French producer Philippe Diaz and financial executive Aaron Brill join Fight To Fame, blockchain-based sports entertainment platform

PARIS, 11-Sep-2019 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Fight To Fame, the first blockchain-based sports entertainment platform paving new paths to fame for action superstars, today announces Fight To Fame Europe, combining the search for up-and-coming action stars with a growing network of local media and entertainment partnerships. Fight To Fame is creating the future of sports entertainment, powered by a blockchain-based platform to fuel everything from global fan engagement to fair and more transparent monetization opportunities for fighters.

With the backing of world champions like South Africa’s Chris Van Heerden—and more to be announced—the company is leading a worldwide talent competition to uncover the next generation of best-in-breed fighters. The European expansion includes the appointment of two new executives who will play strategic roles in the entertainment and finance components of the platform.

French producer Philippe Diaz, Chairman of Cinema Libre Studio, joins Fight To Fame as Chief Executive Officer of Film Committee. In addition to his long legacy of international film production and distribution experience in Europe and Hollywood, Diaz will help bring Fight To Fame’s vision to life through a production partnership with Cinema Libre, an award-winning independent studio. Cinema Libre will help secure roles for Fight To Fame’s winners in upcoming action films, and ensure a strong distribution and marketing strategy to fast-track the new talent to stardom. “It’s incredibly exciting to take part in something so unprecedented—especially in my hometown of Paris. I’m looking forward to being part of the Fight To Fame journey, and launching new talent into the spotlight with films that can really showcase their skills,” said Diaz.

Aaron Brill joins Fight To Fame as Chairman of European Operations. Brill’s expertise in finance began at World Savings and Loan in the 1990s and has continued into some of the world’s largest financial institutions, including JP Morgan and Wells Fargo. He also was instrumental in growing one of the largest privately held wholesale mortgage banks in the US, with annual closings surpassing $3 billion. Said Brill, “I’m excited to join the Fight To Fame team and help realize their vision of the BMS—or Blockchain-Movies-Sports—business model. I’ve long believed in the power of blockchain to fuel the next great cultural revolution. Applications like that of Fight To Fame stand not only to transform how we conduct business, but how we come together as a global community to solve shared challenges.”

Said Tim Smithe, Spokesperson and Chairman of Global Operations for Fight To Fame: “We couldn’t be more pleased to welcome Philippe and Aaron to the Fight To Fame family, and harness their respective talents and expertise to realize our vision. They represent a veritable one-two punch in helping us highlight the next generation of Jackie Chans and Stallones and ensure our platform’s technology delivers on its intended benefits.”

Beyond the talent competition, Fight To Fame’s greater mission is to foster new opportunities for people around the world and from all walks of life. The company has also teased its plans for additional components to its business model, including a reality TV show, eSports gaming, and additional entertainment partnerships to be revealed at a later date.

This European expansion is a major milestone in growing the company’s global footprint as it prepares to kick off its search for the next big action film star in Europe.

Timu Launches Social Media Platform for Amateur Athletes and Sports Teams

Timu today announced the launch of its social media platform, specifically built to solve the communications problems encountered by amateur athletes, sports teams, and their fans.

According to Timu CEO Matt Heaton, “Existing social networks provide disjointed solutions that do not handle sports specific needs, such as player rosters, game results, and statistics. At the same time existing sports offerings provide almost none of the interactivity and engagement expected in today’s social media environment. Timu brings together the best of both worlds into one single platform”

Providing the opportunity to athletes, sport teams, and their fans to break down the current barriers to communication, Timu allows people to:

* Have a social network designed to suit the needs of amateur athletes and teams.
* Setup a Team Center to manage schedules, rosters, game results, statistics, and team news.
* Coordinate games and team events through a variety of communication tools.
* Create athlete profiles to highlight their sporting achievements.
* Share photo and video highlights online
* Use social media to interact with the athletic community online

No matter what sport, or at whatever level people play at, they can set up a profile or Team Center on Timu in minutes. Profiles can be customized with information about the their sports, their teams, and their competitive highlights. Photos and videos can be uploaded, and various “widgets” can be added or modified.

Timu also lets people interact as a team, not just an individual. Whether they’re a coach, player, parent, or fan; they can create a Team Center for their team at Timu. Team Centers provide many features like team news, schedules, player rosters, highlights and many communication tools. For softball and baseball they also include a powerful game results and statistics package, which we will be adding to the other sports shortly. All the people associated with the team can be invited to become members of the team center, which then functions as a hub for team communications.

The existing functionality provided on Timu is offered for free while Timu will generate revenue from a variety of future premium services, e-commerce and premium advertising. Timu plans develop the tools that amateur sports organizers desperately want to see executed effectively. From online stores for team paraphernalia and equipment, to the important, and never before well executed, online billing for sport team’s memberships.

About Timu
Timu launched in 2009 to provide a powerful social media platform to solve the problems encountered by amateur athletes and sports teams. Timu was founded by Matt Heaton, the former CEO and Co-Founder of ActiveRain Corp, the largest social network in the real estate industry.
