The 17 years helping orphans in China, Vietnam, and Thailand opened my eyes to the future influence Asians would have in Film, Online Entertainment, and Television.
The founder of Creativity First Films, Scott Morgan, began casting Asians in lead roles in all productions, being the first to open the door to Asian Actors. His Award-Winning Film “Playing Solitaire” starred a Korean lead, Philippine Co-Lead, Philippine Principle, Chinese Principle role, and won all awards it could. “The Violent Kind” starred 2 Asian Leads. “Boxing God” starred the half-Asian lead. “Club Fiji” starred 2 Asian Leads. “Cupid’s Bow” starred 2 Asian Leads and 4 Asian Principle roles.
In his travels way back in the 1990’s to early 2000’s,, Morgan saw the fast expansion and building of China top quality THX cinemas replacing lousy art-house film theaters. And their version of television, watched on Smart Phones, Computers, or Tablets was called Streaming Media. Due to censorship, and a lack of laying the cable in the ground for quality cable television, Streaming Media is how most Asians watched International Entertainment for decades.
This was what proved to Morgan that China would rise to be the financial source of the future.
For the first time, a foreign country would have more than just money for Hollywood: it would open up the greatest fan base and film market in the world and in the history of motion pictures. With only 6% of their population going to the movies more than once a month, this number still is more than all the citizens of the USA and Canada combined. China experts expect this number to rise to 10% over the next 3 years. And while the USA earns approximately $60 billion in Games, China spends $160 billion.
Morgan first opened his Asian business “Creative Genius Asia” in 2012, preparing for this rise in China Box Office and Financing Power. Why did he do this? Not to rush in and rape the China investors. He spent too many years helping Asian people to even consider abusing their trust. He instead made the move to counter what he knew would happen: Hollywood would rip off China with bad deals like they did to all other nations before it. Countries that fell for Hollywood’s promises of profits and cultural awareness.
Hollywood dangled the bait for Chinese investors, and they bit. With $15 billion invested, almost all deals are extremely bad for China and “criminally” good for Hollywood. In 2017 the truth about how bad these deals were for Chinese investors will come out. Creativity First Films plans to counter this before the awareness happens.
Creativity First Films will do two things that will change all future deals and the profits China earns when they partner with Hollywood.
- Creativity First Films will offer the Copyrights/IP Rights to China first, before Hollywood
- Creativity First Films will reveal the truth about Hollywood malpractice, thereby earning the first-place position as Most Favorable Investment Partner.
Creativity First Films achieves this by:
- Knowing more about China’s Culture and History
- Caring more about China’s Success in Entertainment
- Being the ONLY partner that already owns all Copyrights, ending “Blind Deals”
- Originating the deal in Asia, avoiding USA taxation losses
- Cutting Out The Middleman
- Avoiding Agency Rip Off Systems
- Putting Up First Money Invested in Projects giving China leverage on deals
- Presenting 90% of Projects favorable to China Censorship Rules
- Presenting 25% of Projects obviously politically favorable to China
- Offering in the original deal the option to re-create the hit film in Chinese
- Hiring duo China-USA Directors for two-language films
- Giving China Investors their first true leverage in USA television Productions
- Seeing the future of enjoying Entertainment and building it into the Projects
- Catering specifics to the massive Streaming Media Market
- Keeping money paid into our Productions from China in China banks
- Originating deals and filming in Asia to avoid Quota Limits
- Hiring large numbers of Chinese in Productions
- Understanding cultural tastes of Chinese demographics
- Not having to be loyal to any Hollywood Studio, Agency, or Production Company
- No fraudulent accounting by Hollywood Producers and Studios, no cross-collateralizing profits and losses between productions
- Each Film Slate presents one or more film that has Franchise/Sequel potential, and one Television Show.
