Cannes, France -- Cameron Thomson President and Huallywood Film Studios CEO Ron Thomson and Huallywood Director of Sales & Marketing Arthur Chu arrived in Cannes earlier this week to finalize multiple deals for Huallywood, Asia's centre of excellence for film & TV.
As the first visit for Huallywood to the Cannes Film Festival, Ron Thomson joined panel discussions and headlined key events to share Huallywood's unique formula as a soft landing in Asia for foreign productions, and launching pad for high-quality Asian content.
Bre-X: The Untold Story
CEO Ron Thomson formally announced that Huallywood's first foreign production will begin twenty-six days of principal shooting in Taipei and the film studio's surrounding jungle alongside the east cost of Taiwan in August.
Myriad Pictures is onboard to distribute the film internationally, and casting announcements are upcoming.
Bre-X is the untold true story of Canada's largest mining fraud, and spans location from the Borean jungle to the Toronto stock exchange. It is written and directed by renowned Hollywood producer Scott Rosenfelt, and benefits from Huallywood's unique offering of financing, technical services, and a reliable Asian location eager to attract foreign productions.
Huallywood Ecosystem Partners
CEO Ron Thomson was also proud to announce that Rome-based Augustus Colour, the undisputed leader in film recovery and remastering, will be joining the Huallywood ecosystem. Augustus's world-class know-how and technology will be a major advancement for the Asian film & TV community, and unlock the potential of archival footage vaulted throughout the region.
The Huallywood team also joined with ecosystem partner Swiss-based WCP Media to announce WCP's new cloud-based file sharing technology for network operators throughout Asia and the world. This new technology is a key competitive advantage for Huallywood as distribution and consumption of content shifts to mobile, SVOD, and OTT platforms.
