Film Prospects From Korea Excellent

Film Prospects From Korea Excellent Says Korea / New Zealand Business Council Chairman (May 21, 2001)

Korean film companies are interested in using New Zealand’s high-tech film postproduction facilities and range of outstanding locations, reports Mr Michael Stephens, film industry lawyer and Korea/New Zealand Business Council chairman, following his return from Korea in conjunction with the Prime Minister's official visit last week.

“The prospects for location shooting and post production work from Korea are excellent, as they are impressed with our combination of cost advantage and quality work”. Mr Stephens, also a director of The Film Unit (Australasia's most comprehensive film postproduction facility), said many Korean film companies regularly undertake postproduction work in Australia, and were pleasantly surprised to learn New Zealand had a better cost structure and level of postproduction technology, particularly with the high tech infrastructure put in place to service such projects as "The Lord of the Rings” trilogy and "Vertical Limit". “New Zealand now offers facilities as good as anything, anywhere; it is great this is now being recognized internationally”.

Michael Stephens is working with TradeNZ and Film New Zealand to attract Asian filmmakers here for both film postproduction and joint ventures.
