Producing film in China is unlike working in any other country in the world, with unique challenges of government restrictions, language and cultural differences, andn a profoundly different approach to basic business practices.
The relationships and partnerships we have forged at the highest levels of the industry and government pave the way for successful collaborations, whether it's a straight production, Assisted Co-Production, or an Official Co-Production.
