(July 31, 2000 – Glendale, CA) - Entertaindom.com, the cutting-edge online entertainment network, today launches “Li’l Green Men,” a new Web 3D animated series debuting as one the popular new Pulse productions for Entertaindom.com. “Li’l Green Men” is the first in a new collection of live-action and animated programs available at http://www.entertaindom.com/pulsecomix. Created and produced by Jinx founders Phill Simon and Vinny Carrella, "Li'l Green Men," was incubated by Pulse Entertainment and uses their streaming 3-D technology. The series, one of several co-produced projects planned from Pulse Entertainment for Entertaindom.com, details the adventures of two-inch high alien scouts searching for Earth's weaknesses. Pulse has also created brand new 3D episodes of another would-be intergalactic invader, Marvin the Martian. Entertaindom's 3D "Marvin the Martian" series features five different 3D camera angles (including the "Marvin Cam", "Hover Cam" and "Security Cam") from which the viewer can observe and interact with Marvin's assorted (and aborted) attempts to take on Planet Earth. In addition, Entertaindom is hosting the popular "Pulsebeat" destination site, a showcase area for independent Web programming artists. “The irreverent comedy of ‘Li’l Green Men,’ while being completely contemporary and hip, is in the vein of classic Warner Bros. animation,” said Kevin Tsujihara, Executive Vice President, New Media, Warner Bros. “It’s a great concept, presented with cutting-edge animation, and we are pleased to host it exclusively at Entertaindom.com.” “Li’l Green Men,” has received an initial order of 13 episodes from Entertaindom.com. Creators Carrella and Simon have also produced such successful Internet shows as “The Probert Show” for “Saturday Night Live” and “The Marty Show,” using Pulse Entertainment’s Pulse Creator™ technology. “Entertaindom’s relationship with Jinx represents the next generation of entertainment on the Web,” said Pulse CEO Fred Angelopoulos. “‘Li’l Green Men’ is a perfect example of how our technology showcases the power and quality of 3-D on the Web.” “We’ve been waiting for the market and the technology to develop to the point where it would actually be possible to produce the kind of show we envisioned,” said Carella, CEO, Jinx. “The Pulse technology gives us the look and performance we needed for this project and Entertaindom has been instrumental in helping us to refine it.” “Strong characters and good writing drive great content, and the folks at Entertaindom. understand this,” said Simon, President, Jinx. “Our goal is to produce a lot more original, Jinx-branded content and characters this year. We’re working on several new shows, which we hope to feature on Entertaindom in the near future,” he added.
