(December 5, 2007--December 5, 2007) The first in a series of Party DVDs from stop-motion master PES, The Fireplace is the first and only animated project of its kind to hit the market. No ordinary fireplace, PES' version is made in true PES fashion... with pretzel logs and candy corn.
With just these two simple items, PES has created the impression of a working fireplace that flickers, crackles and glows just like the real thing, but without the messy ashes to shovel.
PES got the idea for his fireplace from the original televised Yule Log, a concept which dates back to 1966 and has become something of a tradition in America. The original televised fireplace featured a loop of a real fireplace and has aired on Christmas day for 45 years.
"The Fireplace is my attempt to reinvent the iconic Yule Log," says PES. "Of all my films, this is my personal favorite. The idea was to make a film that could play for hours in the background at parties, clubs, or even while just lounging around the house," essentially turning your TV from a black box into pop art.
Seeing the massive marketing potential of The Fireplace concept, Music Today, the artist and fan connection specialist (clients: The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Elvis) is handling customer fulfillment for the entire line of Party DVDs.
