MovieRide FX Newsletter No. 7


MovieRide FX is engaged! We're excited to let you know that MovieRide FX has been seeing someone for a while now and they've fallen madly in love.

In fact the MovieRide FX team has accepted a proposal from a US company named FlicJam.

We're hoping for a short engagement, FlicJam is raising money and MovieRide FX has some obligations left to fulfill, but once those things are sorted the happy couple is planning to put down roots in the USA where together they will work with Hollywood movie studios and record companies as well as tech giants like Google, Apple, and Amazon to offer a new way of interacting with movie trailers and movie scenes as well as music videos.

The proposal was developed by our American friend, Andy Milligan and he has since put together an amazing team to help guide FlicJam and MovieRide FX into the future.

Their CFO Bob Armstrong has over 40 years of technology finance executive experience and their CEO John Slitz has 30+ years experience as a CEO and marketing executive working with startups and large companies like Novell and IBM. We're excited about the possibilities this marriage represents and hope to bring you more details soon!
