Under the framework of Tripartite Economic Alliance between Guangzhou, Auckland and Los Angeles, a new alliance focusing on film and animation will be officially established later this year, said Xu Hui, Deputy Director of Sino-Singapore Guangzhou Knowledge City (SSGKC), in an interview with Newsgd.com recently.

Moreover, benefiting from increasing international projects, a mass of foreign enterprises, especially those from the US and New Zealand, have their sights on SSGKC and have started cooperating with the region.

For instance, SSGKC has been in contact with Weta Workshop, a famous New Zealand-based special effects and prop company who came to the world’s attention with director Peter Jackson's film trilogy The Lord of the Rings, producing the sets, costumes, armour, weapons, creatures and miniatures. Sir Richard Leslie Taylor, the founder of Weta, has visited Guangzhou and SSGKC when cooperating on projects several times before. This year Sir Taylor will participate in the 2017 Tripartite Economic Summit in Guangzhou as a distinguished guest.

Guangdong Huawen Century Animation Company are also working on a co-produced animation named the WotWots Kiddets with the high-profile New Zealand animation studio, Pukeko Pictures, and this project will be rooted in the SSGKC.

Xu mentioned that a subsidiary company has been founded in the SSGKC to focus on a “culture+” strategy integrating tourism, investment, sports and business. In future, this company will deepen its cooperation with Los Angeles as well as Auckland, to take GZ based creative industry global.

“I see the three cities complementing each other especially in the culture industry, making a complete industrial chain. Hollywood is the world’s creative center while Auckland is famous for its post-production. And in Guangzhou, we have a huge market and some fast-developed technology teams” Xu added.
