1 The Rebel Angel Investment Opportunity Presented by Envisage Entertainment
2 THE REBEL ANGEL A Jungle Cinema ™ Production PROPOSAL FOR INVESTMENT PARTNER Award-winning filmmaker and music producer Frank Fitzpatrick is seeking a financial partner for the continued development and production of a uniquely positioned animated entertainment property, THE REBEL ANGEL. Project Description: More than just a film, THE REBEL ANGEL is a multi-platform entertainment franchise for the teen and young adult market that combines provocative story telling and a positive message through the use of engaging characters, vivid imagery and an enhanced musical soundtrack. THE REBEL ANGEL brings the familiar images of the growing music and dance cultures, along with the distinctive look of cutting edge comic book artists, to both the Silver Screen and directly to the consumer’s hands (via their iPod, cell phone, PC, etc.) for the very first time. Driven by a sound sensation that is already taking the world’s youth by storm - from nightlife of Ibiza and New York to the cultural centers of South America, Europe & Asia - and enhanced with a new emotion-intensifying technology, THE REBEL ANGEL is the beginning of a new concept in animated entertainment positioned to effectively appeal to the hearts and minds of a global 15 - 30 year old target market.
3 Filmmaker Mission: The purpose of making THE REBEL ANGEL is three fold: I.To launch a lucrative entertainment franchise of animative storytelling that capitalizes on proven models and new opportunities to attract teenage and young adult audiences. II. To become an integrated part of the target audience ’ s lives by reaching out across multiple distribution platforms (film, TV, video games, cell phones, music). This will also maximize market penetration and minimize risk. III. To deliver meaningful and provocative content to teenagers and young adults by using characters and images from a world they have grown to love, without exploiting negative language, misleading stereo types or unnecessary violence. Social Impact: In a time when the target audience is bombarded with shows, films and games that lack substantive stories and decent identifiable role models,THE REBEL ANGEL can break through with the edge, look, and sound they crave. While being thoroughly engaged and entertained, the viewers will vicariously move through our heroine ’ s journey and transformation, without ever feeling a message is being imposed upon them.
4 Market Penetration: As part of the award-winning Jungle Cinema film series, THE REBEL ANGEL is one of the first animated US productions targeting the 15 – 30 year old demographic with the style and ability to penetrate every area of their entertainment lifestyle. The film ’ s content is designed for release in multiple platforms including theatrical, television, video games, multi-media events, cell phones, portable media players, DVDs, CDs, internet, in-flight entertainment, electronic billboards, merchandizing, and Immersive Entertainment Environments for nightclubs and concert venues. The Music Factor: THE REBEL ANGEL animated short includes original recordings with the National Symphony of Venezuela, Trance-Opera Diva Sasha Lazard (EMI Records), DJ Spooky, Delerium, DJ Styles (Delinquent Habits), Jazz (Dru Hill), and Grammy Award Winner Andy Vargas (Santana). Two of the songs from the film have already made their mark on the Billboard Dance Charts, including Awakening, which entered the Hot Club Picks at #3. The film ’ s creator, a master in the shaping of human emotion through music and image, continues to work with top recording artists (Jill Scott, K-Ci & Jojo, Ice Cube) and prominent DJ ’ s from around the world. He will provide the same caliber of talent for THE REBEL ANGEL that has helped him to sell over 5 million soundtrack albums to date. Intensified Emotional Response: Using a new proprietary technology (ERI), the soundtrack is also imbedded with an inaudible program that is proven to intensify the emotional impact on the viewer.
5 Development and Production Strategy Phase I: During Phase I, an animated short film (10 min) of THE REBEL ANGEL will be completed for the 2006/2007 international film festival circuit. A video remix will also be featured at dance music festivals including the Winter Music Conference in Miami. Phase I matching funds will allow for the completion of additional assets necessary to enter the marketplace and secure Phase II partners. These include a series of one minute shorts for cell phones, portable media players and Internet, a feature film trailer, a music video, a theatrical screenplay and video prototypes to help secure a deal for a full length feature film, video game and TV series during Phase II. Upon completion of Phase I THE REBEL ANGEL will be presented to Hollywood studios, technology partners and corporate sponsors to secure a production and distribution deal, obtain additional investment capitol and establish strategic alliances for Phase II. Phase II: In Phase II, THE REBEL ANGEL will be produced and released as a feature film, television series and/or video game, complete with soundtrack album, music video and an Immersive Entertainment Experience. THE REBEL ANGEL will continue to be exploited over several short form platforms available through traditional and emerging technologies (cell phones, portable media players) and merchandizing opportunities..

7 Additional Investor Benefits: 1. 30% non-controlling ownership of THE REBEL ANGEL animated short film. 2. Credit on short film, feature film, soundtrack album and all credited advertising and packaging. 3. Invitations to, and participation in, any related screenings & events. BUDGET Revenue/Funding: Charitable Donations/sponsors (raised to date) $ 10,000 Capitol Investment by Filmmaker $ 115,000 Private Investment Partner(s) (To be raised) $125,000 Total Revenue/Funding $ 250,000 Film Funding Continued

9 Risks and Opportunities Risks: Based on average success rates of new films entering the marketplace, this is a high risk investment for both Envisage Entertainment and the investing partner. Opportunities: Animated Films continue to garnish a larger share of box office revenue and have become mainstream entertainment for all ages. Even the coveted Academy Awards have been affected by 3D animation (Finding Nemo won Best Picture in 2005), 2D (Triplets of Bellville nominated in 2005) and Anime (Spirited Away won for Best Animated Film in 2003). With further cross-platforming between video games, properties like Tomb Raider have become franchises with gross receipts in excess of one billion dollars.The first six animated titles to come out of Pixar generated combined box office revenues of $1.5 billion, and nearly doubled that figure with additional video/DVD sales and rentals. At the same time the US and world markets for 2D Anime and Manga have continued to grow at an accelerating rate since the early 1990’s. In addition, annual sales figures for the US video game market are approaching $20 billion. In 2004, more than 248 million computer and video games were sold, almost two games for every household in America. A best selling game will sell 1 - 4 million copies worldwide. A best selling franchise can reach over 20 million copies sold worldwide In Summary: Although worse-case-scenario is near total loss of Phase I investment, the ultimate upside potential for the investor, if The Rebel Angel becomes a Tomb Raider-level franchise, is 25% of Envisage Entertainment’s net revenues on a potential $1 billion plus in gross sales. And there are many levels of success in-between.
