(businesspress24) - Wonderfilm Announces Operational Update for 2019

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / February 11th, 2019 / The Wonderfilm Media Corporation (TSX-V: WNDR), (OTC PINK: WDRFF), (FRA: 25Y), (Wonderfilm or Company), announced today an operational update for 2019.

2019 Operational Highlights:

Wonderfilm continues to move forward with due diligence and negotiating final terms on the three recently announced acquisitions. The process is proceeding positively toward the Company entering definitive agreements to close the transactions in the very near term. These acquisitions form the foundation of positioning Wonderfilm as a stronger media content creation company able to boast significant new online reach, access to emerging markets and a broadening revenue base.

Partnering with Grapevine Logic represents an evolution of the Companys online marketing reach, offering access to new social media technologies that will further monetize the Companys content creation and create conduits to further monetize the Companys growing library of productions.

Acquiring Starbury Media will expand Wonderfilm into sports and eSports promotion, production and distribution. This step into a fast-growing market segment is enhanced through the Grapevine acquisition and its significant social media reach.

Wonderfilm prepares to launch its own streaming movie channel directly into 100 million homes in the fall of 2019. This is a move that is also burnished though Grapevines online marketing by generating an instant connection to a worldwide genre-film fan base.

Wonderfilm remains on track and is projected to meet the original $100 million production slate of 17 produced films set for the 2019 calendar year.

Expand Core Business - Expand Revenue

Wonderfilm is determined to continue the strategic acquisitions announced that will seamlessly integrate within the Companys core business model, increase shareholder value, build revenue and forge strategic partnerships such as developing Wonderfilms working relationship with billionaire, Bruno Wu.

Acquisitions that Make Good Business Sense:

Grapevine Logic

As previously announced Wonderfilm is entering a strategic partnership with Grapevine Logic, a social media company that currently can reach more than 3 billion followers.

The Grapevine acquisition expands and supports the Companys core business while opening new content monetization opportunities, a marketing bonanza and broadening the Companys business strategy to include emerging technologies and social media applications.

Beyond the strong online marketing upside, a key for Wonderfilm in this exclusive partnership is merchandising and building unique communities for Wonderfilm productions; like its upcoming release, Zombie Tidal Wave (the next incarnation from the Sharknado franchise featuring the same Writer, Director and lead actor). As the partnership solidified, Grapevine will allow Wonderfilm to identify horror and zombie film fans from Grapevines significant followers to start direct communication to build the Companys own fan base. This would occur from the moment the Company begins preparing each films production and genre.

The two Companies will blend their strengths with Wonderfilm casting popular Grapevine influencers in some of its movies while offering the stars in its films access to Grapevines online world to promote films.

Streaming Content to Homes

As Wonderfilm prepares to launch its own streaming movie channel into 100 million homes in 2019, Grapevine becomes an invaluable marketing asset to get the word out. The partnership will identify and categorize prospective viewers through their existing "likes" and "interactions" to then be introduced and funnel people to the specific Wonderfilm content of interest to them streaming on the new channel.

In tandem with the launch of the new channel, Wonderfilm will continue to develop theatrical films that fully utilize a similar strategy to gain full advantage from the online strength of Grapevines network of social media assets and influencers.

Starbury Media, Wonderfilms eSport Strategy

Wonderfilm recently announced its expansion into the exciting and growing world of eSports through the acquisition of Starbury Media. Starbury means Wonderfilm will shortly be organizing, hosting and controlling access to several exclusive eSports events within the US and China - monetizing both on-site and online viewing. Grapevine becomes a critical marketing and delivery asset for this and also allows for active cross-fertilizing of assets to bring key eSports stars into Wonderfilm movies and actors from our films making appearances at eSport events.

2019 Film Production and Content Creation

Wonderfilm is on target to meet its original projected 17 produced films for the 2019 calendar year. Currently 8 films are in postproduction with the other 9 films long approved and ready to begin production shortly. The Company has also added six new movies totaling $22 million USD in total production budgets, which brings the value of the current slate to $120 million USD.

Wonderfilm will continue to target the Asian market for co-productions, content development, creation and distribution opportunities. Based on many reports, the Asian media and entertainment market continues to expand at unprecedented levels.
