BREAKING NEWS - CYPM Acquires Profitable Joongang Movie Entertainment...CYPM To 
Compete With Pixar & Disney

NEW YORK---PRIMEZONE---Cyper Media, Inc. (OTCBB: CYPM), a 3D animation studio 
currently producing ``The 5th Glacial Epoch,''

a 15 million dollar feature, has acquired Joongang Movie Entertainment Co., 
Ltd., a producer of animated content for the

world-famous Pokemon series. Joongang is a profitable 13-year-old animation 
company with more than 60 different clients among

OEM Japanese TV shows, and which also has numerous clients in Europe.

Duk Jin Jang, CEO of Cyper said, ``Cyper will now be able to offer our combined 
clients traditional 2D along with 3D

animation content, enabling the Company to compete profitably with world class 
animators such as Pixar and Disney.''


We are very excited about our newest stock profile, Cyper Media, Inc. (OTCBB: 
CYPM).  Not only has CYPM received a

conditional commitment letter for 4 million of the 15 million dollar production 
budget for its CGI Animation Feature, "The

5th Glacial Epoch," it has also entered into a commitment for a 5 million 
dollar advance from an electronic game publisher.

The money for its latest venture seems to be pouring in, but mere financing is 
just the beginning.

The really big news is that CYPM has started the process of getting a 
distribution contract with MGM, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.

The 4 million dollar commitment letter from Global Marine is subject to a 
letter of a conditional Distribution Letter from a

major distributor, which CYPM has now secured.

Cyper Media  is looking to become a leading producer of 3D digital animation 
entertainment products for the world broadcast

entertainment market.

Cyper Media develops and produces 3D digital animation for television, short 
films, CGI feature films, home video, music

video and multi-media applications such as video games. Cyper Media produces 3D 
digital animation by applying advanced

hardware and software technology using computer systems throughout the 
production process.


The Company intends to exploit the licensing and merchandising of its 
proprietary characters in order to generate revenue and

to highten the popularity of its characters and programs. By licensing its 
proprietary characters to select manufacturers and

distributors of consumer products such as toys, apparel, school supplies, house 
wares and books, the Company seeks to capture

a portion of the growing licensing and merchandising market which features 
entertainment properties, such as animated

characters.  In 1995, this segment of the merchandising and licensing market 
had retail sales in the United States and Canada

in excess of 16 billion dollars.


The demand for animation programming and the business of animation production 
have expanded dramatically over the past

decade. The revival of Disney's feature animation production in the 1990s, and 
the advent of new entrants like Paramount and

DreamWorks SKG, have produced some of the biggest ever box office hits.

The television market has also expanded, offering producers a voracious and 
lucrative market. Thanks to programs like The

Simpsons and South Park, animation has started to become a staple element of 
prime-time television programming.  Animation is

an attractive investment because of its longevity, its ability to travel, and 
the potential to create ancillary revenue

streams from home video, publishing, toys and other licensing activities.

As well, the Academy Awards now recognizes Animation in a major category all 
its own.


Typically a US made 22-minute television show costs between 300,000 to 800,000 
dollars to produce.  Cyper can produce the

same for a minimum of 80,000.  This means many U.S.-based producers of animated 
programming such as Film Roman now have to

subcontract some of the less creative and more labor-intensive components of 
its production process to animation studios

located in low-cost labor countries, such as Korea. As the number of animated 
feature films and animated television programs

expands, the demand for the services of overseas studios has expanded likewise. 
This demand may lead overseas studios to

raise their fees, which may result in a rise in production costs, or an 
inability to contract with the Company's preferred

overseas studios.


The list of Top Ten grossing animated movies is impressive.  The Lion King is 
at number one with a total gross of 312.8

million dollars.  Shrek brings up second place with a whopping 267.6 million, 
and Monsters, Inc. takes third with 255.3

million.  The other seven rounding out the list post an impressive Billion-plus.

But the most recent animated feature that comes to mind is playing in theaters 
now.  "Finding Nemo," sold about 70.6 million

worth of tickets in its first three days, setting a new opening record for a 
cartoon, surpassing the 62.5 million bow of

"Monsters, Inc." in November 2001. And although Nemo is a Walt Disney 
production, Disney no longer has a monopoly on animated

features.  In fact, of the Top 10 grossing animated features of all time, 4 are 
Walt Disney productions while Pixar, a

newcomer in comparison, also has 4, with Fox and DreamWorks rounding out the 

But earnings for such movies don't stop at the box office.  Just the 
opposite--they are only beginning.  Merchandising from

these movies, everything from lunch boxes to video games to DVD sales, from 
Wal-mart to McDonald's to Burger King, range in

the billions of dollars--and never forget about the impending sequels.  Sales 
are huge, and CYPM through Cyper (now with

financing on the way and MGM on their side) is poised to make the climb to the 
top.  It's only a matter of time.
