Big Stage Inks Another Partnership, With Splash News
Los Angeles-based Big Stage Entertainment has inked its third partnership of the week, saying yesterday that it has tied into Splash News, a provider of celebrity news and photos. Big Stage, which develops virtual 3D avatar technology, said that the agreement allows consumers to put their 3-D avatars into celebrity photos from Splash News, both on the Big Stage web site and at partner web sites. The firm said the partnership will allow consumers to put themselves into photos with stars like Britney Spears, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, and Shaquille O’Neal, and embed those photos into things like Facebook, MySpace, and the web. It's been a big partnership announcement week for Big Stage, which launched a third party API Wednesday and also signed on virutal worlds provider The Venue Network and video game firm GGL Global Gaming as partners this week.
