The energy of the unique script virtually always determines the standard of the finished product. This is why we get the entire group involved, to pitch ideas and vote on the best piece in the first place.

It in all probability means investing in Hollywood or Chinese initiatives, but it’s something we’re still mulling over. The Attorney was released within the U.S. through an American distributor [Well Go USA] somewhat than, say, through CJ’s CGV Theater in Los Angeles’ Koreatown.

I know this sounds like a fairytale, however I truly imagine that one person’s dream can cease short of being a dream, but the shared dream of a bunch can turn into a reality. Everyone from the CEO to a summer season intern is an energetic participant from the start to end on each movie, from selecting the script to watching previews. This could be inefficient, particularly as our employees grows bigger, but I assume it’s really important to domesticate passion in every single person for each challenge.
