Screen Daily ~ Asian Film Finance 2008 – Korea opportunities

“Economic motivation to create employment, coupled with a cultural policy to develop national cinema, spurred the government to create several film funds through the Small and Medium Business Corporation (SBC) and the Korean Film Council (KOFIC).”

“The film industry needs to develop an investment analysis system, and overhaul the profit-sharing structure for film funds to be attractive to non-strategic partners.”

“It’s not as if there are so many good scripts but no money.”

“The axis of the market is moving away from just trying to add to your local slate or produce for shareholders and towards investing in good, solid content.”

About the author

Woitek Konzal

Producer, Consultant, Lecturer & Researcher. I love working where technology meets media in novel ways. Once, I even won an Emmy for digital innovation doing that. Be it for a small but exciting campaign about underground electronic music collectives or for a monster project combining two movies, various 360° videos, 72 ARG-like mini puzzles, and a Unity game, all wrapped up in one cross-platform app – I have proven my ability to adapt to what is required. This passion for novel technologies has regularly allowed me to cross paths with tech startups – an industry and philosophy I am all set to engage with more. I intensely enjoy balancing out my practical work with academic research, teaching, and consulting. Also, I have a PhD in Creative Industries, a M.Sc. in Business Administration, and love to kitesurf.
