The Corporate Circus, Inc. and Shanghai TianYu Technology Development, Co. sign a cooperation agreement to launch The Corporate Circus properties as Business “Education-Entertainment” animation project in China.

Henderson, Nevada – The Corporate Circus (“TCC”), the original and innovatively creative fantasy style corporate satire book-based property, written and created by Adela JP (pen name of Adela Josue Polin, MBA), has signed a multi-media cooperation deal with Shanghai Tianyu Technology Development Co., Ltd. (“TianYu”). This cooperation will launch The Corporate Circus properties as a business “education-entertainment” animation project to teach western business concepts, principles, techniques, English, workplace stress relief (using office play, fun and humor), employee motivation/inspiration/self-help, and other related matters to business professionals and academia in China.

The terms of this non-exclusive cooperation deal are multi-faceted which includes, but not limited to animation (shorts, television shows, feature film), media (television, cell phones and Internet), merchandising, publishing, corporate seminars and business management training, computer and digital games, live entertainment, corporate shows, and licensing.

TianYu also has extensive relationships in China business management schools (www.ceibs.edu), and is a current member of the internationally recognized Shanghai Multimedia Industry Association (http://www.xmedia.org.cn/company/index.php), a non-profit organization consisting of individual and organizational members involved in the creation, production, and study of multimedia and related fields.

Adela Josue Polin, Founder and President of The Corporate Circus, Inc. (www.thecorporatecircus.com), is an MBA whose corporate experience led to the writing and creation of “The Corporate Circus” as an entertainingly satiric look at corporate life. The Corporate Circus consists of 15 unique office humor characters, currently in the form of collectible plush dolls satirizing the workplace. These characters come alive in a fantasy-style tongue-in-cheek corporate satire book titled, “The Corporate Circus – a fairy tale soap opera on office life” and are illustrated in a colorful comical corporate hierarchy poster titled “The Org Chart.” The book has received a five Star rave review from Midwest Book Review stating it as “humorous, witty and engagingly presented…a highly recommended reading!”

Adela founded The Corporate Circus, Inc. to market and license worldwide the TCC properties, i.e. characters, brand, trademark, artwork, book and concept. The Corporate Circus Inc., an American Company, headquartered in Henderson, Nevada, USA, owns all intellectual property rights, including copyrights, patents, and trademarks, artworks, illustrations, designs and books involving The Corporate Circus.

“The beauty of The Corporate Circus is that it takes complex business issues (e.g. organizational behavior and other business related matters), simplifies and presents them through animation that is visual, fun and humorous. Further, TCC characters, concept and story have many advantages, such as universal, global appeal, entertaining, educational, therapeutic (through office play and humor), thought provoking and profound. The business applications of TCC are extensive as an entertainment and/or educational project,” said Adela.

The first launch of the “edutainment” project will be through publication of The Corporate Circus book in English and Chinese localized for the China business culture. This will be followed shortly by publication of new business teaching books and other related subjects matters using The Corporate Circus characters. Promotion of TCC books, concept and brand will be through an “infomercial” animation using shorts films to introduce The Corporate Circus 15 office humor characters in their corporate settings.

TianYu’s Internet portal (http://www.tianyu.com.cn), media, MBA association and other business relationships will be utilized as a medium to expose and educate the China target market about The Corporate Circus business “edutainment” concept. Both parties intend to bring in their extensive media and business relationships to explore all The Corporate Circus multi-media business entertainment and educational opportunities.
