Pandora Machine has been around since, I dunno, 2003 or something? The LLC was begat with the movie Pandora Machine which was released by The Asylum(external link).

We make movies. Science-fiction movies. We go to a lot of trouble to make them as good as possible and to actually finish them. That, and to make them cheap. So sometimes "as good as possible" is not "as good as we'd like".
