Fourth World Media Corporation
Fourth World Media Corporation designs and develops custom applications for all major operating systems and the World Wide Web. Based in downtown Los Angeles, Fourth World offers more than fourteen years' experience developing applications for a variety of industries.

Our background is especially well suited for small and medium businesses who have great ideas for software products they publish commercially, or to build internal tools to assist workflow and cut costs. Specializing in high-level languages allows us to design and deliver efficient, attractive systems for relatively modest budgets.

In recent years a growing interest in multiplatform deployment has provided us with an opportunity to put our experience with HyperCard and SuperCard to work porting projects to Windows and UNIX using rapid-development tools such as Revolution.

Most of our clients have retained us for long-term maintenance and enhancements after we've successfully delivered their project. Several have invited us to assist them in other areas of their businesses as well, including providing customer support services, strategic technology consulting, and building database systems to help manage their growing sales.

    Sons of Thunder

    If you would like to have your projects converted to run under Windows, you should know that Sons of Thunder Software has begun performing platform conversions for our clients. We can either do it all, or assist you in doing it yourself. Conversions are possible to and from SuperCard, HyperCard, MetaCard, ToolBook, Director or Visual Basic (DHTML and other web-based solutions to be added later).

    The basic approach is to have us evaluate your project to determine time/complexity in doing the conversion and identifying possible tradeoffs. After the evaluation, we will provide a cost for either conversion (engineering) or assistance in conversion (consultation), depending on which you prefer. Visit our website for more details.

    Sons of Thunder Software created the HyperCard Converter for Allegiant, and has tons of experience with a wide variety of Macintosh and PC authoring tools.
