Visual Industries' Subsidary, Sterling Worldwide Entertainment, Partners With Lighthouse Press

PENNINGTON, NJ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 20, 2007 -- Visual Industries, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: VUAL) announces today that its subsidiary, Sterling Worldwide Entertainment (SWE), has partnered with The Lighthouse Press, Inc. to form Sterling-Lighthouse Publishing. Under the terms of the deal SWE will produce, market, and create content for film, television, home entertainment, and theater using materials developed and published by Sterling-Lighthouse Publishing.

Kira Baskerville-Williams, CEO of Sterling Worldwide Entertainment, asserts, "The joint venture with The Lighthouse Press, Inc. is a great addition to SWE. It allows us access to great literary content for distribution as well as for producing television and film projects."

An example of this great literary content can be found in the first book to be distributed under the new deal, "The Wayfarers" by Stuart Tower. This extensively researched work of historical fiction tells the story of courageous, organized groups of young Jews defiantly protesting the sheer hopelessness of life under harsh totalitarian rule, while "marching to America," and trekking to ports across the dangerously anti-Semetic, xenophobic Europe of the early 1900's.

The book has already garnered prestigious admirers such as Steven Spielberg, who states, "In today's fast-paced electronic society, plain old-fashioned, captivating, story telling is rare. In 'The Wayfarers,' Stuart Tower has done just that."

"The Wayfarers" is being translated into several languages with negotiations underway to distribute the novel throughout Israel in both English and Hebrew. Currently the book is available at leading book stores. A docudrama based on the book is being prepared by Yale Strom, the internationally recognized documentarian.

When asked for comment on the deal regarding "The Wayfarers" and other titles, Lighthouse Press publisher Ron Richard said, "It's a natural fit, The Lighthouse Press, Inc. has a sister company in Lighthouse Entertainment, LLC. This company is in the early stages of producing film content based upon the extensive backlist of fiction titles published by The Lighthouse Press, Inc., this new venture with SWE is in keeping with the goal of providing new ideas to an ever-increasing world population that has an insatiable demand for knowledge, information and entertainment."

Sterling Worldwide Entertainment's goal is to generate diversity in the entertainment arts through the projects it develops. Film, television and theater conception and production, publishing, artist management and instructional DVD's are just some of the projects Sterling Worldwide Entertainment is creating.
