Fresh takes China

We'€™re passionate about making feature docs and films for a theatrical audience, and helping you make yours.

We have helped produce several acclaimed feature documentaries in China, and we know how much sweat and tears go into them: additional research and development, longer lead times, all on budgets that are often very tight. We take pride in making the process smoothand the results incredible.

For feature films, we act as a bridge between China and the West, to help you find the perfect co-pro partners. Our unique blend of China know-how and international experience is key to making your co-production happen.
