Joseph Collins, CEO of Punch TV Studios, wants to give back to the community he once called home.
A resident of the streets of Los Angeles’ Skid Row over 20 years ago, Collins knows exactly what it feels like to be considered homeless. But homelessness did not stop this business mogul.
“I walked from 6th and Central Avenue to 109th and Central one way daily to gather the training available from an organization called WLCAC, which is known as the Watts Labor Community Action Committee. That is why my work ethic is so strong because I know the reality of being poor and struggling to eat,” states Collins.
Punch TV Studios is offering a mentorship opportunity for those in the homeless community who are interested in pursuing entertainment as a potential career.
Collins dreamed of making movies of stories that had never been told before as well as owning a major TV studio. Mr. Collins and his team at Punch TV Studios have successfully executed “a dream come true,” keeping the momentum toward developing movies.
“We are kickstarting a unique mentoring program the first quarter of 2018 for a selected amount of homeless who are interested in TV production, editing and overall movie development.”
“I know this will be a phenomenal opportunity to mentor others and provide employment because of our mentoring program,” says Collins.
“With the development and movement of our state-of-the art production studio to Santa Fe Springs, California, Punch TV Studios has the ability to foster mentoring positions and training – something that we have never done before,” says Collins.
Collins and his team of dedicated staff members have successfully launched several media platforms: a social media outlet, “Nabukie.com,” incorporated legendary “monster animators” Floyd Norman as President of Creative Development and Leo Sullivan as Chief Operating Officer of “Punch Animation, Inc. (OTCMKTS:URBT).”
The most recent and impressive accomplishment was the kickoff of Punch TV Studios’ Broad- casting Network on “KILM-Los Angeles” on August 1, 2017.
Punch TV Studios initiated the opening of its IPO to the public but is closing the doors of the final stages of the IPO (“IPO 2.0”) on October 4, 2017. Punch TV Studios is a multimedia television entity whose core business model is to license and distribute content to broadcasters and distributors all over the world. The studio consists of syndication, merchandising, production, licensing, broadcasting/network and music.
