Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 11, 2012
Imagine the possibilities if a heavy-hitting animation studio such as Pixar joined forces with the social component of a company like Facebook and the gaming aspect of a Zynga. That company could be the next big name to redefine the way consumers worldwide expect to be entertained. Meet Divide Nine, a unique hybrid company where creativity and technology intersect to deliver global entertainment products that do just that, and their first app to hit the market, züm, is causing quite a stir.
Divide Nine’s global products are slated for release on an ongoing basis over the coming years and their first product hit the market on August 9th, 2012 – züm, an iOS video messaging app that is changing the way users create and share video content. Because züm allows users to create 5-second video messages that self-destruct after being viewed, it has opened doors to a new, more casual and “no-regrets” way for users to interact and tell their stories.
In the month since züm’s release, Divide Nine has celebrated success with a number of events in Los Angeles, beginning with a night of züm-tastic fun at TigerHeat for the official launch, and also taking over multiple events at the University of Southern California including one at the 901 Bar & Grill. Now, Divide Nine looks to the future as they kick-off their nationwide züm college tour in early October.
Divide Nine, originally founded in 2008, is built on four key businesses. Its full-length feature animation business brings unique original heart warming stories to life and will take audiences world wide on a journey to places never seen before. The feature animation boasts of a deep pipeline of stories for its slate of feature films to come for a decade and the company will be soon announcing its first feature film.
The company’s vision for other business aligned with its feature animation includes innovative and highly differentiated products in the social games and social technology space. Its the unique synergistic play between its business that lets Divide Nine redefine what it means to be part of Hollywood today - whilst bridging the gap with its global entertainment social technology products between Hollywood and the Silicon Valley tech scene.
Lisa Gopola, the company's Co founder & CFO was the former CFO of Myspace says "Its time to push the frontiers of social technology space beyond the world of text and photos with innovative products that leverage the platforms of pioneers like Facebook and we are well poised to do so."
Krishna Gopala, Chairman and CEO of the company and its founder, was a former senior executive at Philips Electronics and says, “There has never been a company that occupies the unique space that Divide Nine does. I think that by connecting feature animation with games and social technology space in a synergistic way with a rich pipeline of global entertainment products and services for today and tomorrow makes us a company to seriously watch in the coming years.”
