Burbank, CA, June 19, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- At a live press conference held in Santa Monica today, Lumen Actus LLC, demonstrated the first 3D live action comedy web series, “Safety Geeks: 3D” enhancing the viewer experience on 3D polarized computers, televisions, and Blu-ray Disc products. DDD of Santa Monica will be distributing the series via on-demand downloads from their website, Yabazam.com.
Produced by Dave Beeler and Tom Konkle, “Safety Geeks: 3D”, follows the comic adventures of a semi-elite force of safety experts; the P.O.S.H. (Professional Occupational Safety Hazard) team who is obsessed with making the world along with bits of Canada a safer place. The CSI-like team investigates accidents to find out what went wrong and who is to blame, however, their involvement causes far more damage than they prevent, leaving a trail of chaos and destruction in their wake.
"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," said Tom Konkle, “Safety Geeks” writer/producer.
The award winning “Safety Geeks” web series has received accolades and nominations for their creative content and special effects from the Streamy’s, LA Web Series Festival, Stay Tuned TV and more. Beeler and Konkle use technology in the service of comedy instead of action or science fiction, which is why they decided to take “Safety Geeks” season one and make it into 3D. It’s important to point out that the 3D process employed in “Safety Geeks: 3D” is not the traditional red and blue glasses technique dating back to the 1950's, but instead is the cutting edge, polarized stereoscopic processing treatment similar to that used in a certain "wildly successful sci-fi feature film (AKA Avatar)."
David Beeler, “Safety Geeks” writer/producer 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."
“Safety Geeks: 3D” is presented in stereoscopic 3D and is available as streaming video on the web, as part of the 3D media TriDef player, as video on-demand (VOD), and also as traditional media on next generation 3D televisions, computers, and hand held devices.
Konkle and Beeler also star in the series and are quick to point out that their show appeals to the “geek” audiences who are early adopters of technology like the various 3D platforms coming available and enjoy the surreal humor of “Monty Python” and “Adult Swim.”
“Safety Geeks: 3D” is available at http://www.yabazam.com for on-demand download.
