CURRENT SITUATION

BSEG, its partners, subsidiaries and controlling interests had a strong quarter due to more projects produced and services provided on an international and global level.

The sales and distribution division has films in various stages of distribution in the US for Crimson Winter and Singularity Principle, You Can’t Kill Stephen King for domestic distributionwith Mosquito Man and Hidden Affairs for later in 2015/2016

The production division has signed an option on a new script in development by Taj Jackson, nephew of Michael Jackson, and the Brazilian Sco triplets (Thaisa, Thaina, and Thayana Sco) on a project titled CODE Z. Taj Jackson is also on board to direct. The film is inspired by Taj’s iconic uncle, Michael Jackson’s number one selling album of all time, THRILLER.

On the production front, BSEG anticipates being able to begin its first Sino-U.S. co-production, Snow White - Adventure in China, with a budget of $15 million USD.

The Company also signed a Term Sheet for the Jules Verne project 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea with K7 Global. Development of the project is underway with Chinese investors.

The company is in the process of restructuring, and has formed a holding company, Big Screen Holdings, to manage the many divisions and separate entities of the Big Screen brand. Fairfax Entertainment Group (“FEG”) is a US multimedia entertainment company, specializing in working with companies to expand their entertainment reach on a global level.

FEG is experienced in corporate finance, mergers and acquisition, and public company development. In 2013, FEG became the biggest Class A Common Stock shareholder of Big Screen Entertainment Group (“BSEG”). Sharing the same goals of growing into a full-service global entertainment group, BSEG and Fairfax Entertainment have been working closely in exploring potential opportunities, especially with the Asian-US entertainment markets. Both companies are working together in expanding the BSEG brand and in global expansion and both controlled by Dr. Jimmy Jiang.

After an internal and external audit, the company has determined that it owed past due amounts from distributors on several films. While some of these accounts receivable have been collected over the last year, there remains a large portion to be collected. In addition, there have been several court judgments that the company has acquired against an individual and a company.

BSEG had three board meetings dated February 20th, March 25, 2015 and May 18th, 2015 to discuss and approve deals in progress, letters of intent, restructuring and new subsidiaries.

Mr. Michael Manasseri and Mr. Stephen Eckelberry resigned from the Board of Directors this past quarter. Both Mr. Manasseri and Mr. Eckelberry are currently working with CEO Kimberley Kates in Big Screen Pictures and are officers in Big Screen Pictures. Their resignation left two BSEG Board seats open and will be filled by two new highly qualified individuals coming into the company in 2016.

Big Screen Entertainment Group has created a new international distribution subsidiary called Big Entertainment International (BEI) that is still in developmental stages. Big Entertainment International (BEI) will be a majority owned subsidiary of Big Screen Entertainment Group which will acquire and distribute films internationally beginning in France. Through several key connections with some of the largest retailers in France, Big Entertainment International will sell Big Screen’s extensive catalogue to the largest retailers in France, as well as all VOD platforms and license to television. The Company recently cleared some major hurdles in setting up offices in France, and, to date, close to 1,000 outlets have been set for distribution in France. The company is currently seeking financing to begin operations.
SALES AND DISTRIBUTION DIVISION
BSEG has acquired various film projects from third parties which we are distributing through our own label domestically and through our new Big Screen Sales division internationally. We receive a distribution fee for our sales in the United States which includes DVD, Blu-Ray, PPV, VOD, Digital Distribution such as iTunes, Amazon.com, Xbox, Playstation, Wii, Netflix, hotels, airlines and numerous new platforms opening up to exhibit movies. We also distribute the films we have produced through Big Screen Distribution, and distribute music projects directly through Big Screen Music and through our relationship with The Orchard, DISH, Amazon as well as BSEG’s direct vendors. 

BSEG has a five-year contract with DISH Network to release our projects for VOD and PPV. BSEG is gearing up to release 6 projects over the next 12 months with DISH. Our titles with DISH are increasing rapidly with the addition of new personnel in assisting BSEG with delivery and distribution. This will increase revenue over the next 12-24 months for the company. In addition to a contract with DISH Network, we also have an extended contract with The Orchard, a leader in digital content that acts as an aggregator for numerous revenue generating platforms.

We acquire film titles, projects, and screenplays from various entertainment companies and individuals. We also develop, produce and distribute film titles and music projects internally through our own facilities. We are subject to then-prevailing market prices for the film titles.
MICHIGAN DIVISION
The company opened a production and distribution division in southeastern Michigan to take advantage of the Michigan Film Incentive program which currently offers a 32% rebate on all Michigan production and distribution expenditures. Michael Manasseri administers our Michigan facilities.
Additionally, the company has forged a partnership with Made In Michigan Entertainment (MIME). MIME is premiere commercial production house in Michigan and produces a significant revenue stream for BSEG

After the international recognition of their homemade indie movie, the Deka Bothers moved to the States, and continue to go back and forth to France where they direct arty avant-garde projects.

They are currently Artists in Residence at Oakland University, MI, where they are helping to build the new Digital Cinema Production Program.

They recently DP'd a national television commercial and they directed the music video Chris Benoit for Insane Clown Posse, one of the most notorious, independent bands in the US.
