This virtual experience will revolutionize how producers, directors, writers and actors present their projects and their talent to film, television and music companies. As a part of Pinnacle Virtual Film Studios, there will be production/office spaces, also known as bungalows, for over 50 independent film and television companies that are lining up to work with other film and television producers and collaborators, to present and screen their projects. This virtual film studio will also offer a safe place where members can learn, grow and collaborate, like they would in a physical office.

"We are so excited to collaborate with VirBELA and their team to develop the first-ever 'Virtual Film Studio,'" said Stephen Brown, CEO of Appreciated Media. "VirBELA's platform and their robust features are perfect for Pinnacle, a division of Appreciated Media, to integrate the virtual film studio that we have been developing. There are many potential points of revenue within the virtual studio, and now with this partnership, we hope that it will be up and running within the next 60 days."

Pinnacle Film Studio is coming at a critical time for the film industry, which is facing a $5 billion loss as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. This new offering from VirBELA and Appreciated Media will offer tremendous value to the entertainment industry, providing unprecedented savings while still delivering the highest level of content in film, music, television and theatrical performances.

"We are thrilled to be able to offer Appreciated Media a safe platform and community to continue their business," said VirBELA Founder and President Alex Howland. "VirBELA allows businesses like Appreciated Media to continue to serve their community of producers, directors, writers and actors to learn, grow and collaborate in a safer environment while helping to minimize person-to-person contact."

Some design elements of Pinnacle Virtual Film Studios will feature an old Hollywood-themed space. In addition, there will be a modern Hollywood feel throughout the bungalows, where film and television companies will conduct private interviews with the producers, writers and stars of their upcoming projects.
