With a masters in computer graphics animation from the New York Institute of Technology in the mid 80′s, Daniel was scouted to work for Digital Effects Inc., one of the first CGI special effects companies in America, working on projects for Disney and other film studios. Some of his credits include The Navigator and Tron, and he has over 40 commercials to his credit during that period. Since 1984, he has worked on projects with such companies as The Mill, AT&T, Time Warner, Disney, Manhattan Advanced Digital, Data Motion Arts and Image Group, to name a few. He has directed and produced many computer graphic commercials and interactive projects for companies and brands such as People Choice Awards”, Rolex, Pizza Hut, CUC International, Vtek Toys, P&G, Revlon, Estee Lauder and CNN News. After this Daniel spent five years in Europe as a media and technology consultant for Pixibox France and Thompson Digital’s military software group.As interactive technologies (web 1.0 ) were developing, Daniel was working on the cutting edge Time Warner interactive trials in the 1990s. Daniel was one of the first individuals to deploy VOD (video on demand) over IP and followed that concept through to the founding of VODUSA where he functioned as the V.P. of Business Development and as an equity partner.

News

Dear Friends, Colleagues & Clients,

We have a few updates. Firstly, the new site for 59 Souls Inc., will hope you like. It represents the whole team’s work and efforts.

Soon will be moving into new areas of product development this year, and will keep every one posted, but we can talk about that later.

What I really wanted to talk about now is a trend we’ve been noticing, and wanted to share and address it. We find many businesses owners (small and large) are having a hard time getting a handle on this web tech stuff. Regardless, all businesses need some form of digital expertise before they can garner web presence.

So here’s what we are going to do: during the next four months, for a nominal fee of $50.00 (for a 1/2 hour of our time), we will answer any of your questions on all CMS software platforms, content tools, media strategies, and how to organize your content. Large or small, get your queries ready. We believe this will help everyone, but it is just the start of what we can offer.

We would like to help educate potential clients or just those wishing to learn something about web development. In addition to our team, we also have partners who will be willing to provide knowledge on specific topics, if 59 Souls is unable to. Think of it as a boot camp, without someone shouting at you.

Branding, and all that goes with it, is another issue. Sure, we have artists, designers and software developers and that’s our area of expertise, but we also bring years of digital experience. Some business owners and start-ups need guidance before they build their identity, one of the most important steps to establishing a footprint in the digital domain.

Everyone wants to get off on the right foot and save time and money.

Email us back at the address below, let’s set up a call. I think we can help.

Hey what’s $50.00 bucks, two Martinis in Soho?

Best,

Daniel A. Johnson
VP Business Development | Chief Creative Officer
