Los Angeles, CA – (WORLD STOCK WIRE) – June 14, 2010 — Global Entertainment Holdings, Inc. a publicly traded entertainment Company (OTC: GBHL), and Global Universal Entertainment, a wholly-owned subsidiary of GBHL, announced today that it has purchased the film production, distribution, merchandising and licensing rights for “Seeing Things”, a supernatural thriller based on actual events, written by John Huckert and John Matkowsky.

Huckert is set to Direct the supernatural thriller with Matkowsky as his Director of Photographer. Eric A. Leffler, Director of Business Development for Global Universal Film Group, and Gary Rasmussen, CEO GBHL, are the Executive Producers.

GBHL CEO and Executive Producer, Gary Rasmussen said “We are very excited about acquiring Seeing Things for our next feature film production and plans are under way to begin production this Fall in Michigan. Given the worldwide mass appeal of films in this genre, like Paranormal Activity and Blair Witch (with estimated budgets under $100,000 and gross revenues of well beyond $100 Million), I believe Seeing Things will have an excellent chance of success at the box office.”
“Seeing Things is a Ghost story that is based on actually events that are truly amazing and well documented by the Fox TV reality show SIGHTINGS, renowned spiritualist and psychic Peter James, as well as by the many photographs taken by Huckert and Matkowsky. If you had any doubts about the afterlife, then you need to see this story”, says Executive Producer Eric A. Leffler, Director of Business Development for Global Universal Film Group.

In late 1992, two residents living in an old house in the Hills of Los Angeles begin receiving ghostly messages in Polaroid photographs. The pair took many photos inside the house in the hopes of obtaining a picture of the entity they believed haunted the house. Eventually, ghostly images appeared and the men soon discovered that if they asked questions about the entity and why it inhabited their house, words and messages appeared on the photos in response. Since the first messages appeared, many thousands of photos have captured the spirit’s messages on a variety of subjects of interest to mankind.

Daniel Sherkow, COO of Global Universal Entertainment, further commented “Our financing methods, which significantly mitigate investment risk, have certainly been proven sound. Four major motion pictures financed and completed in just eighteen months in this uncertain economy speaks volumes as to our development strategy. The strong interest in our Murder/Horror thriller Plaster Rock, has shown us that this genre is desired by a large segment of the movie-going population. I won’t give away too much of the movie but Seeing Things is based on actual happenings over the past 18 years.”

The state of Michigan has made available tax credits which will underwrite a significant portion of the cost of the production of Seeing Things. GBHL’s first four motion pictures were produced in Canada using the same tax credit, leveraged financing strategy.

Action on the set: Allen Park’s fight for studio brings rewards

New ideas

The newest player is North Carolina entrepreneur Arthur Wylie.

Wylie, 35, built a money management portfolio while in college and parlayed that into a series of investments in movie projects under the firm he created, Global Renaissance Entertainment Group.

He has issued press releases and told Crain’s that he has the intellectual property rights to develop 25 movies, including a deal for books written by novelist Omar Tyree.

Wylie also said he is “in discussions with” Mark Ordesky, producer of “Lord of the Rings.” He has brought the producer to city and county-level meetings.

In October, Wylie formed a joint venture with Las Vegas-based entertainment company Global Entertainment Holdings Inc. (OTC: GBHL). The new company, Global Renaissance Funding L.L.C., according to SEC filings, was formed for the two groups to jointly raise between $20 million and $100 million to finance movies.

Wylie was hired in April by the city in a $125,000 contract to market the site.

However, he said, after touring the site and generating ideas for uses, he is interested in buying part of the space for the production of movies under his Global Renaissance title.

“At this point, I’m very interested in acquiring space in this facility for the production of movies that I’m involved with,” he said.

He said Friday that he has submitted a proposal to buy a “significant portion” of the film campus. He did not disclose the price. Burtka confirmed that the city has received the offer, but did not comment otherwise.

Global Renaissance May Make Films in Allen Park

Friday, June 11th, 2010


ALLEN PARK, Mich. – There new hope for making Allen Park the Hollywood of Michigan. The city has attracted a film school and a new outside investor who’s promising to make more movies.

Arthur Wylie says he stands ready to invest “probably anywhere between a million and two million dollars” to start making movies in Allen Park. He company is called Global Renaissance.

“My real estate broker called me, said we got a facility… here in Detroit, Michigan, Allen Park area, and I think they have everything that you need,” Wylie said. “I said, ‘No, that’s impossible to have everything that I need.’ He said, ‘No, every single thing already ready to go.'”

Then locally, there’s the Center for Film Studies relocating to the same site near Southfield and I-94.

“Center for Film Studies is training people for jobs in the film industry, entry level or technical jobs like grip, lighting, production assistant, set building,” said Mort Meisner with the school.

All which begs the question whatever happened to the much hyped Unity Studios with its watercolor renderings of a studio lot like Warner Brothers.

“Unity has reduced down… the expectation,” said Wayne County Executive Robert Ficano. “We knew there (were) some issues because the county did not offer a Renaissance Zone at that time, which Unity asked for.”

“I don’t want to take anything away from Unity. They still are a tenant on-site. They are current with the dues. I think that it got a little blown out of proportion the entire episode,” said Allen Park Mayor Gary Burtka.

Conversely, Wylie says he’s got big name producers on his side, such as Mark Ordesky, who was an executive producer for the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy of movies.

Allen Park’s mayor tells us that Wylie’s company is not yet a paying tenant on-site. In fact, they’re sort of crashing at the Stautzenberger Institute where people learn how to be personal trainers and massage therapists.

“Arthur Wylie is actually occupying space here,” Burtka said. “They’ve been here for quite some time, and they’re reviewing everything that’s going on here.”

Wylie says filming could begin by year’s end… SEE VIDEO
