Johor set to become Malaysia’s movie capital
Updated: Monday September 17, 2012 MYT 4:19:49 PM
http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp...&if_height=202



JOHOR BARU: The development of Pinewood Iskandar Malaysia Studios in Iskandar Malaysia will position Johor at the forefront of the local creative industry and transform it into Malaysia's movie capital, says it's CEO Michael Lake (pic).

He said that while Pinewood was marketing Malaysia as a destination for film-making, it was also promoting it for companies to set up their infrastructure as well.

"Johor is going to be the real beneficiary economically of what we're doing here," he said.

By the end of 2013, he said, the development of Pinewood, a studio complex located on a 20-hectare site in Nusajaya at the heart of the Iskandar Malaysia Development Region, would have created 1,500 jobs in an export-oriented industry, while financing from overseas over the next decade was estimated to be around RM1.8 bil.

It will be the largest independent integrated studio facility in Southeast Asia, offering state-of-the-art film stages, TV studios and post-production suites from early 2013. Pinewood will have two television studios, both 12,000 sq ft in area, with seating capacities of 600 and 800 people, respectively.

In addition, there will be five film stages covering a total of 100,000 sq ft, two 20,000 sq ft stages, two 15,000 sq ft stages and a 30,000 sq ft stage. The largest stage will have a water tank for productions involving work on or under water.

"This is not just about building the facilities in the hope that people will come, it's about building a big creative industry in Malaysia," said Lake, adding that providing training and opportunity were also Pinewood's key goals.- Bernama

Pinewood Studios set to draw RM3.8b
By Rizalman Hammim Published: 2013/01/30
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz2JQGInyt6



JOHOR BARU: Pinewood Iskandar Malaysia Studios (PIMS) is expected to attract RM3.8 billion in international film production and related activities between 2013 and 2020.

Its chief executive officer Michael Lake said half of the amount is expected to be spent in the local economy, in areas like food and beverages, lodging, construction and logistics services.

"The amount will include expenditure of hiring about 9,500 full-time and freelance film workers and usage of studio space as well as rentals of equipment," said Lake.

PIMS, which is expected to be completed in May, will have five film sound stages covering a total area of 9,290.30 sq metres.

Once completed, it will be the largest integrated studio facility in the region, offering state-of-the-art film stages, television studios and post-production facilities. This is expected to turn Johor into a film-making hub in the region.

Lake said the studio is currently doing a feasibility study on building a big water tank in one of the sound stages as they have received a lot of enquiries about filming underwater scenes.

"We are currently in talks with a number of production companies from countries like the US, the UK, Germany and Japan who are interested in utilising our facilities.

"We are also actively promoting Malaysia, and Johor especially, as an excellent destination for film-making," said Lake.

He was speaking to the media after a briefing on the Iskandar Malaysia Creative Industry Talent Development Programme. Also present was Iskandar Regional Development Authority (Irda) chief executive Datuk Ismail Ibrahim.

The programme is a collaboration between Irda and PIMS and is aimed at training local film production crews to meet the quality and standard required by international production companies.

Ismail said the programme is expected to train about 1,300 people by the end of the year.

"The programme is expected to start in March and is designed as intensive eight to 12 weeks courses to provide the skills and knowledge needed by local film indus-try's professionals to integrate with international production companies."

Pinewood to host American TV series

The Malaysian Reserve
| November 4, 2013

Pinewood Iskandar Malaysia Studios in Johor will host a RM173 million budget American period television series next year.

By Linda Archibald



Pinewood Iskandar Malaysia Studios (PIMS) in Johor will host a US$55 million (RM173 million) budget American period television (TV) series next year.

The US production company — yet unnamed — will be the first to utilise the spanking new studio and production facility that has been open since July this year.

The production team will include 30% Malaysian crew and seven interns from local institutions of higher learning — a requirement set by PIMS in a bid to grow opportunities for local talent involvement in foreign productions.

CEO Michael Peter Lake told The Malaysian Reserve, the details of the production and producers of this production will be unveiled by the end of this month.

Japan's Imagica teams up with Khazanah
Rizalman Hammim Published: 2014/02/13
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz2tA0Bomm6



IMAGICA Corp, a leading production and post-production company in Japan, is establishing its first overseas venture with Khazanah Nasional Bhd.

The joint-venture company, Imagica South East Asia Sdn Bhd (Imagica SEA), will be located at the Pinewood Iskandar Studios Malaysia.

Imagica SEA is 49 per cent owned by Imagica International Asia Sdn Bhd, a wholly-owned unit of Imagica, and 51 per cent by Candelon Ventures Sdn Bhd, a special purpose vehicle wholly-owned by Khazanah.

Imagica president Yukihiro Fujikawa said the timing is right for the company to expand overseas.

The Southeast Asian region is one of the most exciting places in the world as far as the creative industry is concerned, he said.

"We will be investing RM9 million in the joint venture. Through this partnership, Imagica will offer comprehensive and highly creative digital post-production services.

"Besides local productions, the company will also target major Hollywood feature films and television productions," said Fujikawa.

He said Imagica will send about 10 experts in fields like compositing, editing and colour grading from its headquarters in Japan to Malaysia and it will employ about 10 local employees initially.

"The number of local employees will grow with the business. We will provide professional training for local talents as we aim to contribute to the development of the creative industry in Malaysia and the region," said Fujikawa.

He was speaking to the media after the signing of the agreement between Imagica International and Candelon.

Fujikawa said with the incentives offered by the Malaysian government, more production companies will make their way to Malaysia, which will benefit Imagica SEA.

"We expect to cut cost by 30 per cent by having our post-production done in Malaysia compared to in Japan ," said Fujikawa.

Candelon Ventures director Michael Lake said he is bullish on the creative industry in Malaysia.

"I am confident the industry in Malaysia will grow. The government's transformation programme for the creative industry will help to further develop and grow the industry," he said.
