A delegation from the Tianjin Binhai Hi-Tech Industrial Development Area, led by Jihui Yin, Chairman of the administrative commission, visited Hanhai Studio on May 18. Delegation members discussed the U.S.-China cultural creative industry with Kelly Zhang, COO of Hanhai Studio.
The Tianjin Binhai Hi-Tech Industrial Development Area is a national innovation demonstration area. It is an important strategic backup for the collaborative development of the cities of Beijing and Tianjin, along with Hebei province.
Delegation members were very interested in the operational approaches and techniques of Hanhai Studio as a cultural creative incubator. They welcomed Hanhai Studio to develop project match-ups between Tianjin and the U.S. Jihui Yin remarked, “Hanhai Studio’s pattern has many advantages. It provides a zero-distance platform for Chinese companies that want to expand their overseas markets.”
In the discussion, Jihui Yin mentioned that the film base is expected to be completed in the Tianjin Binhai Hi-Tech Development Area within three years. It is a one-hour drive from downtown Beijing. There will be digital studios and post-production companies located in the film base.With a comprehensive business chain, the new film base will bring together domestic resources as well as foreign companies.
Kelly Zhang also invited Tianjin Binhai Hi-Tech Industrial Development Area to attend the Hollywood Entertainment Technology Festival, which Hanhai is hosting in Los Angeles later this year, to promote communication and collaboration in the film tech industry.
