Right Angle Studios founder Jon Fitzgerald and design industry veteran Bobby Chang have launched the entertainment company BackNine Studios aimed at creating inspirational stories for global audiences.

Backed by angel funding, the partners are looking for further investment and have lined up their first three projects under the BackNine Entertainment production arm: environmental thriller The Last Gasp, comedy Serendipity Green , and the comedy drama Match Made In Heaven.

Fitzgerald said sales and distribution will be handled on a project-by-project basis and is aiming to start production in early 2010.

BackNine Studios comprises BackNine Cinema, an online destination with the goal of setting up online festivals, and talent incubator BackNine Front.
