Seven Arts Pictures is an independent motion picture production company engaged in developing, financing, producing and licensing theatrical motion pictures with budgets in the range of $2 million to $15 million for exhibition in domestic (i.e., the United States and Canada) and foreign theatrical markets and for subsequent post- theatrical worldwide release in other forms of media, including DVD, home video, pay-per-view, and free television. The Company's endeavor to release many of its motion pictures into wide-theatrical exhibition initially; however, certain of our motion pictures will either receive only a limited theatrical release, or may even be released directly to post theatrical markets, primarily DVD. Those pictures that receive either a limited theatrical release or a post theatrical release typically benefit from lower prints and advertising ("P & A") costs and, in turn, may enjoy greater gross profit margins.

Peter Hoffman - CEO
Peter Hoffman has been our Chief Executive Officer and one of our directors since September 2004 and is also our founder. Under his direction, we and our predecessors have produced and or distributed over thirty features since our inception including: Johnny Mnemonic, Never Talk To Strangers, 9 ½ Weeks II and Shattered Image. As our CEO, his responsibilities include, among others, the selection and production of motion pictures, strategic planning, business development, operations, financial administration, accounting, and reporting to the Board of Directors. Mr. Hoffman was previously President and CEO of Carolco Pictures. He was directly involved at Carolco in the production of a large slate of independent motion pictures, including Terminator 2, Basic Instinct, Total Recall, and Rambo III. Mr. Hoffman is a graduate of the Yale Law School and has participated as a lawyer and executive in numerous financial and tax preferred financings for more than twenty-five years. Mr. Hoffman is the father of Kate Hoffman, our Chief Operating Officer and our Executive Director.
Since 1996, the Company and its predecessors have produced 16 motion pictures (13 of which have been released) and have acquired rights to an additional 28 motion pictures. Ten of these motion pictures are controlled by ContentFilm. As a result, Seven Arts currently has a library of 33 completed motion pictures. Twelve of these 33 motion pictures are controlled by Arrowhead Target Fund Ltd., a former hedge fund investor, which receives all of the revenues from these pictures. A substantial portion of the Company's library revenues are derived from only a few of its library titles. Through a combination of new productions and selected acquisitions, Seven Arts plans to increase its film library to 50 to 75 pictures over the next five years. Strategic Growth
Our recent domestic theatrical releases include Deal (April 2008), Noise (April 2008) and Autopsy (January 2009), all three of which received limited US theatrical releases. We have completed the production of and expect to release for domestic theatrical exhibition three additional motion pictures prior to December 31, 2010, notably The Pool Boys, Nine Miles Down and Night of the Demons. We currently have six motion pictures in development that we anticipate will be released within the next two to three years (i.e., 2011 - 2013) Catwalk, Waxwork, Mortal Armor: The Legend of Galahad, Romeo Spy, The Winter Queen and Neuromancer. Catwalk is expected to commence production in 2010. We may supplement these motion pictures releases with certain lower cost pictures not yet fully developed, as well as with selected third party acquisitions.
• Finance, produce and distribute two to four motion pictures in-house per year with budgets between $2
million and $15 million each. As previously stated, the Company expects that certain of these pictures
will receive only a limited theatrical release, while others will be released more widely.
• Supplement Seven Art's core strategy by producing an occasional higher cost motion picture
(production budgets of $30 - $50 million). The Company will, in all likelihood seek to co-produce
such projects with a major studio to guarantee a studio-wide release and obtain a commitment to
cover a portion or all of P&A costs.
• Opportunistically acquire distribution rights to an additional two to five motion pictures produced
by others, each year, for distribution in theatrical, video and television markets, as an agent, for a
• Maximize the Company's current use of tax-preferred financing structures around the world to
fund motion picture productions.
• Continue to reduce Seven Arts' financial risk on motion pictures produced in-house, by pre-selling certain rights to distributors prior to and during production, while recognizing that, particularly in the last two years, the pre-sale market has become more difficult to access as a film financing tool.Enter into partnerships with theatrical and video distributors, to gain more control over and increase the Company's share of revenue from the distribution of its motion pictures.
• Scale business over time by modestly increasing the number of pictures developed and produced in-house as well as by more aggressively seeking to acquire for distribution motion pictures produced by third parties.
• Management has participated in the production and/or distribution of more than one hundred motion pictures since 1986.
• Seven Arts has relationships with "key talent" and with independent motion picture distributors around the world.
• Innovative financing arrangements are utilized to raise capital for production and distribution of existing/future productions and acquisitions.
• Seven Arts maximum use of tax preferred financing structures around the world. "Tax preferred financings" include refundable or transferable income tax credits available by statute in territories including Louisiana, the United Kingdom, Canada and Hungary, as well as other general tax benefits associated with motion pictures production or distribution in these nations or states.
• Seven Arts avoids the risk of relying on 'blockbuster' receipts from first-run theatrical releases inherent to the major studios by in sourcing its revenue streams through highly established multiple distribution networks for both its own productions and acquired rights.
