  1. 1. AMG's Mark S. Berry Announces Live James Brown Film With Family On Board Deal Involves Live Concert Documentary, Unreleased Masters,Hologram Live Concert & Additional Feature Film Of Holographic Concert. Even though AMG Visuals' Chairman Mark S. Berry can be an uncompromising guy,when he had a chance to get involved with making a movie about James Brown two years ago, he chose to wait until the family was ready as he knew their involvement would be an invaluable asset to the success ofthe project. That patience has paid off big time. AMG Visuals has reached an agreement with Loochie Records And Publishing LLC/James Brown Family and is now moving forward with what it hopes will be the ultimate live-concert documentary film on the man whose vocal wizardry and dance sensibilities made him one of the most iconic stars in soul/pop history. AMG has established a theatrical street date of October 2015 that will be produced by Berry and its international team of producers Kevin Stallings & Ryan Hamsho. Mark S. Berry and AMG's EVP Rob "Kelo" Hendricks will executive produce for AMG. Best of all, Brown's best known tunes,from Sex Machine, Get Up Off That Thing to Living In America, will be used as part of the films live soundtrackthat was Mr. Brown's las t live recorded performance in Anaheim, California, just prior to his death in 2006. AMG had negotiated directly with Stallings whom directed the live portion of the concert. Potential interviewees include family members of James Brown, the JB's Fred Wesley & Maceo Parker, Danny Ray (Brown's long timer friend and MC), singer Chris Brown, Bootsy Collins and many more. Also in the deal are multiple unreleased James Brown audio masters (not from the film) that will become a duet CD (along the lines of Nat King Cole/Natalie Cole's "Unforgettable") with some of today's biggest pop/urban stars for a release in 2016. There will be a further future live concert development of the project in preserving and promoting the great talent and contribution of James Brown to the Music and Performing Arts. Guy Morel in Australia is on board as a Co-Executive Producer with regards to the DUETS LIVE CONCERT and the Holographic imaging of James Brown. A performance including holographic, state of the art technology and fellow artists at a major performance venue in the USA for 2016 will be announced soon.Co Executive Producer Morel adds, "We want to get this right so it's an event worthy of Mr. Brown's great talent and contribution to the arts. Some of the music industries major artists, promoters and legals want this to be the first of many projects in the preservation and promotion of this great performers iconic talents". This show would be an entire evening of Holographic Duets with the artists that perform on the Duet CD with inter-cut James Brown interview/family footage along with archival as well. This will be a huge international event and bring an entire new generation of listeners to James Brown music. Berry and Morel and their team see this as their way of giving back to an industry that's forever evolving but knowing that the foundation should be maintained and preserved. Morel is currently scouting partners for the Holographic imaging. Daryl Brown, Mr. Brown's son says,"I have never been so excited about a project, Kevin Stallings has really captured the great essence ofmy father from the footage already shot.Mark Berry and AMG are the right team to see it come to fruition for a theatrical, broadcast & DVD release of the film properties and the duet CD. It is right there with the feelings I got when I first stepped on stage with my father". Director Kevin Stallings adds," I would like to thank my creator, the James Brown family & associates for trusting me and being a part of a memorable production based on the legacy James Brown established throughout his ground-breaking career as one of the greatest entertainers of all time. Mark Berry's vision of introducing the James Brown of yester-year through the superstarDuet CD will see this legacy continue to a whole new audience". "Being involved with such a high profile project from the films to the audio Duet CD is needless to say humbling; I could not be more excited to be teaming up with Loochie, Daryl Brown and the family of James Brown. Their passion and vision for the films and unreleased masters felt like the perfect strategy to bring it to international audiences," says AMG's Chairman Mark S. Berry. "It's been an amazing ride so far with such a great and supportive team on board, we are thrilled to be moving forward."

  10. 10. Sizzlin' Cooking Show Poised For Major Broadcast Deals Internationally AMG Lifestyle's First Rollout. TORONTO - It's in 2015 that AMG decided to create a new division to enter Canadian television - lifestyle. The production company is already present in the country for eighteen years providing music and related services to the international film industry landing high profile placements in films from The Matrix Reloaded to TV's America's Most Wanted.Recently, Berry along with AMG EVP Rob "Kelo" Hendricks developed and executive produced the live concert feature film, Drake's Homecoming The Lost Footage,in an international partnership with Specticast, Fathom/AMC, Cineplex Odeon & Rap-a-Lot Records. North American theatrical is set with AMC & Cineplex Odeon for March 19, 2015 For years focusing on music, AMG found an opportunity to carve a new space and saw potential in the consumption of lifestyle programming among the Canada's various ethnicities. Today lifestyle content on television is pervasive. AMG has been responsible for opening up genres with their new international cookery show, Sizzlin'. It was the right time for AMG to start its lifestyle portfolio with the acquisition and launch of B- Squared Entertainment, co-executive production team of Sizzlin' headed up by Frank Blenman. AMG Lifestyle's long-term goal is to create new segments of lifestyle ranging from wine, cheese, travel, cuisine to high life. Sizzlin' was an overnight success as it was loved for its refreshing and differentiated content by international broadcasters,affiliates and advertisers. Frank Blenman, B-Squared's co-president, was made to look after the lifestyle initiative. The vision of launching AMG Lifestyle was to increase people's horizons. "We did a whole lot of background work to find out about the various cultures and society,what people want, what their aspirations are, what they read. It was a time when people were open to new things.We offer them that. We showthem new places to travel, explore different kinds of cuisine and even different hotels to stay in. We wanted to help discover different kinds of holidays, driving experiences, vineyards,wine etc." said Blenman. Blenman noted the challenge of being a first mover. "We had to build brand familiarization by effectively communicating the proposition and developing a community for first-time viewers of a new category of television entertainment. People were getting more interested in leisure time activities. They also started becoming more interested in brands whether it was clothing or cars. The concept of eating in restaurants and experimenting with food was catching on. A big change was going on in urban North America in terms of how people spent their money and lived. We want AMG Lifestyle to became the default production entity for new lifestyle entertainment in North America." We had three challenges reacted to the stakeholders in this business.One challenge was convincing distributors that Sizzlin' was worth showing. You had to persuade advertisers that this is something worth being invested in. After all, advertisers plan budgets for different types in advance.Viewers also had to be convinced as they have viewing habits. They have eight to ten shows that they choose from. We had to break into that." Growing exposure to lifestyle also helped AMG grow. "I remember getting emails from people saying that they had planned a Caribbean holiday after watching the Sizzlin' screener. Watchers wrote that they visited a restaurant after it was featured on our AMG screener for Sizzlin'. They were planning trips around television content.This was a testament to the fact that we got both our launch timing right and programming right," said Berry. We generated interest from the advertising and marketing communities very early on." For Blenman the key to success lay in being ahead of the curve in identifying emerging trends and developing programming for a supreme viewing experience. There was increasing awareness and desire to know more about the world around, different life style, cuisine, trends,etc. The plan going forward is to continue to bring in more types oflifestyle entertainment and to broaden AMG's Lifestyle appeal, present more acclaimed personalities, amplify Canadian content and invest in marketing and distribution of a Lifestyle channel. "AMG is positioned to be the premium lifestyle producer and will continue to enhance its offering with a wide variety of lifestyle content.The Canadian television landscape is ever changing and we have stayed ahead of t he curve by recognizing the evolving trends and addressing them by creating new television genres and distinct
  11. 11. audience segments.We are committed to further invest in content,distribution and promotion to deliver the finest viewing experience and offer the maximum value to the advertisers," concludes Berry.

There's a great creative spirit there that we all immediately recognized and I wanted to be a part of." "Kevin Chase commands the live stage with fervor," says AGR President Andreas Graban. "His songs encapsulate the fever and frailty of human emotion in a way that appeals to me as a music advocate.For that reason,I'm extremely proud to have Kevin as the newest member of the AGR family." Kevin Chase is currently applying final strokes to his eagerly awaited album "Groove On", collaborating with co-producers Marc Gosselin and Jim Kuehnel. Top producer Anthony Little also took part with his work on lead single "Whole Lotta Honey" and "Rock Me Country".

"This is one of those songs that really paints a picture and sets a mood," AMG Chariman Mark Berry said about "Whole Lotta Honey". "In my mind, you look over and see the person that you love next to you sitting in the front seat,and you think, 'How good do I have it? Life is perfect.' There is a certain warmth to Kevin's songs and several others like it" on the album. Chase, at the same time, though,set into the project with the sure-footed attitude of someone who knows not only the business,but himself. "I feel like I've got enough wherewithal about me and been doing this long enough now," he explained, "that there's a certain confidence in what I'm doing that makes everything feel more visceral."
