TECHNOLOGY I ENGINEERED LICENSED TO 250 UNIVERSITIES WORLDWIDE DUE TO PARTNERSHIP PROGRAMS

 

BZP PRO SMART SKINNER RIGGING SOFTWARE I AUTHORED BEING USED IN THE COLLEGIATE CLASSROOM AT DEPAUL UNIVERSITY.

 

NOTE: DUE TO SOFTWARE'S "EASE OF USE", SOPHOMORES IN COLLEGE WITH LITTLE TRAINING ARE ABLE TO TECHNICALLY CONSTRUCT CHARACTERS AT THE LEVEL OF INDUSTRIAL LIGHT AND MAGIC AS SEEN IN THESE PHOTOS.

 

NOTE: FACEBOOK LLC, CEO'D BY MARK ZUCKERBERG, WAS AT APPROXIMATELY (FROM WHAT WAS REPORTED) 85 SCHOOLS WHEN THEY RECEIVED A "SERIES A" INVESTMENT. BZP PRO, THROUGH OUR PARTNERSHIP STRATEGY, WAS AT 250 SCHOOLS, HOWEVER, WE DID NOT PURSUE A MAJOR INVESTMENT GIVING UP EQUITY DUE TO THE MULTIPLE FORTUNE 100'S ACQUISITION INTEREST.

ENTREPRENEUR PITCH

 

As someone who can conceptualize a solution to a problem; design a product; animate the feature; technical direct the visual effects; create the coinciding video game; research and implement the biomechanical characteristics of the character design; work with the actors on the set or in motion capture; handle the brand and marketing; handle the customer presentations; automate and write software saving millions in overhead; represent the product in booths at the two biggest conferences in entertainment: siggraph and gdc; license the software globally to six continents; partner with over 250 universities globally; push technology until it is featured on the cover of a worldwide magazine; partner with technology incubators; raise seed capital for a startup; pitch and present to venture capitalists; present to potential interested Fortune 100 acquisition holders; bring the product into customer space via retail design from working at the architecture firm ranked number one in the world; and inspire and lead a team; Brent can generate revenue for your company. Venture capital estimates Brent's value for a game/ animation startup (less than three years in operation) at 4 million dollars (meaning if a startup were worth 5 million dollars and he came on board they would elevate to 9 million dollars). Brent is potentially willing to negotiate billable hours on your project or company for equity, or stock... or by A-list (magazine published/ television published) directors, producers, engineers, or Chief Executive Officers giving a signed letter of recommendation that could be posted on www.brentzorich.com and would lead to other future work or to venture capital. Brent is willing to, if need be, take all content attached to www.brentzorich.com and validate in a court of law via polygraph in order to maintain utmost credibility at all times. Smart Skinner technology is copy protected and encrypted under BZP PRO LLC, where he is Chief Executive Officer. Brent J. Zorich wrote the entire Smart Skinner Technology himself.
