WHAT WE DO
SUPPORTING CREATORS FROM SCRIPT TO SCREEN
Mrs. Antonovich is a well-known film investor, producer, director and actress in both China and United States, and has a wide range of network and connections. She has unique perspectives on the concept, development, screenplay writing, production and distribution of Hollywood films, and a deep understanding of the history, formation, and development of the Hollywood movie industry. From the first film shot in Hollywood in 1910, “In Old California,” to the many 2017 blockbuster movies such as “Beauty and the Beast”, “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”, “Fast and Furious 8” , “Spider-Man: Homecoming”, “Wonder Woman” and more, the film industry has grown tremendously. If we compared the world movie industry to a boxing ring, Hollywood would be the long-reigning champion, witnessing the ups and downs of over a hundred years.
Mrs. Antonovich was born in China, and therefore has a special feeling and responsibility for the development of the Chinese film industry. In 1905, the first film “Dingjun Mountain”, shot by the Chinese people themselves, opened the era for Chinese film. More than 100 years later, with the prosperous development of film industry, Chinese domestic movies such as, “Wolf Warrior 2″, “Never Say Die”, and “Kung Fu Yoga” have gained huge success in box-office and drawn global attention. This illustrates the tremendous potential of Chinese film and remarkable values of Chinese film market.
With the strong support from two Co-Chairmen Mr. Michael Antonovich, Chairman of Moregain Capital Group’s Board, and Mr. Wang Haige, founder of Huading Awards, Mrs. Antonovich is determined to set up a bridge between the Hollywood mainstream movies and the Chinese movie market, to make the cooperation vibrant and colorful like a rainbow. President Hu often says “The prosperity of the movie industry largely benefits from the diversity of cultures. China has a history of 5,000 years, there are a lot good stories, and we need good storyteller to tell the story to the world.” The UCMPA will allow more Chinese investors to directly invest in high-quality movies in Hollywood, and also provide a solid and practical platform to serve screenplay writers, directors, artists and various film and TV professionals in both United States and China. To have direct communication, the exchange of ideas, and to carry out cooperations, UCMPA will follow the principle of sharing resources, complementing each other’s strength, using win-win strategies to accomplish mutual benefits and development, and comprehensively promote the career development of filmmakers. The goal of UCMPA is to realize the organic integration of Hollywood’s top film industry with China’s vast film talent and market, and to make the cooperation between the two free of any barriers; to allow free access, eliminate intermediaries, build strong connections, and let the global film and television culture lay the foundation for the healthy development.
