New DVD Photo Product Puts Children in their Favorite Shows
Lucidiom Inc. is bringing a selection of animated DVD titles to photofinishing retailers. These Animated Specialty DVD products take your child's photo and incorporate it into the movie, allowing your child to become the star of the show.
The animated DVD movies can be customized with your child's photo, so that it looks like your child is one of the main characters. For instance, with the new ability to order animated DVDs from Lucidiom APMs (Automated Photo Machines), consumers can create a video which features their child's face as they help Santa foil Jack Frost's plan to ruin Christmas. The Christmas theme video, "My Christmas Adventure," developed by Sentimental Journeys Inc., features their child in a winter wonderland of magic and fun, where they snowboard, dance, pilot an airplane, and fly with Santa.
"These animated DVDs make great gifts, and we're bringing a good range of titles to photo retailers right as the holiday selling season launches into full gear," said Stephen Giordano Jr., president of Lucidiom Inc. "Kids love watching themselves in these movies, and retailers gain another premium, high-margin product for their stores."
Lucidiom is offering this new product capability with no up-front charges to its APM retailers. Retailers are charged a fee each time a DVD is ordered. The child's photo is sent out via the APM's Internet connection and the DVD is mailed back to the store. There are eight videos available and additional titles to come in 2008. Descriptions of each of the videos can be found on Lucidiom's website at:
