Asia: Key Part of Im Global’s Growth

12 May 2015 12:41 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Asia has been integral to Im Global almost since day one. That is a reflection of both of Im Global founder Stuart Ford’s determination to position the company for growth and the company’s financial opportunism.

That puts Im Global in a unique position — an independent with large exposure in both India and in China.

“Our mantra is to stay opportunistic, not be wed to a single business or financing model,” Ford says. “And to keep one eye on the wider business — digital distribution, growth markets, lower cost filmmaking. These make it easier to build a business and make a buck, than building a big studio structure.”
