BSEG has had a busy and productive year. The company has been working on the WW2 film, THE BOMBING in a marketing, post-production and servicing capacity for the US and International release. BSEG is working closely with Hollywood International Film Exchange to complete this epic war movie. The film was shot and produced in China. BSEG has assisted in bringing the film to the US and International.
BSEG/HiFex Chairman released theatrically the animated film by Buena Vista, “OZZY” for Greater China distribution. Two more films are scheduled for theatrical release Dr. Jiang was involved in as the bridge between the studios and China theatrical distribution, “DEATH WISH” and “PAPILLON,” both to be released last quarter 2018.
The company is in the process of restructuring, and has formed a holding company, BSEG 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. A new website was launched for BSEG Holdings https://bsegholdings.com covering BSEG Capital, BSEG Media, BSEG Pictures. 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 is owed past due amounts from distributors on several films. While some of these accounts receivable have been collected, 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 January 17, 2017, June 20, 2017 and March 27, 2018 to discuss and approve deals in progress, letters of intent, restructuring of the company, acquisitions for generating revenue and new subsidiaries BSEG is in the process of forming.

The Deka Bros. - Content Creators and Clients

Julien and Ben both received Bachelor Degrees in Cinema Studies at Poitiers University, and while their courses were all about theory and history of Cinema, they formed the artistic collective Les Films de la Lymphe with other local artists.
In this very unique underground artistic context, at the heart of Digital Video revolution, they directed several short pieces, but also enhanced their skills as cinematographers and VFX artists in their friends' productions. Les Films de la Lymphe produced about 60 short films and music videos in the past 12 years, and Ben and Julien were key crew members on every single one.
Moreover the brothers wrote, produced and directed their feature film debut Sodium Babies over a period of 5 years, with a global budget of 25,000€. In the meantime, they started to make a name for themselves in the metal music video industry in Europe.
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.
Ben and Julien recently received the MTV Music Video Award 2012 for Best Visual Effects, for their work on Skrillex's First of the year (Equinox), directed by their friend Tony T. Datis.
