Circle of 8 from Paramount Powered by Flash Platform

Circle of Eight is Paramount Digital Entertainment’s (PDE) original supernatural thriller that premieres today exclusively on MySpace. It is a Web-only movie that was created using the Adobe Flash Platform and Creative Suite 4 software, providing a totally unique interactive experience reaching viewers across operating systems and devices.


Adobe tools and technologies were used in the majority of the workflow stages for both the filmed entertainment and interactive production, including a mobile application and gaming widget. PDE is able to deliver the multiple interactive elements of Circle of Eight to viewers across devices using Adobe Flash Player and Adobe AIR, because of efforts by the Open Screen Project, an industry-wide initiative led by Adobe and supported by PDE and close to 50 other industry leaders, to enable people to engage with rich Internet experiences across any device, anywhere.
