SpillWall Productions Signs 3-Year Operating Agreement With Film Alberta Studio of Edmonton and Hires Accomplished Production Executive, Todd Shotz

Major Step Forward for SpillWall Productions As Strong Growth Continues

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/01/12 -- Kairos Transmedia Inc. (www.kairostransmedia.com), a new media content creation and distribution company, today announced that its Alberta Canada based subsidiary, SpillWall Productions Inc. has signed a three year operating agreement with Film Alberta Studio of Edmonton, Canada. It has also hired production Executive Todd Shotz as Executive Vice President, Production and Development.

The agreement allows for SpillWall Productions to operate the studio, controlling the asset and leveraging it and other services to gain equity participation, intellectual property and digital rights in content. Dedicated to fun age-appropriate productions for teens and tweens and family-friendly projects, SpillWall Productions will produce content to be featured on SpillWall.com, the company's flagship distribution platform, as well as family friendly content for television and theatrical release.

As a development, financing and production company, SpillWall Productions will also offer television producers and film makers complete production services (principal/post), financing opportunities (debt/equity), manage government initiatives (grants/incentives/subsidies) and consulting on creative, distribution and marketing services. The company will also privately finance select projects along with Canadian subsidies, as well as Canadian and U.S. individual investor groups.

Bill Stuart, Kairos Transmedia's Chief Executive Officer said, "Our strategy is to produce and distribute fun, age-appropriate content for tweens and teens. Film Alberta Studio not only allows for this, but will also facilitate partnerships with others, gaining access to many more original content projects."

"The SpillWall Studio is a state-of-the-art studio and soundstage. Situated in a 51,570-square foot facility, it is comprised of a 15,000-square foot soundstage, 13 production office facilities, underground tank, carpentry/paint shops, mobile unit bay, 9 art department offices, 9 dressing rooms and full makeup, hair and wardrobe facilities," added Stuart.

Kairos Transmedia has also tapped Hollywood executive Todd Shotz as Executive Vice President, Production and Development. After a successful career managing theatrical productions on Broadway, Shotz worked for six years with Cheyenne Enterprises, actor Bruce Willis and producer Arnold Rifkin's production company where he served as its Vice-President. Shotz will oversee SpillWall Productions' feature film and television projects originating both from the company's internal development slate and from strategic partnerships.

"Although the traditional film and television studio industry is an interesting opportunity, SpillWall's new transmedia platform approach to content production, marketing and distribution, supported by an existing broad and deeply engaged audience is why I'm so excited to be involved," said Shotz. "It's one matter to make a film but another to get it distributed. With SpillWall.com we have ready access to distribution. In addition, by owning The Magazine, Canada's leading youth Magazine with over 1 million readers, producing multiple specialty publications and having existing airtime on multiple television networks we also have print and advertising in place. All these pieces make this a compelling endeavor.

Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data.
