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 

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 

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 list.

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.
