Quibi and Da Vinci

At 10:48 2-21-19, I found this! I had not idea!

Jeffrey Katzenberg is drawing inspiration from Dan Brown’s “The Da Vinci Code” as he puts together his new short-form video company, Quibi.

Speaking alongside Quibi CEO Meg Whitman on Tuesday at Axios’ Smarter Faster Revolution event, Katzenberg said that after reading Brown’s mystery thriller, a light bulb went off in his mind about media consumption. “The Da Vinci Code” has more than 100 chapters, averaging about five pages per chapter, far less than the normal 20 to 40 pages, he said.”

In 1997, I joined several yahoogroups to discuss the ideas that were put forth in the book ‘Holy Blood, Holy Grail’. The authors of this book sued Dan Brown. I have posted on this matter on this blog for over ten years! I am sure my material and study come up in a google search. My divine intuition is right on target! I’m already authoring the next Holy Bloodline book and movie. I have been publishing it on this blog, because it is too long to be one book – or three! I have proven the Templars owned the Shround of Turin after following folks in my Family Tree! I filed some of my study in my sister’s probate, and is one of the reasons I am on people who take any names from my efforts.

Above is a photo of me at work in the Special Material collection at the University of Oregon. Deeper into the wormhole we go!

Lord Ferri apears to be a member of the Ferrette family whom lived in
Rougemont Castle, and from whom the Habsburgs descend. You will find
genealogies with the Rougemont and Ferrette names, interchangable, in
regards to Ulrich and Frederick. I may be descended from the
Rougemonts/Rosemonts who are said members of the Knight Templars.
Here is one of my webpages that is linked to sixteen others.

It’s good to hear from my old chums from Rennes-le-Chateau. Are my
old posts, esponged?

The Da Vinci Code[edit]

The 2003 conspiracy fiction novel The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown makes reference to this book, also liberally using most of the above claims as key plot elements;[8] indeed, in 2005 Baigent and Leigh unsuccessfully sued Brown’s publisher, Random House, for plagiarism, on the grounds that Brown’s book makes extensive use of their research and that one of the characters is named Leigh, has a surname (Teabing) which is an anagram of Baigent, and has a physical description strongly resembling Henry Lincoln. In his novel, Brown also mentions Holy Blood, Holy Grail as an acclaimed international bestseller[15] and claims it as the major contributor to his hypothesis. Perhaps as a result of this mention, the authors (minus Henry Lincoln) of Holy Blood sued Dan Brown for copyright infringement. They claimed that the central framework of their plot had been stolen for the writing of The Da Vinci Code. The claim was overturned by High Court Judge Peter Smith on April 6, 2006, who ruled that “their argument was vague and shifted course during the trial and was always based on a weak foundation.” It was found that the publicity of the trial had significantly boosted sales of Holy Blood (according to figures provided by Nielsen BookScan and Bookseller magazine[16]). The court ruled that, in effect, because it was published as a work of (alleged) history, its premises legally could be freely interpreted in any subsequent fictional work without any copyright infringement.

“This is a list for people interested in the crypto-historical reality of the movement known as the Priory of Sion. They are connected with the 19th century mystery of Rennes-le-Chateau. The group existed, of that small fact we can be sure; but whether it was a surrealist joke enacted by three Frenchmen in the 1950s or a 900 year old secret society pulling the strings of western civilisation is still open to debate. With renewed interest from the millions who have read Dan Brown’s ‘The Da Vinci Code’, along with the millions already familiar with the story through ‘The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail’ this forum exists to encourage rational and non-sensationalist debate.

Topics likely for discussion include, the Templars, the Holy Grail, The Merovingians, the catholic church and the literature surrounding this area of study. New directions welcome, naturally.

Our expectations:
There will be consideration for all members.

Flaming, personal insults, or profanity (of any nature) will not be tolerated

TV venture from Katzenberg and Whitman draws inspiration from Dan Brown’s ‘Da Vinci Code’

  • Jeff Katzenberg and Meg Whitman are focusing their new venture Quibi around serialized short-form content that can be consumed in 10-minute increments.
  • Quibi will draw from “all the major studios” for content, Whitman said at an Axios event on Tuesday.

Jeffrey Katzenberg is drawing inspiration from Dan Brown’s “The Da Vinci Code” as he puts together his new short-form video company, Quibi.

Speaking alongside Quibi CEO Meg Whitman on Tuesday at Axios’ Smarter Faster Revolution event, Katzenberg said that after reading Brown’s mystery thriller, a light bulb went off in his mind about media consumption. “The Da Vinci Code” has more than 100 chapters, averaging about five pages per chapter, far less than the normal 20 to 40 pages, he said.

“Publishers and editors have said to authors, if you don’t want to stop in the middle of a chapter, don’t write them longer,” Katzenberg said, in an interview with Dan Primack of Axios, at the University of California at Los Angeles. “A series for us will be two to three hours in length but comes in breaks or chapters that can be watched on the go.”

Viewers no longer have frequent stretches of 30 to 40 minutes to watch uninterrupted content, even though they consume 70 minutes of short-form content a day, Katzenberg said. They can use moments of downtime to watch chapters of serialized content in shorter increments of 10 minutes or so.

Whitman chimed in, adding that conference attendees had that amount of time before she and Katzenberg took the stage.

“You had 10 minutes,” she said. “It would have been fun to watch Quibi.”

Whitman, the former CEO of eBay and Hewlett-Packard, and Katzenberg, who was chairman of Walt Disney Studios before becoming CEO of DreamWorks Animation, plan to debut Quibi in late 2019. They will use content developed from “all the major studios” to give consumers a service worth paying for, Whitman said.

While Katzenberg acknowledged — somewhat humorously — that success in the venture will be “somewhere between improbable and impossible,” he said that Quibi would be “skating to where the hockey puck is going,” rather than pursuing the type of hour-long television shows that everyone else is chasing.
