VGTel Announces the Appointment of Advisory Board

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - May 15, 2014) - VGTel, Inc.  (OTCQB: VGTL), an emerging international leader in entertainment media and film financing, today announced that Ralph Rieckermann, Christopher J. Scott and Michel Sanner, Ph.D. have been appointed to the company's Advisory Board. The newly formed committee will provide the Board of Directors strategic guidance on partnering strategy, film production projects and technology innovations.

"We are pleased that Ralph, Chris and Michel have agreed to lend their considerable talents and expertise to the board of VGTel," said Neil Fogel of VGTel. "These distinguished individuals all possess unique skill sets and their collective experience will be a valuable resource as the company continues to gain momentum in the market."

VGTel's interests include film production, post production and film financing. In November 2013, the company announced it was converting a series of giant screen format films to digital 4K and, last month, the company announced it was forming Grand Schema Entertainment, a film financing company for the production and co-production of movies and television programs. 

VGTel Advisory Board Members include:

Ralph Rieckermann
Best known for his 12 year career as a member of one of the world's best selling bands, The Scorpions, Mr. Rieckermann studied at the most esteemed music conservatories during his youth in Germany. Since leaving the band in 2004, Mr. Rieckermann has composed film scores for more than 38 feature films and has provided music supervision for over 26 films. His professional training and education combined with his many years in the rock and film industry makes Mr. Rieckermann one of the most promising new composers in the industry.

Christopher J. Scott
Founder of Grand Schema NYC, a full service production and post production company, Mr. Scott is an award winning producer and director whose credits include an Emmy nomination, direction of narrative film that appeared at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival and a 2010 off-Broadway play.

Michel F. Sanner Ph.D.
Dr. Sanner is an associate professor in the Department of Integrative Structural & Computational Biology (ISCB) of The Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla (CA) where he spent the past two decades working on algorithms for modeling protein-drug interactions in order to predict new drugs. Dr. Sanner's expertise also extends to the fields of scientific visualization, 3D graphics, display technologies, and software architecting and development. He has published over 40 peer reviewed research articles and has been awards numerous grants from the National Institute of Health (NIH) and the Department of Defense for supporting his research.

"These three talented individuals will bring valuable expertise and perspective to the Board of Directors," added Fogel. "We have big plans to grow our film business though original productions and co-production deals with both independent and major studios. The significant production experience of Ralph and Chris combined with Michel's technical knowledge of new media will be an invaluable asset to our company and will help us achieve our long term financial goals."

Earlier this week, VGTel announced the addition of three new members to its Board of Directors effective July 2014.
