Industry experts predict that by the year 2020, China will surpass the USA as the biggest market for cinema and television entertainment. With Chinese companies requiring writers who understand their market and audiences, any forward-thinking writer owes it to him/herself to keep Chinese audiences in mind when considering a screenplay’s odds of getting produced.
This critical panel discussion will:
- Explore the differences between domestically-produced Chinese drama versus productions aimed at an international audience.
- Examine how to satisfy Chinese audiences and censors, including the no-go areas and cultural nuances that writers need to understand.
- Reveal how YOU can write a script that suits the Chinese market.
With a panel who are currently writing series and features for China, this session will provide the most up-to-the-second insights into this exciting opportunity.
