"Bruno's Blues" Slated for Wide Release on iTunes June 3

VANCOUVER, May 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

"Bruno's Blues" indie music comedy film is scheduled for release on iTunes June 3. The
smokin' weird, shamelessly fun feature length movie is a fiction based on the real life of
Vancouver pianist Bruno Hubert. Filmmaker Michael Simard had originally planned to produce
a documentary on Bruno but after a glimpse of his lifestyle realized a feature length
comedy was more appropriate. Bizarre comedy weaves between musical performances by many
acclaimed artists including Brad Turner, Bill Campbell, Mike Allen and Denzal Sinclaire.
Many of the musicians play fictitious characters while Hubert dramatizes his own quirky

"A great escape for music and indie film fans," says Simard who financed the entire
project over ten years along with passion and dedication. "It's about the musical talent
of the artists. The slapstick comedy is a blunt tool used for spontaneous laughs between
the inspirational performances."

Real Piano™ 4.0 Includes Free Remote Control App, New Settings Interface and Enhanced Features for a Great Piano-Playing Experience on iOS Devices

Real Piano(TM) 4.0 Includes Free Remote Control App, New Settings Interface and Enhanced Features for a Great Piano-Playing Experience on iOS Devices

SAN FRANCISCO, May 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Cookie Apps(®) is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Real Piano(TM) 4.0 for iPhone and iPad. Real Piano is a favorite among amateur and professional musicians as well as music educators because of its full 88-key sliding keyboard design, impressive graphics, authentic grand piano sound and extensive feature set. The highlights in this latest release include a first-of-its-kind auxiliary app called Real Piano Remote for use on a secondary iOS device and a complete overhaul of the settings interface.

"We understand a pianist's need to move fluidly and nimbly across the keys, and addressing this need has remained an integral part of our development since version one," said Richard Bao, co-founder of Cookie Apps. "It's why we built our entire 88-key keyboard to be accessible during play with touch-to-slide and pinch-to-stretch functionality, instead of using clumsy octave paging controls like you see in other apps - and it's why we developed Real Piano Remote. We know pianists don't want to leave the keyboard to adjust settings, and now they don't have to."

Real Piano Remote is a great value-add for anyone who has two iOS devices connected to the same Wi-Fi network or via Bluetooth. It enables users to control various settings - volume, audio effects, transposition, etc. - in real time from one device while keeping a hand on the keyboard on the other device. There's also a feature that converts the secondary iOS device running Real Piano Remote into a sustain pedal.

Innovative notation features in the remote assist professional musicians with chord research and score composition. They also reinforce Real Piano's viability in music education, where the app continues to be popular among music teachers and band instructors. With both apps running on separate iOS devices, educators can play keys or strike chords on the Real Piano keyboard, and the music score instantly appears in Real Piano Remote.

The redesigned settings interface boasts new audio effects and enhanced transposition tools, and because the interface is built on a translucent background, users can now see the keyboard layouts taking effect as they toggle between them. To meet professionals' sophisticated tuning needs, version 4.0 includes a much wider range of frequencies than its predecessor as well as quick access to the most commonly used frequencies. The new Game Center support in Real Piano will likely appeal to those who enjoy earning usage and skills-based achievements.

Real Piano's recording and sharing capabilities, which were released in Real Piano HD Pro 3.0 last year, remain a highlight in version 4.0, though these features are currently only available on iPad. Pianists simply press the record button and start playing; pressing the button again stops and saves the recording. Recordings can be played back through the recordings interface, and players can easily share their recordings via e-mail, Facebook, SoundCloud and iTunes.

"We've really outdone ourselves with this new version. We're always working hard to address the needs of all types of users - amateurs, professionals, songwriters, instructors and students. In fact, requests we receive from our diverse user base continue to drive app enhancements and features, so while we love hearing glowing feedback like 'wonderful,' 'amazing,' 'easy to play' and 'by far the nicest' piano app, we also encourage users to continue sharing with us stories of how they're using Real Piano, and to keep their feature requests coming," said Bao.

Get Real Piano(TM) 4.0 and Real Piano Remote 1.0
Real Piano 4.0 for iPad and iPhone is available in the App Store for $2.99. Real Piano Remote 1.0, a supplementary app, is free to download and use. Anyone who has previously purchased Real Piano HD Pro can update to the latest Real Piano on both iPhone and iPad at no charge.

-- Eurosport's Brands and Businesses to Benefit from Discovery's
Operational Acumen, Local Expertise and Global Platforms.
-- Additional Reach and Scale Combined with Increased Investment in
"Must-Have" Content Will Create New Value for Advertisers, Affiliates
and Audiences across Europe and Asia.
Discovery Communications (Nasdaq: DISCA, DISCB, DISCK) today announced the completion of its acquisition of a controlling interest in Eurosport International, Europe's leading sports entertainment group. Discovery increased its interest in Eurosport to 51% from 20% as part of a larger strategic partnership with TF1 Group that began in December 2012.

Discovery was one of the first U.S. media companies to launch channels in Europe in 1989 and has invested steadily and significantly in its international business for 25 years. With the addition of Eurosport's six pay-TV brands, Eurosport, Eurosport HD, Eurosport 2, Eurosport 2 HD, Eurosport Asia-Pacific and Eurosportnews, Discovery Communications now operates more than 210 worldwide TV networks reaching 2.7 billion cumulative subscribers.

"Today is an exciting day for Discovery Communications and our leadership as the number one pay-TV programmer in the world. Eurosport is a perfect strategic fit for growing market share, strengthening relationships with advertisers and affiliates, and bringing 'must have' content to passionate viewers across the globe," said David Zaslav, President and CEO of Discovery Communications. "By combining Eurosport's popular sports programming with Discovery's global brands and local expertise, we will continue to capitalize on the international growth of pay-TV and create long-term value for our shareholders."

Discovery intends to make long-term strategic decisions and targeted investments to strengthen and expand Eurosport's sports programming and services to nourish and maximize Eurosport's audience and reach. As part of that effort, Discovery will be working with Eurosport management and employees on a long-term business plan that fully optimizes Eurosport's channels as part of Discovery's suite of global networks.

"Together, Discovery and Eurosport are undoubtedly stronger. Discovery has built the most successful international pay-TV business in all of media and we are excited to utilize that expertise to further strengthen Eurosport's programming and platforms," said Jean-Briac Perrette, President of Discovery Networks International. "We would like to thank TF1 for its leadership of Eurosport International and for giving us such a wonderful opportunity to expand our partnership."

"Eurosport is perfectly poised for its next phase of growth and I can think of no better partner than Discovery to make this vision a reality," said Nonce Paolini, Chairman and CEO of TF1. "Discovery has a proven track record of a long-term investment strategy that creates value for advertisers, affiliates and audiences around the world."

The closing price for Eurosport International was based on an average enterprise valuation for the Eurosport Group of EUR902 million (approximately $1.2 billion), partly corresponding to the initial valuation and partly to a higher valuation linked to the control of the company. From this group valuation, the value of Eurosport France (EUR85 million, approximately $115 million) has been deducted. TF1 expects to retain its 80% interest in Eurosport France until at least January 1, 2015. Also, today's closing does not impact the other two elements of the original deal - the 20% interest Discovery acquired in TV Breizh, Histoire, Ushuaia TV and Stylia channels, and a production alliance with TF1 Group. TF1 will retain the ability to exercise a put option over the remaining 49% in Eurosport International, which would potentially increase Discovery's ownership to 100%.

The company is moving into a new, state-of-the-art facility, capable of accommodating up to 700 employees, which will be the largest footprint for a visual effects company in Vancouver.

WASHINGTON, May 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Redacted Tonight, hosted by comedian Lee Camp, gives the news bulletins of the week a political satire treatment. It premieres May 30 and will air Fridays at 8 pm EDT on RT America.

This is not your grandparents' satire program. Every week Redacted Tonight will provide "comedy news with a punch." This weekly show tackles all the real news stories the mainstream media failed to mention and provides new angles on the ones they do.

"With reality now seeming like a Shakespearean comedy, perhaps only comedy can truly bring truth to the people, and news is much better consumed with a spoonful of laughter," says Camp. "This show is information and laughter slammed into a 30-minute, no-holds-barred, full-frontal in-your-face fun-sized comedic attack on those ransacking the world."

A D.C. native, Lee Camp has performed biting political stand-up comedy around the world live and on TV and radio for 17 years. His "Moment of Clarity" videos online have attracted a following of millions. George Carlin's daughter Kelly Carlin said Camp is "one of the few keeping my father's torch lit" and Scotland's The Herald called Camp "Jon Stewart with teeth." Correspondents on Redacted Tonight include the fiery comedian John F. O'Donnell and cutting RT reporter Sam Sacks. Comedic actor Phillip Chang is also featured. Together they find out what's under the black ink.

Redacted Tonight with Lee Camp is RT's first political comedy show. It joins the lineup of exciting and provocative RT America programs that includes Politicking with Larry King, The Big Picture with Thom Hartman and Breaking the Set with Abby Martin. It airs every Friday at 8 pm Eastern Daylight Time, and is re-broadcast at 11:30pm. Watch the Redacted Tonight promo:

Touring Exhibit Debuts Summer 2015

Company Appoints Veteran Thinkwell Executive To Oversee Branded Attractions

SANTA MONICA, Calif., May 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of its initiative to extend its global brands and franchises into new lines of business, Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF), the premier next generation global content leader, will launch a U.S. tour of "The Hunger Games: The Exhibition" in summer 2015, it was announced today by Lionsgate Chief Marketing Officer Tim Palen. The state-of-the-art exhibition, which will include interactive displays of authentic costumes, props and other elements of the world of The Hunger Games, will be designed in conjunction with Thinkwell Group, one of the world's leading theme park and location-based entertainment companies.

The first two Hunger Games films have grossed more than $1.5 billion at the worldwide box office and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire became the highest-grossing domestic release of 2013 and the 10(th) highest-grossing domestic release of all time. "The Hunger Games: The Exhibition" will launch several months ahead of the November 20, 2015 worldwide release of the fourth Hunger Games film, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2, and will incorporate artifacts featured in the first three films from locations within the Capitol and the various Districts of Panem. The exhibition will be featured in major museums and institutions across the country and will be supported by a multimedia promotional effort and nationwide advance ticket sales.

"Now that we've built a critical mass of intellectual property, we're committed to extending our brands into exciting new businesses that create opportunities for our fans to engage with our properties at the same time they deliver significant incremental financial benefits to Lionsgate," said Palen. "We're thrilled to launch this initiative with the U.S. tour of The Hunger Games exhibition, which celebrates the world of The Hunger Games and offers Hunger Games fans an extensive behind-the-scenes look at the movie-making process." He noted that the exhibits will also be paired with local school curricula, and nearly all aspects of the tour will be interactive.

Palen also announced that, as part of the studio's commitment to expand its branded retail and merchandising operations, it has brought veteran Thinkwell executive Jenefer Brown in-house, naming her to the newly created post of Senior Vice President, Branded Attractions. Brown will not only oversee the launch of the U.S. tour of The Hunger Games exhibition but will explore additional theme park attraction and other location-based entertainment opportunities around the world for The HungerGames franchise and the Company's entire portfolio of branded properties.

Brown brings over 10 years of experience working in both the entertainment and high-technology industries. Most recently, Brown served as both a project manager and director of business development, where she managed the strategic planning and creative development of location-based entertainment projects and live events for major film studios and Fortune 500 Companies, including Warner Bros. Entertainment, Anschutz Entertainment Group, the National Basketball Association, CORE Media Group, Sesame Workshop and Nickelodeon Animation Studios.

Brown will be overseeing the production and management of all branded attraction efforts on behalf of Lionsgate as the company focuses on expanding its IP presence in this space. She will report to Chief Marketing Officer Tim Palen. She holds a JD, cum laude from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law and a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of California at Berkeley.


Lionsgate is a leading global entertainment company with a strong and diversified presence in motion picture production and distribution, television programming and syndication, home entertainment, family entertainment, digital distribution, new channel platforms and international distribution and sales.

Role-Playing Strategy Game Delivers Unique Fan Experience

SAN FRANCISCO and SANTA MONICA, Calif., May 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Kabam, a world leader in free-to-play games for traditional players, today announced that it has partnered with Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF), the premier next generation global content leader, to create a mobile game based on the global blockbuster movie franchise The Hunger Games.

Kabam will produce an exclusive role playing, card collection mobile game that will deliver the action of the blockbuster film into the hands of avid fans around the world. In the game, players assume the identity of District members sent on a mission in order to build their alliance, liberate their District, and rebuild Panem.

"Lionsgate has an unparalleled track record of developing and producing blockbuster movie franchises like The Hunger Games," said Kabam Chief Operating Officer Kent Wakeford. "Partnering with Lionsgate, Kabam will build a mobile game that's as much fun to play as the movie is to watch."

The blockbuster The Hunger Games franchise, starring Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence, is a global phenomenon whose first two installments have grossed more than $1.5 billion at the worldwide box office, and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is the 10(th) highest-grossing domestic release of all time. The next two installments of the series, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2, will be released on November 21, 2014, and November 20, 2015, respectively.

"We are so pleased to be working with Kabam to give the fans an experience like they have never had before," said Danielle DePalma, Lionsgate's EVP of Digital Media. "Being able to role-play with the mentors straight from the world of The Hunger Games will let fans feel as if they are in the middle of the action."

The game will be developed in Kabam's China studio, the same place where the hit movie based game The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-earth was created and went on to generate more than $100 million in revenue during its first year.

Deep Hollywood relationships and access to blockbuster intellectual property (IP) is a key differentiator for Kabam in the free-to-play games sector. Kabam is a leader in taking an established film and extending that brand into mobile and web games that create new levels of engagement for global audiences long after a movie's theatrical run. Kabam has experienced massive growth since its founding as a games company a little more than four years ago. The company now has more than 800 employees in offices throughout North America, Europe and Asia. Kabam generated more than $360 million in revenue in 2013, a 100 percent growth over 2012, and predicts $550 million in revenue in 2014.

Kabam is the leader in the western world for free-to-play games for traditional players with first and third party published titles available on mobile devices via its own dedicated channel in the Apple App Store, Google Play, Amazon Appstore, and on the Web via Facebook, Yahoo, and other platforms. Kabam is the fastest growing Internet media company in the San Francisco Bay Area and the 17th fastest growing company overall in the U.S., according to Deloitte LLP. Kabam's 2013 revenues exceeded $360 million, a 100 percent increase over 2012. The company is profitable and cash-flow positive, and has created four titles that have grossed more than $100M each in their life. Kabam's Kingdoms of Camelot franchise has grossed more than $250 million in less than four years, making it one of the top 10 strategy franchises of all time. In 2012, Kabam Publishing was launched to provide third-party developers access to Kabam's technology platform, distribution channels, data analytics and best practices that Kabam's in-house development teams use to bring wildly successful games to players worldwide. Kabam has approximately 800 employees around the world, with corporate headquarters in San Francisco. The company's investors include Google, Warner Brothers, MGM, Intel, Canaan Partners, Redpoint Ventures, Pinnacle Ventures and others. More information about Kabam can be found at

About the Self Help Industry

In a 2013 press release titled "$10.4 Billion Self-Improvement Market Survives Scandals & Recession - More Content & Services Being Delivered Online, Finds Marketdata Enterprises" Marketdata Enterprises, Inc., a leading independent market research publisher since 1979, released the 9th edition of one of its best-selling studies, a 382-page report entitled: The U.S. Market For Self-Improvement Products & Services.

In the study it states... "Technology is driving the way Americans produce, find, obtain and use self-improvement content."

The study quotes...

MARKET VALUE... The total U.S. self-improvement market was worth $9.84 billion last year, versus $10.82 billion in 2007 -- a 9.1% 4-year decline. We forecast better 6.1% average yearly gains from 2012 to 2016. The recession took a toll on most market segments, including live seminars, books, infomercials, personal coaching, commercial diet programs and stress management. However, growth was evident in audiobooks, medical diet programs and holistic institutes/training companies.

AUDIOBOOKS MARKET... This is now a $2.97 billion segment. After dipping 10% in 2009, sales have rebounded strongly, 10% in 2010 and 13% in 2011. The APA says that 24+ million Americans now listen to audiobooks. Of this total, self-improvement titles account for $445 million--or about 17% of all audio book sales. 24% of Americans now listen to audiobooks.

This is the industry Imagination TV lives in. There is no other Self Help based TV network on cable or broadcast today. Imagination TV is not a religious network but will feature content that Inspires, Motivates and Entertains.
