FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla, Nov. 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via InvestorWire – The Movie Studio, Inc. (OTC: MVES) (the “Company”) proudly announces a strategic partnership and service agreement with VIVA Entertainment Group, Inc. (OTC: OTTV) to align the mutually beneficial assets and associations of the two publicly traded companies.
The performance covenants between the entities specifically focuses on potential cross advertising between the companies’ over-the-top (OTT) platforms and apps, as well as content licensing, production and distribution services, and associations of current intellectual properties during the term of the agreement.
In addition, the agreement cumulates the companies’ associations, relationships and branding while leveraging the strengths of the principal’s functions to facilitate the production, acquisitions, branding and distribution of the companies’ motion picture content on multiple platforms, including domestic, foreign, video on demand (VOD) and blockchain platforms.
The strategic partnership and joint venture forged between the companies per the performance covenants augments and combines substantial OTT platforms, cross-pollination opportunities and talent associations between the entities and could significantly reduce overlapping capital expenditures.
