Film & Television
MMEG’s film and television division is responsible for producing a range of unique content, including feature films, documentaries and reality television. The company’s current lineup of projects includes the Dale Earnhardt Reality Show, The Dennis Gile Quarterback Academy, and a reality television show focusing on ARCA Truck Racing Series. Also within this division is Financial Equity Film Partners, Inc., the project financing arm of MMEG.
The Dale Earnhardt Reality Show
Filming started on October 16, 2015, for The Adventure of Bobby Dale Earnhardt, Chasing a NASCAR Legacy. Chronicling the daily life of Bobby Dale, the first grandson of NASCAR great Dale Earnhardt Sr., the show will present an intimate look at the grind of becoming a NASCAR driver and what it takes to claim the coveted ‘NASCAR Championship’ title.
Being an Earnhardt doesn't bother Bobby Dale - he is proud of his famous name and wants to be the next to carry on the legacy his grandfather started. What he doesn't like is the preferential treatment that comes with being an Earnhardt. If Bobby Dale is going to make it as a driver, he wants it to be because of his ability behind the wheel, not his lineage. Instead of getting help from his family, Bobby Dale is working as a cook at a fast-food restaurant while struggling his way up to a NASCAR status! The Earnhardt Advantage
- *A current Internet podcast by an Earnhardt family member has more listeners than Duck Dynasty and The Kardashians, according to USA Today.
*Dale Earnhardt, Sr. is the top selling deceased celebrity in the world.
*Bobby Dale has more than 80,000 followers on Facebook.
*The Earnhardt family has more than 2 million followers.
*ARCA Truck Racing states that its website visits increase by 5 times when there is news on Bobby Dale.
*Bobby Dale’s uncle, Dale, Jr., is the most popular driver in the world’s most popular spectator sport, according to NASCAR.
*The Earnhardt's are the most popular family in sports - anything “Earnhardt” attracts large audiences, according to USA Today and the Auto Racing Club of America.
Dennis Gile Quarterback Academy
Many athletes dream of being America’s top quarterback and will do whatever it takes to climb to those heights. Former NFL player and renowned coach Dennis Gile trains the country’s elite quarterbacks and gives them the tools they need to step-up their game and reach their goals. Getting into athletes’ heads, Gile pushes quarterbacks beyond their physical and mental limits. Gile’s goal is not just to develop his athlete’s throwing talents, but also to "make them better husbands, better fathers and better men" by pushing them past their highest expectations in every area.
Gile has successfully coached thousands of young quarterbacks in his career, including Notre Dame's Malik Zaire and the NFL’s Tim Tebow, Tom Brady, Cam Newton, and Colin Kaepernick. Gile’s current roster of quarterbacks includes Zaire, Newton and Kaepernick, as well as Kyle Allen, Brett Hundley and Tyrod Taylor. This documentary-style reality TV series follows a group of talented young men as they train under Gile to become the best athletes they can possibly be.
ARCA Truck Racing
MMEG recently signed talent agreements with ARCA Truck Racing (www.ARCATruckRacing.com) owners Robbin Slaughter and Tom Cumbow, adding additional power to the company’s sports racing-themed reality TV series.
The ARCA Truck Series (ATS), which began in 1999, is based in Millersport, Ohio. ATS has completed six full seasons under a licensing agreement with the Automobile Racing Club of America (ARCA), and
has grown into one of the most versatile in short track racing.
As veteran racing drivers, Slaughter and Cumbow have first-hand knowledge of the grit, persistence and skill it takes for a driver and team to compete in an auto racing series. Through their agreement with MMEG, Slaughter, Cumbow and the ARCA Truck Racing team will deliver this unique view into the action-packed sport of truck racing.

FEFP will have its own international sales agency, enabling the company to capture greater economics of selling films into the international market and greater access to information on international distributors.
Music 1 Corp.
Music 1 Corp. (www.music1.biz/index.html
), a Nevada corporation, will take lead in organizing and operating MMEG’s concert events business. MMEG engaged South Florida live venue entrepreneur Charlie Rodriguez, of Charlie Rodriguez Live Entertainment
), as president of the Music 1.
Rodriguez has been active in the business since the mid-1980s, and has promoted and produced concerts in South Florida, drawing as many as 15,000 people to a single event. With his expertise, MMEG plans to provide entertainment to a segment of the population that has been underserved.
While MMEG is pursuing an aggressive business plan through vertical growth opportunities, both in its primary markets and in satellite markets, the formation of Music 1 and appointment of its president supplements the company's ongoing organic growth efforts.
As MMEG’s recording division, Momentous Music (www.momentousmusic.com
) records, produces and distributes various contemporary, faith and gospel musical talents through worldwide distribution channels, raising its business profile as a global player and delivering consistent quality musical content.

Direct Marketing & Retail
MMEG’s marketing division is responsible for the public sales of the film and recording produced by the company’s other divisions, with an occasional joint venture to sell content produced on behalf of others.
The company will leverage its network of experts in the fields of music, film and TV to incorporate the latest delivery technologies and the most innovative sales and distribution strategies to deliver sales-driven content directly to consumers. Direct Response Market
MMEG’s marketing strategy focuses on direct response TV (DRTV) and Internet advertising to promote consumer merchandise, including the company’s own music, TV and film productions. Additionally, the availability of worldwide distribution channels will allow MMEG’s marketing team to build low-cost databases of thousands of customers the company can use as a foundation to create markets for both new and ancillary products.
According to the Direct Marketing Association, total sales from DRTV reached almost $400B in 2014, showing clear signs of sustainable growth. Television infomercials integrated into strong Internet advertising and promotion campaigns will be MMEG’s prototype for direct response marketing. This model encourages customers to purchase products directly from TV or Internet ads, thereby generating an immediate, sustainable cash flow for the company.
Based on the continuing success of established direct marketing companies, as well as the expertise of its management team, MMEG plans to capture a significant part of the DRTV market with innovative marketing techniques implemented by team of direct marketing experts. MMEG also plans to form joint ventures with companies with potentially successful product lines that can benefit from MMEG’s branding and marketing expertise or established distribution channels.
Acquisitions and mergers are an important strategy as MMEG expands its capabilities and customer base to improve profit-generating revenue. The company's roll-up strategy includes plans to acquire small cable systems, radio and television stations, and technologies to be used in the development of a portal that will stream MMEG's radio and television holdings, as well as allow the sale and download of music, video and other IP owned and marketed by the company. Growth through Acquisition
Acquisition can help MMEG rapidly accomplish its overarching business strategies when the acquiring company or companies provide customers, technology and/or production facilities.
The company believes it can rapidly grow through acquisition, immediately absorbing new customers and new sources of revenue. Additionally, rather than spending time creating new technologies, processes or skills, MMEG can quickly integrate and leverage those functions from the acquired company. MMEG is currently evaluating several potential acquisition targets within its business platform and in support of its business platform.
Each of MMEG's corporate officers brings a unique blend of leadership, vision, experience and creative energy necessary to fulfill these strategies. With more than a century of combined experience in entertainment and marketing, this team has set MMEG on track to achieve its goals and make major contributions to the global entertainment industry.
