Vancouver, BC – January 2, 2019 – The Wonderfilm Media Corporation (TSXV – WNDR.V), (OTC: WDRFF), (Frankfurt: 25Y) (“Wonderfilm” or the “Company”) is excited to announce that over the past several weeks, CEO Kirk Shaw and founding Producer Partner, Jeff Bowler have purchased a combined 400,000 shares of Wonderfilm on the open market.
Wonderfilm CEO, Kirk Shaw purchased a total of 200,000 shares in December 2018 on the open market and in the same time frame, Jeff Bowler, Wonderfilm Producing Partner, purchased 200,000.
Mr. Shaw comments: “The recent $30 million deals expand the core media creation business: Grapevine 3.2 billion online followers, SVOD Channel in 100,000,000 homes, eSports “the Fastest Growing Sport” (Labroots.com) and acquisition of Bruno Wu’s established entertainment assets that open direct access to the lucrative Asian market, plus Wonderfilm’s financed movie and TV production slate of $90,000,000. We are adding diversified new revenue streams as Wonderfilm redefines media creation around the world. As an entrepreneur and a producer, this is the most exciting time of my career. With current market prices, I’m confident this is a time to buy.”
Mr. Jeff Bowler: “To a content producer like me, 2019 is going to be an amazing year for Wonderfilm. Grapevine’s online follows are a marketing coup that impacts everything we are doing, both in production and with eSports, SVOD, Asia marketing and more. Only large conglomerates such as NBC Universal have similar marketing reach and power. We can market to over 3 billion people, produce and distribute in Asia and bring online influencers into movies, promote our stars online, and deliver new content direct to China.”
