The Corporate Circus, the original and innovatively creative fantasy style corporate satire book-based property, written and created by Adela JP (pen name of Adela Josue Polin, MBA), has signed a co-production animation project deal with a premier animation entity in Beijing China, Beijing China Cartoon Media Co., LTD (BCCM) http://www.ccif.com.cn/eng/

This original first of its kind “cross-cultural” animation cooperation deal was negotiated through the International Law Firm of Michael R. Polin (http://www.polinlawfirm.com) and with International Television for Asia (ITA), a U.S. entertainment company. Both companies are actively involved in the burgeoning China entertainment industry with an emphasis on television, animation, merchandising, publishing and digital content for mobile phones and the Internet. Michael R. Polin, an international business, entertainment and trial attorney, is a highly sought after keynote speaker on China media entertainment(cultural)industry.

The terms of this multi-faceted co-production deal include the creation of new original animated content shorts for China’s mobile phone subscribers (350 million) and Internet users (120 million), as well as creation of new animated adult television shows for both the United States and China television audiences.

As reported frequently in the press, China entertainment and media is about to skyrocket with original product (referencing BBC News article “China 'ripe' for media explosion” March 13, 2005 - http://www.bbcnews.com). "China is the world’s largest cell phone subscriber market (China Mobile http://www.chinamobile.com/english/ and China Unicom http://www.unicom.com/english/) and is now actively seeking content to launch in 2005. Thus, the timing of this animation project deal could not be better for The Corporate Circus," said Attorney Polin.

The parties intend to use this unique cooperation project to exemplify globally the superior partnership and strategic working relationship between American and Chinese animation companies in producing original media programming and content. The parties intend further cooperation in 2005 and will make announcements in the coming months.

Adela Josue Polin, President of The Corporate Circus, Inc. is an MBA whose corporate experience led to the writing of “The Corporate Circus” as an entertainingly satiric look at corporate life. She founded the company to market and license the animated characters she developed in her book. The Corporate Circus properties consist of 15 unique office humor characters in the form of collectible plush dolls satirizing the workplace, and an original tongue-in-cheek corporate satire book title “The Corporate Circus – a fairy tale soap opera on office life.” The Corporate Circus has received a 5 Star rave review from Midwest Book Review as “humorous, witty and engagingly presented…a highly recommended reading!”

“This first of its kind cross-cultural production effort between BCCM and The Corporate Circus, which involves taking an original American intellectual property and co-developing/animating it in China, is truly exciting. I am very enthusiastic to have this unique and immense opportunity to reach the worlds largest and fastest growing media entertainment market space,” said Adela.

Adela also added, “I am looking forward to working with creative Chinese artists to animate The Corporate Circus and bring its story and characters, with universal appeal, to life. I thank Attorney Michael Polin, ITA and their stellar and prestigious Chinese partners for this great opportunity.”    

“We have been in China for many years and have cultivated significant business relationships and friendship with our Chinese strategic partners and associates, both private and Government. The animation and business partners on this project, BCCM, are top tier people and experienced animation developers. We are very enthusiastic about launching The Corporate Circus through multiple mediums,” said Attorney Polin.

The Corporate Circus multi-media licensing opportunities ranges from TV shows, publishing, computer games, greeting cards, corporate gifts, stationery products, apparel, toys, corporate training seminars and entertainment, and other media presentation and merchandising opportunities. The Corporate Circus has premiered at the New York Licensing International Show, London Brand Show, PPAI/ASI Shows in Las Vegas, including the 2004 NATPE boot camp and received favorable responses from industries professionals.
