The look and feel of Syfy will be reflected in a groundbreaking two-minute brand film, "House of Imagination," that celebrates Syfy's unique spin on imagination, starring talent from Warehouse 13, Eureka, Ghost Hunters, Caprica, Sanctuary, Stargate Universe, and Destination Truth. The film invites viewers into a celebratory house party populated with rooms inspired by the Channel's original programs and characters. Goldfrapp's "Happiness" provides the soundtrack for the trip through the never-ending house where anything can and does happen in each one-of-a-kind room. Through high concept visual storytelling, each scene fuses a bold complement of visual effects with practical set design. "House of Imagination" was designed to be modularly deconstructed into a dynamic, long-running campaign of 10 and 5-second network identifications.

The experience will extend digitally into Syfy.com/ImagineGreater beginning July 7, where visitors will have a rich, fully interactive and immersive experience as guests at the house party. Visitors will be able to explore parallax rooms and to discover exclusive content including games, behind-the-scenes and making-of footage, cast interviews, downloadable wallpaper and much more.

Said Michael Engleman, Vice President, Creative, Syfy, the key architect behind the brand film: "Coming off the most successful year in our 16-year history, we wanted to create a brand film that both celebrates the genre and also feels human, relatable, and wildly creative, highlighting the wide array of casts and character who inhabit Syfy's ever broadening programming landscape. Through this unique creative collaboration, we're honoring and embracing a powerful global brand with deep roots in the popular culture."

"House of Imagination" is produced and directed by the award-winning 4Creative (UK-based) team led by director Brett Foraker, who was joined, specifically for this project, by Larry Fong (Director of Photography, Watchmen, 300) and Tino Schaedler (Production Designer, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, V For Vendetta, The Golden Compass) with visual effects by MPC (Watchmen, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix).

Syfy -- unlike the generic entertainment category "sci-fi" � firmly establishes a uniquely ownable trademark that is portable across all non-linear digital platforms and beyond, from Hulu to iTunes. Syfy also creates an umbrella brand name that can extend into new adjacent businesses under the Syfy Ventures banner, such as Syfy Games, Syfy Films and Syfy Kids.

As the Channel's footprint expands rapidly around the globe, aiming to reach more than 50 international channels by the end of next year, Syfy meets the need of a globally relevant, trademarkable brand that stands for something unique to the brand in each territory.

Syfy is a media destination for imagination-based entertainment. With year round acclaimed original series, events, blockbuster movies, classic science fiction and fantasy programming, a dynamic Web site (www.Syfy.com), and a portfolio of adjacent business (Syfy Ventures), Syfy is a passport to limitless possibilities. Originally launched in 1992 as SCI FI Channel, and currently in 95 million homes, Syfy is a network of NBC Universal, one of the world's leading media and entertainment companies. (Syfy.
