Our joint-venture project “Your Bridge” with Futurecode has landed to Tokyo. Your Bridge is a China-Japan-Finland co-production project, supported by the Ministry of Education and Culture in Finland.
The project started in the beginning of November simultaneously in Helsinki, Beijing and Los Angeles. In Helsinki Jim Solatie (Futurecode, creator of The Dibidogs) was preparing a book publishing project with the Japanese and paving the way for negotiations with a major Chinese shopping mall chain. Liisa Vähäkylä (Finnanimation) started Your Bridge meetings in Beijing with the companies who are on our Embassy calling list. In Los Angeles, during the American Film Market Petteri Pasanen (Anima Vitae) met Japanese and Chinese companies connected to the project.
The ten days of Your Bridge in Tokyo culminates in CGWorld2015 creative conference and to a reception at the Finnish Embassy in Tokyo.
