Company Summary

We are pioneering the development of global branded avatars. Digicon Media has created VM2, the Virtual Marilyn Monroe©, who will mesmerize global audiences and establish herself as an internationally recognized, interactive "digital" personality, contributing to and participating in the global popular culture. We are described as a start-up, although we introduced VMM in 1996 and SONY paid us 100K for her first (and only) personal appearance.
