There is a Hollywood, a Bollywood, and now, speculation within China film industry insiders is that soon there will be a Chinllywood. The State Administration of Radio, Film and Television (SARFT) has set its goals high: within 5 years, it targets China to be the top filming destination, to have the largest filming studios (by square meters) and to have the top filming gross box office receipts for Asia. With more and more films and television programs made in China, and a good portion of the world’s post-production work already being done in China by Chinese workers, China’s film industry is experiencing phenomenal growth. Writers, directors, filmmakers, actors, producers, cinematographers, songwriters, recording artists, stage professionals, pre- and post-production companies, graphic design companies and many others have already set up or have considered setting up offices and production facilities in China.

We pride ourselves in offering that personal touch and service to the entertainment industry because we realize that success in this difficult industry requires a very personal and hands-on approach to problem solving.
