Creating the Next Big Global Film Franchise
The WONDERFILM Media Corporation (TSXV:WNDR,OTC:WDRFF,FRA:Y25) is an entertainment company focused on developing, financing and producing in-demand films and TV series. The company has offices in Beverly Hills, US, Vancouver, Canada and Seoul, South Korea.
WONDERFILM creates a predictable revenue stream by pre-selling its films before filming begins and is setting up a global in-house distribution network to keep profits within the company. The company will select low-risk films with forecastable and consistent return profiles before they commit to producing the film. The presale funds are then combined with other funding and incentives to form the production.
In its efforts to become a vertically-integrated entertainment company, WONDERFILM has established multiple partnerships to develop a variety of quality films and TV series. The company also aims to create other media platforms, such as esports. To this aim, the company has formed WONDERFILM Global Sales Limited (WGSL), a new film, television and media foreign sales and distribution company, with 101 Films Limited. The joint venture company is expected to have immediate impacts upon the company’s revenue as WONDERFILM brings its distribution in-house, eliminating third-party fees.
Hollywood has established itself as the center of the entertainment industry, but as technology advances and the internet penetrates into areas where it has been limited, new markets are opening up in Asia-Pacific. As a result, the global media and entertainment market is expected to grow from $1.9 trillion in 2017 to $2.4 trillion in 2022 at a CAGR of 4.4 percent, according to report by PwC.
