We are sharing our interview with Joseph Collins CEO of Punch TV Studios.
Pro Media Mag : Did you get some particular experience or education before coming into this profession?
Joseph Collins : I have been working in the entertainment industry since I was 16 years old. I was once the youngest news reporter in America when I interned at WVTV in Milwaukee. Since then I have learned through a hands on approach, from mentors in entertainment and extensive research.
Pro Media Mag : When was Punch TV Studios launched and any reason behind naming it ‘Punch TV Studios’?
Joseph Collins : Punch TV Studios grew out of the initial concept which was Punch TV Network over 8 years ago. Punch TV Studios allows the company to do more than broadcast produced content, but to produce, distribute, syndicate and monetize content to a global audience, as well as allow our viewing audience to become shareholders in the company through our recent launch of our Initial Public Offering (IPO) at just $1.00 per share. The JOBS Act was signed into law by President Barack Obama and has allowed our company to sale stock to the general public, instead of to just accredited investors.
Pro Media Mag : Punch TV Studios is available worldwide or limited to some particular region or community?
Joseph Collins : Punch TV Studios is available to anyone and everyone.
Pro Media Mag : Have ever thought something like JOBS Act will happen?
Joseph Collins : I never thought that something like the JOBS Act would happen, but what I did know what that some how, some way we were going to take Punch TV Studios public. I did not want to just have a private company. My dream; my vision was to develop movies from stories that ordinarily would never get told, and I wanted the public to be a part of that vision.
