One Response to “ABOUT THE FELLOWS”

  1. Jim Missall says:

    This inquiry is about the possibility of forming a partnership between our company’s.

    Pro-Lites (d.b.a Digital Theatrics) is a start up enterprise that produces cutting edge entertainment by combining a digital cinematic experience, while retaining traditional performing arts with live actors, in front of an audience. This experimental art form actually breaks up a film / theatrical performance between 2 script’s; one for the live stage thespian, the other for prerecorded actors. Everything is synchronized using a redundant video server, which can produce Hollywood style CGI matte effects upon playback.

    Shows such as “Star Wars” or “Honey I Shrunk the Kids”, that were only possible in film format, can now be performed in front of a live audience without loosing any media content! This new, disruptive, art form; is the logical compilation between both industries. Virtual actors are totally indistinguishable from live actors to an audience viewing 30 ‘ away from the stage.

    We believe that this technology is the future wave of an emerging industry, and would like to partnership with a visionary production company. If you feel this is good addition to your portfolio, please contact us to schedule further correspondence.

    Best,
    Jim Missall
