek, develop, produce, promote, market and distribute animation and live-action programming for the C-3D Television Network and the 3D.com Virtual Reality Portal Website. C-3D Television utilizes cutting-edge technology to deliver three-dimensional images. Viewing these three-dimensional images requires a synchronous driver, such as the C-3D Channel Player, and a pair of LCD glasses. "All of us at Phil Roman Entertainment are excited about our new association with the young and energetic management team at C-3D," said Roman. "It is important for an independent producer to be aligned with a broadcaster, such as C-3D, who is capable of giving us a home for our shows. We see this alliance as a new way of creating content that is unique and distinctive; a new way of using the latest technology to push the limits of animation and live-action. C-3D's ability to deliver three-dimensional images brings an entirely new set of possibilities to the creative process. And animation especially lends itself beautifully to this 3D stereoscopic technology. We are dedicated to creating distinctive and fun animation and live-action programming that families can enjoy together." J. Michael Heil, chairman and CEO of C-3D Digital, said, "Our new association with Phil Roman Entertainment and the presence of the highly respected and talented Phil Roman on our Advisory Board is yet another stride in delivering the most unique and entertaining television and Internet programming to millions of families around the world. The real value in C-3D comes from our ability to blend cutting-edge technology with content that is unavailable anywhere else. Phil Roman's expertise will enable us to deliver more of the creative programming that will increase the value of C-3D to our cable affiliates and our television and online viewers." Roman, a six-time Emmy winner, formed PRE last year, after departing Film Roman, a company he founded fourteen years earlier. Currently, PRE is developing a new animated TV series entitled SOAP ON THE RANGE and three animated versions of the classic RKO films, SINBAD THE SAILOR, BLACKBEARD THE PIRATE and THE FOURTH MUSKETEER.
