It's 2015 and I've decided that one of my new year's resolutions shall be to pick up blogging again!
So to start things off with a bang, I'll begin with a multipart recollection of my recent journey back to China (the reason for splitting it into parts will become clear soon enough).
I had already been planning a trip to China for sometime - mainly to visit creatives, studios, and industry contacts to explore the potential for creative collaborations. In late 2014, I was invited by NZFC (New Zealand Film Commission) to join the inaugural Screen Delegation to China. Since I've been spending most of my time this year working as a producer on a Sino-NZ co-production feature film, this was the perfect opportunity to for me to further my connections and understanding of China's screen sector.
Thus, I decided to combine the two plans and spend a full month in China - 1 week as part of the delegation, and 3 on my own.
First stop - Guangzhou
