The primary focus of this division at this writing is to establish Movieworld, Inc., an offshore entity in the tax-sheltered Cayman Islands. Movieworld will produce international TV programs for the international market. The corporation may take the form of a partnership that will include TV networks in Europe, Asia, Australia, and in the Americas.
THE MOVIEWORLD ROI AWARDS; an annual TV special will be the company’s first project. The ROI Awards, in TV and Internet simulcast, will honor the films that achieved the highest ROI for the year (return on investment). This program will compete with Hollywood’s Academy Awards and is expected to be carried by 100 international TV networks. A time-sales and barter division will make the program affordable to all TV networks in the world.
While frequently the Oscars give awards to films which few in the TV audience have seen (and sometimes award films which fail to earn back their original budget) the ROI Awards are determined by box office which assures that meaningful numbers know the films. Additionally, sufficient exposure to the winning films will be given the films within the program so that the TV audience will have perspective on what it is that is getting the award.
There will be no “foreign films” category in the Movieworld ROI Awards since it is international and will represent – (as well as belong to) - the entire world. Whenever required and appropriate, there will be some foreign languages used (with subtitles). While the Oscars is a family affair, burdened by a need to please all family factions, The Movieworld ROI Awards will concentrate on international talent entertainment consisting of the best music and dance available around the world with prattle kept to a minimum.
The following programs will be developed and produced for domestic Canadian, American and overseas English language markets.
