I attended TIFFCOM ( Tokyo International Film Festival ).Its a marketplace for building networks and get closer insights especially from the creative contents industry.
The Malaysian delegate lead by Finas and Emdec consists of companies including Animation Studios, Game Developers, Post Productions and Broadcasters.
Our main objective from this trade mission was to acquire Co-Production opportunities with Japanese companies. Besides that we also looking for Pre Sale and Worldwide Distributors for our two Animation series.
The organizer , GCMA had a pre arranged programme and meetings with a few top animation studios and broadcasters in Tokyo.A chance of a lifetime which could only be possible through goverment initiative.
It was a close encounter and indepth understanding especially in the perspective of animation production in comparison with Japanese counterpart.
I personally had a great knowledge especially in the different approach and style in animation productions and also the diversified marketing strategies.
Merchandising and Brand Licensing are the key elements for their worldwide business acknowledgement. Looking back from my own perspective its not that hard to follow their footstep.
Even though the Japanese Anime is standing tall compared to our local Animation industry but I do believe we could rub shoulders in many ways.
It was a meaningful visit to Tokyo and I’m very excited and look forward for a colourful future insyaallah. So till then my dear friends Domo Arigato Gozaimas’ta and Sayonara !
