Los Angeles, CA, February 18, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- The 3-D process employed in Safety Geeks: 3D will not be the traditional red and blue glasses techniques dating back to the 1950's, but instead it will take advantage of the cutting edge stereoscopic processing similar to that used in a certain wildly successful sci-fi feature film.
Safety Geeks: 3D is one of the first live action comedy series to be presented in 3D available streaming for the web, as part of computer 3D media software, VOD and even traditional media on next generation 3D televisions, computers, and hand held devices as an addition to any company's new libraries of 3D specific content.
Tom Konkle, one of the writers and producers of the series says, "The modular nature of our show allows the original eleven web series episodes to play well for platforms like mobile and web video while the one hour "movie version" lends itself to big screen home entertainment systems." David Beeler, the other producer and writer of the series added, "Our whole team is very excited about the flexibility of our show, it was shot in a manner ideal for the 3D process and now distribution systems have caught up with our show which can meet the current need for programming. There are so many ways that Safety Geeks: 3D can reach the right end users, specifically the audience that actually buys new technology first."
Konkle, who also stars with Beeler, concludes, "Because our show appeals to a Monty Python and Adult Swim sense of humor, it is a great match because the "geek" audience that enjoys this kind of comedy most readily consumes the new technologies as they come onto the marketplace and they have the financial resources to acquire to enjoy all the various new emerging 3D platforms."
Having often joked about how Dave Beeler and Tom Konkle use technology in the service of comedy instead of action or science fiction, it seemed only appropriate that the way Safety Geeks season one was shot made it the perfect first candidate for 3D technology.
Safety Geeks: 3D's Los Angeles based production company, Pith-e Productions is already fielding offers, distribution agreements and revenue opportunities for the series from 3D media platforms.
Look for both season one followed by season two of Safety Geeks: 3D on 3D distribution portals this year.
To see episodes of Safety Geeks: SVI the first season in it's original 2D format, a special screening is happening this Friday at Cinespace Hollywood on Friday, February 19 from 7 to 9:30p.m. The event is being held for voting members of the International Academy of Web TV (IAWTV) who are in the process of selecting nominees for the 2nd Annual Streamy Awards which will take place in Los Angeles on April 11, 2010.
