World Wide Motion Pictures was founded in July of 1977 and became World Wide Motion Pictures Corporation (WWMPC) on December 9, 1980. From 1983 to 2006 the company was a fully reporting publicly held entity trading on the NASD Electronic Bulletin Board Exchange. In 2006, the corporation became affiliated with Energy King, Inc. through a reverse merger mechanism. In 2008, the company separated from Energy King, with WWMPC having no further association with Energy King.
The company’s executive offices are in Huntington Beach, CA. Other facilities and subsidiary locations are maintained in Sherman Oaks, CA, Detroit, MI, and New York City, NY.
WWMPC was organized to finance, develop, package, produce, purchase, and distribute a wide variety of superior-quality filmed and videotaped entertainment, including but not limited to feature films, short subjects, docudramas, documentaries, industrial films, and television productions. For each and every project that we undertake, the tools and concepts of high technology, moderate budget, cost control, and continual flow of product are utilized.
Feature films and documentary projects completed and/or distributed by WWMPC are sold or licensed to exhibitors, television networks, television cable companies, digital platforms and home entertainment outlets throughout the world. The company generates revenue from a variety of sources; the three basic media sources are: (1) theatrical exhibition (commensurate with agreements with the exhibitors which provide for payment by the exhibitors of a percentage of box office receipts with or without a guarantee of a fixed minimum); (2) licensing to television networks, regional broadcasters, and syndicated agreements (also commensurate with agreements which provide for a fixed license fee payable in periodic installments); and (3) wholesale of film/DVD product to various home entertainment outlets encompassing both foreign and domestic markets after an agreed upon fixed retail rental formula. Additional profits may also accumulate from the ancillary exploitation of media product, including satellite broadcast, video on demand, and internet streaming/download; screenings on airlines, cruise ships, university circuits, and military bases; and literary rights, merchandising, and related paraphernalia.
WWMPC has a 16-member Board of Directors and elected officers. Board committees and staff committees include an Executive Committee and other policy and operating committees. We also enter into contracts with industry-specific individuals and companies who provide and arrange for technical, theatrical, business, production, marketing, public relations, advertising, and distribution services.
The principals of WWMPC have extensive backgrounds in management, production, marketing, and distribution in film, television, and interactive media industries. In producing, acquiring, marketing, and distributing high quality, cost-controlled motion picture and television productions over a wide budget spectrum, they have demonstrated a diverse range of knowledge and complementary experience.
Executives of WWMPC have produced, distributed, and consulted on a wide variety of feature films, documentaries, short subjects, television productions, and several hundred industrial motion pictures. They have earned many national and international film production awards over the past 35 years including Academy Awards, Academy Award Nominations, Emmy Awards, Emmy Award Nominations, Drummer Awards, and gold, silver, and bronze medals from various international film festivals. The company also has highly qualified professionals in various disciplines, including business affairs, legal, and finance, who have been with the corporation for many years.
WWMPC’s various production, development, marketing, and finance committees continually review feature film and television projects for possible financing, packaging, production and/or distribution. Management of the company encourages screenplay and teleplay submissions along with completed productions in all genres of filmed and digital entertainment in order to ensure the best possible opportunity for selection of marketable and quality products.
In addition to ongoing general submissions, WWMPC currently owns, maintains, and continually expands on a completed film and television library encompassing over 300 motion picture, documentary, docudrama, and television titles. The company also owns a screenplay and teleplay library, film production equipment, a sound effects library, a still slide library, novels, and options on other literary works.
WWMPC’s 35+ years of market research and experience, as well as our production philosophy focusing on cost-controlled, moderate budget productions, continual flow of product, and high-quality benchmarks, has determined what feature films and television products we produce and/or distribute. With an emphasis on these disciplines, the company’s projects currently maintain a high degree of profit potential.
Today, WWMPC has over 200 professionals and affiliates representing various regions in the United States and abroad who are involved with the corporation in its packaging, finance, production, marketing, and distribution areas. WWMPC has evolved from a sole proprietorship in 1977, to a privately held corporation acquiring other companies, to a publicly held and diversified company with subsidiaries, affiliates, and shareholders throughout the world.
