HOLLYWOOD, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 24, 2014) - Big Screen Entertainment Group (PINKSHEETS: BSEG) recently held its first annual Board of Directors meeting. BSEG is pleased to announce the addition of two new board members, one of which will assume the position of Chairman of the Board. The new board members bring significant experience, leadership, and success in business, finance, and creative endeavors.

First Appointee and Chairman of the Board:
Mr. Jiang is a prominent Los Angeles businessman and entrepreneur who serves on several boards. He has extensive experience in financing and shares BSEG Chief Executive Officer Kimberley Kates' vision of expansion and growth domestically and overseas. His leadership and dedication has successfully taken small cap companies to the next trading tier. He not only has strong working relationships with companies and financial institutions overseas, but also in the U.S. He has long held an interest in the entertainment industry and in expanding American productions into Asian film and television markets. 

BSEG anticipates that the addition of Mr. Jiang as Chairman of the Board will have a highly significant impact upon entry into Asian markets and in the launch of joint productions overseas. His efforts and activities have already assisted CEO Kimberley Kates in initiation of several large, scale projects consistent with BSEG's philosophy of growth.

Second Appointee:

Lee, MD is the co-founder and Chief Medical Officer of Halt Medical, Inc., and inventor of the Acessa procedure, a safe and effective minimally invasive surgery for the treatment of uterine fibroid tumors.

Dr. Lee's father, a prominent Los Angeles Attorney, George S. Lee, was President and Founder of the Southern California Chinese Lawyers Association and one of the key members who assisted in the creation of East-West Bank of Los Angeles, CA. With a parallel interest in entertainment, Dr. Lee has served on multiple boards for over 25 years, has been an executive producer on several films and is a talented composer. He assisted CEO Kimberley Kates in development of the Training Video Education Division with medical companies of BSEG and will work to develop and expand activities in this large potential market.
