Makers of STEPN, take major leap with STEPN GO, a social-lifestyle app with new gaming token, GGT

STEPN

FSL, the global gaming and development studio behind web3 lifestyle app STEPN, NFT marketplace MOOAR, and social-strategy game Gas Hero, has officially announced the launch of STEPN GO. The new product is a social lifestyle app that rewards your daily movement and social interactions. Today marks an exciting milestone with the release of the STEPN GO Whitepaper and Tokenomic model. The game introduces a new token, GO GAME TOKEN (GGT), which users can earn by walking, jogging, and running with digital NFT Sneakers. There will also be a PvP game feature that allows users to earn GMT, the FSL Ecosystem token. The original STEPN app was launched in 2021 and remains the world’s leading ‘Move and Earn’ application, pioneering the genre of gamified web3 fitness applications. With over 5.6 million registered users and over 1 million Sneaker NFTs owned by players, STEPN achieved monumental success, acquiring a global community. STEPN has partnered with prolific brands over the years including ASICS, Steve Aoki, and most recently adidas. STEPN was also the first blockchain gaming app to integrate Apple Pay, creating a seamless onboarding experience for web2 native users. Yawn Rong, Co-Founder of FSL commented, “The STEPN community has been requesting social features within the app since the early days of STEPN. Therefore, we’re so excited to reveal these new features, which will propel STEPN GO into mainstream adoption. In addition to the Haus Mechanism and Interactive Map, we will also implement PvP elements within the app. Community is at the heart of everything we do at FSL, and we are ecstatic to announce this monumental milestone today, reinforcing our commitment to empowering and engaging our users.” Building on the success of STEPN, FSL has designed unique social features within STEPN GO. The first key social element is the ‘Haus System’, which is a lending system that allows users to share their Sneaker NFTs with friends and family members who are new to the app, and split their earnings. This system will enable easy onboarding for new users to enjoy the app and kickstart their fitness journey. Another unique feature will be the ‘Interactive Map’, which will allow users to see other players' avatars and even add them as friends within the platform. This Interactive Map will also allow users to drop messages that can be found by other players out doing STEPN GO runs. Jerry Huang, Co-Founder of FSL added, “With STEPN GO, anyone can onboard their friends and family to web3 without needing to create a wallet or even buy NFTs. Exercise will be more fun and rewarding. We will combine fitness with many enjoyable experiences, including having your own customizable avatars with unique outfits!” The Alpha Version of STEPN GO is set to launch by Q3 2024 with a Sneaker NFT Alpha Prize Draw lasting one month. A total of 3,000 Sneaker NFTs will be distributed within the app. To enter, users will be required to lock GMT. Access to the Alpha Prize Draw will be limited to FSL ID users, ensuring the most loyal FSL community members are rewarded. An additional 2,000 Sneakers will also be given away via the STEPN X account and STEPN GO Discord. Make sure to follow STEPN on X for your chance to win a Sneaker and gain early access. About STEPN GO Building on the success of STEPN, the pioneering move-and-earn platform, STEPN GO revolutionizes social fitness in everyday life.

Summer Camp & Your Child’s Mental Health

YourUpdateTV

A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/lE4NUj6i9ew Physical and mental health go hand in hand. This is as true for youth as it is for adults. And with summer camp season approaching, we once again ponder the impactful role that a camp experience plays in the lives of many children—an experience that often creates lifelong meaningful relationships and positively impacts mental wellness. Children born and living with serious illnesses can experience unimaginable stress. It is for this reason that the positive benefits of the camp are at the heart of SeriousFun Children’s Network, founded by Paul Newman. Thirty-five years ago, Paul Newman founded a camp where kids living with serious and life-limiting medical conditions could break away from the everyday challenges of their illness to discover new possibilities, and more about themselves. Today, Serious Fun Children’s Network, the leading network of medical specialty camps in the world, includes 30 camps and programs which have delivered more than 1.7 million life-changing camp experiences to kids living with a wide variety of serious medical conditions and their families, totally free of charge. A nationwide media tour was conducted on May 9th featuring Dr. Laura Blaisdell, Medical Advisor for SeriousFun Children’s Network. Topics that Dr. Laura Blaisdell discussed included: · The importance of prioritizing mental health for children at camp alongside physical and social health. · How camp can foster Positive Childhood Experiences and how the SeriousFun camp experience is different from other camp programs · Why providing positive childhood experiences is especially important for those children who face medical trauma.

FAYE DUNAWAY WRAPS FILMING ON JONATHAN BAKER’S ‘FATE THE MOVIE’ AHEAD OF CELEBRATORY MOMENT AT CANNES FOR HER HBO DOCUMENTARY ‘FAYE’

FATE

Baker Entertainment Group, a film production company led by visionary filmmaker Jonathan Baker, has announced Janet Montgomery as a young Faye Dunaway in “Fate The Movie”. Dunaway has just wrapped her role as Tilly, which spans an entire lifetime, bridging the character to life by the talents of both Dunaway and Montgomery into one central character. While the film is still in production, this marks a significant milestone in her legendary career as Dunaway heads to Cannes to screen her celebratory HBO documentary “Faye”. Highland Film Group will be on the ground selling “Fate The Movie” from writer-producer-director Jonathan Baker, making this his second to last film he’ll ever create. Janet Montgomery, playing Young Tilly, was cast out of hundreds of actors for this role. “She stepped in with beauty, love, and laughter to play a strong sophisticated soul which will illuminate the film. Once Janet listened to the music of the movie, Nessun Dorma, Nat King Cole's ‘Unforgettable’, and our original song “forever is yesterday” by singer songwriter Trease,” said Baker. “Out of all our cast members, Janet has worked the hardest to embody and challenge her character through Faye Dunaway and into her original performance of Young TIlly. Everyone is a muse in this movie for me as I step into every character as I bring them to life. With Janet's background and chemistry with Brandon Routh, this is an epic love story that will live on forever.” “I think he’s one of the important directors that we’re watching today. And I think it’s a really interesting film. He’s got a great cast, it’s an amazing script, and what drew me to the film is we’re all in a holistic retreat so that means maybe we’re not all there at the same time and it’s interesting from that point of view. I like him very much. And I'm glad to be in this film with him,” said Faye Dunaway in an interview with Vancouver Sun. Jonathan Baker stated, “Faye Dunaway is one of the greatest actors of our time. When I crafted her role in the film “Fate”, I could see no one else that could play that part better than her. With such respect and admiration, I had the pleasure to experience the brilliant performance of Faye Dunaway alongside Harvey Keitel in my film.” Synopsis: It takes a minute to find a special person and an entire lifetime to forget them. After a rescue mission gone wrong, a firefighter Sam Ellis (Brandon Routh) connects with a stranger from the past Tilly (Janet Montgomery) while he's healing at a rehabilitation center and is transported through time to find the only thing saving his soul, is his realization of true love. Jonathan Baker is producing “Fate The Movie” after being in development for five years, bringing a singular ambition and passion to creating this feature film.

JONATHAN BAKER’S ‘FATE THE MOVIE’ ADDS BRANDON ROUTH, MENA SUVARI, AND CHEECH MARIN TO THE CAST

FATE

Los Angeles, CA (May 13, 2024) - Baker Entertainment Group, a film production company led by visionary filmmaker Jonathan Baker, has announced the latest key additions to its ensemble cast for the upcoming feature "Fate The Movie", including Brandon Routh (“Superman Returns”, “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”), Mena Suvari (“Grace and Grit”, “American Beauty”), and Cheech Marin (“Cheech & Chong”, “From Dusk Till Dawn”). Production is underway in Vancouver with previously announced actors Academy Award-winner Faye Dunaway (“Bonnie & Clyde”, “Chinatown,” “Network”), Academy Award-nominee Harvey Keitel (“Bugsy”, "Reservoir Dogs", “Taxi Driver”), and Actor, Director, Writer, Andrew McCarthy (“The Blacklist,” “Orange is the New Black” and the upcoming documentary “Brats”). Highland Film Group is handling international rights, launching sales at the Marché du Cannes. “We’re honored to welcome Brandon Routh, Mena Suvari, and Cheech Marin to our extraordinary cast on “Fate The Movie”, which is going to be the second to last film I ever make,” said Jonathan Baker, producer, writer and director. “Their collective talent, along with the esteemed contributions of Hollywood Legends Faye Dunaway, Harvey Keitel, and Andrew McCarthy, adds immense depth to our film. With this dream cast, we’re thrilled to bring this epic love story to life in an unforgettable way.” Enthralled by smart storytelling and larger-than-life figures, “Fate The Movie” has secured the rights to Nat King Cole and his hit ‘Unforgettable’, acting as the north star in the film. The music partnership between Baker Entertainment Group and the Nat King Cole Foundation plays a large part of the film by portraying a new “character” on the project. “'Unforgettable' is not just a song in our film; it's a beacon, guiding audiences through the emotional journey of the film. I'm honored to have the Foundation's endorsement, and I look forward to paying tribute to him through the film”. Synopsis: It takes a minute to find a special person and an entire lifetime to forget them. After a rescue mission gone wrong, a firefighter Sam Ellis (Brandon Routh) connects with a stranger from the past Tilly, while he's healing at a rehabilitation center and is transported through time to find the only thing saving his soul, is his realization of true love. Leading the cast in “Fate The Movie” is Superman himself Brandon Routh, continuing his excellent run of recent projects. Routh was handpicked from hundreds of actors and Jonathan was passionate from the beginning that Brandon was the only actor who could bring this role to life. “His dashing good looks, comedic timing, and charm are unmatched. Brandon will help connect audiences to the story of ‘Fate The Movie’ as the world falls in love with him and our movie,” said Jonathan Baker. In Mena, Jonathan was inspired by “Grace & Grit”, blown away by her range and instincts as an actor. “Her complicated character, and the emotional undertaking required for such a key role could only be achieved by someone of Mena’s stature and experience.” Jonathan is also excited to welcome the iconic Cheech Marin as a pivotal character, drawing inspiration from comedic actors playing against type such as Dave Chappelle in Bradley Cooper’s ‘A Star Is Born’ and the late Don Rickles in ‘Casino.’ Jonathan believes “Cheech will stand out, bringing charisma and wit to an important role”. “Fate” also includes Sienna Soho Baker who rejoins her father for the first time since she was 4 years old, playing opposite Nicholas Cage in “Inconceivable.” James Van Patten rounds out the cast with over 40 movies under his belt including the “Saw” franchise and “Inconceivable”, where he previously worked with Jonathan. The son of the late Dick Van Patten, James comes from Hollywood royalty and is excited to join the cast. Jonathan Baker is producing “Fate The Movie” after being in development for five years, bringing a singular ambition and passion to creating this feature film. ### Contact Details Jive PR + Digital Jordan Parlee jordan@jiveprdigital.com Company Website https://www.bakerentertainmentgroup.com
