Los Angeles, CA – March 11, 2013 – Global Entertainment Holdings (OTC: GBHL) and the Lifton Institute of Media Arts and Sciences (LIMS) announce a collaborative effort in the creation and funding of a new film trade school to be opened in the Los Angeles area in the Fall of 2013. James Lifton, founder of LIMS, had success in opening a similar venture situated in the Detroit, Michigan area, where hundreds of unemployed autoworkers and others were able to receive the training necessary to reformat their skills “from the factory line to the silver screen”.
The Global Universal/LIMS venture will initially involve Global Universal seeking investment capital to develop the LIMS school in the Los Angeles area, for which it will receive a finders fee. Subsequently, the venture will endeavor to co-produce films that will afford LIMS students the opportunity to gain valuable experience working on actual Hollywood films as part of their student curriculum. Global Universal will work hand-in-hand with LIMS to find various positions for LIMS students on a variety of productions, including feature pictures, series, and “new media” productions shooting in the Southern California area, acting much like a “placement office”. Global Universal is expected to benefit with lower labor costs on its productions for film production tasks that are handled by LIMS students and supervised by experienced crew members.
This effort means that LIMS students not only get “hands-on” experience while at LIMS, but will have a leg up in securing paying jobs upon graduation, making the experience at LIMS much sought after. In announcing the affiliation, Lifton has declared that, “This is a “win-win” situation for not only LIMS and Global Universal, but most importantly for LIMS students who, once they have attained the necessary skills, will have an actual opportunity to obtain a real paying job in the film industry.”
Daniel Sherkow, Chief Operating Officer of Global Universal Entertainment stated, “Our affiliation with LIMS is a great fit for us as it helps our bottom line with lower production costs and raises our profile in not only Hollywood, but also within the political community of Los Angeles, as part of a job creation endeavor.”
