China / UK Animation link – update

I am delighted to be hosting a delegation of Chinese digital and animation producers, led by the Chinese Ministry of Commerce, in Bristol on 21st September.

During a whistlestop tour we will be visiting Aardman Animations and the Pervasive Media Studio, seeing the best of SW animated films courtesy of Encounters Festival and holding a networking session to generate some productive partnerships between SW and Chinese creative businesses.

This mission will help to build dialogue between the two countries ahead of the planned UK / China Animation Forum in Beijing in early December. In recent weeks DCMS and the Chinese Ministry of Commerce have confirmed their support, and UK Trade & Investment has indicated additional investment. As part of the development, conversations with Chinese market consultants, Neil Blakeman Associates, and IP lawyers, Wragge & Co, have helped to form the programme of pre-market activities.

The official launch of this mission to China will happen in September with a call for applications – contact me ahead of time for more detail via
