China Fortune Land Development Co., Ltd. (CFLD) today held a press conference and signing ceremony to officially unveil two Hollywood partners at the Dachang Film and Media Industrial Park. CFLD signed strategic cooperation agreements with two Hollywood companies, Relativity Education, represented by President Glenn Kalison and Asia Partner Bradley Hong, and BASE FX. Chinese film and media companies, talent agencies, film institutes and investors attended the event.
In keeping with its core developing principle, "an industrial park represents an industrial cluster," CFLD has distinguished itself as one of the leading operators of industry sector-based urban towns in China. CFLD is committed to promoting talent in the movie and creative industry while leveraging its value chain to introduce, integrate and grow the industry.
"Echoing the rapid development of China's entertainment industry in recent years, attention has turned to fostering growth of movie and TV talent as well as advancing elements of post-production and special effects," said Hu Zhenyu, Vice President of CFLD. "The Dachang Film and Media Industrial Park will join hands with leading Hollywood institutions to promote industry standards and contribute to China's rapidly-developing movie, TV and online video industries. By creating an industrial park that welcomes both established companies and aspiring entrepreneurs, the Dachang Film and Media Industrial Park will attract leading companies, encourage industry players to come together, and tap into opportunities in the value chain." The Dachang Film and Media Industrial Park is considered a crown jewel of the entertainment industry. Its expansive property includes eight functional zones for talent development, innovative workshops, high-tech productions, post-production and special effects, digital experiences and set design, R&D, and themed experiences. Driven by its goal to innovate and internationalize, the Dachang Film and Media Industrial Park strives to integrate various players in the film industry and become a pioneer of cultural and creative industrial parks around the world.
New landmark in the creative and cultural industry
Situated 30 km to the east of Beijing's Central Business District (CBD), the Dachang Film and Media Industrial Park is located next to the Chaobai River, the longest river in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region. The strategic location and picturesque environment attract investors to the property.
With support from Relativity Education, an education company focused on the entertainment industry, and BASE FX, a professional post-production and special effects company, the Dachang Film and Media Industrial Park will gradually upgrade its residential and service facilities to include classrooms, apartments, and transportation options. Furthermore, it will set up a "strategic committee," a movie and media talent pool, as well as a talent development management center. With its international vision and innovative aspirations, the Dachang Film and Media Industrial Park will continue to attract leading companies and welcome other Chinese and foreign professional movie and media production companies and training schools.
Leading international players to upgrade local industry
Following the signing of the strategic cooperation agreement, Relativity Education is the first film and media training company to join the Dachang Film and Media Industrial Park under the "talent development" program. Together with CFLD, the two companies will grow and develop the next generation of elite movie and media professionals in China as well as create high quality projects.
As the only international training school in China anchored by a Hollywood studio, Relativity Education will offer a complete movie and media curriculum that focuses on training international screenwriters, directors, and producers. Experienced teachers from the United States specializing in media training will create tailor-made courses. Hollywood experts and creative talent will also be invited to teach classes and workshops.
BASE FX is a world-renowned post-production, special effects and animation studio. It is one of the first special effects companies in the industry to come to the Dachang Film and Media Industrial Park as a strategic partner of CFLD. BASE FX looks to further expand its team and contribute to building a world-class training center to educate post-production and special effects professionals in China.
