The winner of Armenia StartUp Cup Challenge 2015

HY PICTURES is a film and media production company. Our new initiative is production of web-comics and interactive content based on Armenian and Western Armenian literary works.

The project went through intensive development at Armenia Startup Cup. During this stage we added new directions to the project, clarified our financial plans, estimations and further expansion strategy.

Winning at the Startup Cup was very exciting for our team. During these three months we almost completed the production and translation of all the comics. Our website is ready and will be launched within the next 1-2 months. Waiting for green light from the donor organization.

The completed product allows us to move to the next stage – finalizing negotiations with partners for sales in different territories.

Another stage of our production is design and creation of dolls of our comic-book characters. We are now in the process of producing prototypes. The dolls will go to market several months after the comic book release.

One of the most important news is developing a new innovative approach to producing and distributing comic books, which we will present at upcoming competitions and startup events. Combining the results of pilot project and the new innovative approach HY PICTURES will be able to offer attractive investment possibilities to potential investors.

Until then, we keep on working hard at HY PICTURES and will welcome everyone on www.nola.lan soon.wallpaper
