The Challenge: Returning Hong Kong’s Film Industry to its Former Glory
The Hong Kong film industry is staging a comeback. A new generation of talented directors, producers, actors, technicians, and post-production experts is emerging. Local and international audiences are receptive to films with a Hong Kong flavour. Plus, the Government is supporting the sector as a pillar of the territory’s burgeoning creative economy. All of these factors are now coming together to cause an upsurge in local film production.

Prominent among the industry’s latest offerings is Echoes of the Rainbow, a touching family drama set in 1960s Hong Kong and made with financial support from the Film Development Fund. It won the Berlin International Film Festival's Crystal Bear Award in February 2010. While Echoes of the Rainbow was a totally local production, another home-grown hit, Bodyguards and Assassins, was a successful Hong Kong-China collaboration. One of the best selling movies in China in 2009 and a critical success that dominated the 2010 Hong Kong Film Awards, it highlights Hong Kong’s unique opportunity to tap into the huge mainland market.

While there is certainly great potential for industry growth, more is needed to be done if the Hong Kong film industry is to return to the heights of popularity and creative output it enjoyed in its heyday of two decades ago.

The Solution: Education to Build a Strong Knowledge Base

To rebuild a strong film sector as part of a wider creative industry, Hong Kong is now looking to strengthen the sector’s knowledge base through education. Talented people seeking careers in the industry must have the chance to train and to gain production experience. Fortunately, a number of high-quality film industry training courses are offered by Hong Kong’s universities and specialist institutions and supported by firms such as Jebsen Industrial.

As a leading supplier to the film and broadcast industry in Hong Kong and China for more than five decades, Jebsen Industrial offers a portfolio of solutions that includes the world’s finest cameras and stabilizing systems, lighting and audio recording equipment, and digital intermediate technologies.

This equipment is found throughout the local film, television, and theatre industries, and in the city’s leading film schools, including Hong Kong Baptist University’s Academy of Film; The City University of Hong Kong’s School of Creative Media; The Hong Kong Academy For Performing Arts’ School of Film and Television; the Hong Kong Design Institute’s Department of Printing and Digital Media; The Chinese University of Hong Kong’s Department of Linguistics & Modern Languages; and even in forward-looking secondary schools such as Holy Family Canossian School and institutions within the English Schools Foundation.

“It makes sense that these institutions choose to train their students on the world’s best equipment. The brands that are the most popular in the industry are also the most reliable and long-lasting. So the school gets the best from its technology investment and students get experience with the equipment they will find in the real world,” said Mr Lorenz Zimmermann, Director of Jebsen Industrial.

“It is a pleasure for Jebsen Industrial to leverage our strong relationships with key industry players from around the world, and our knowledge of global trends and local conditions, in order to help Hong Kong’s talented student filmmakers,” he continued.

Along with product demonstrations and workshops to provide training on the large range of different products it supplies, Jebsen Industrial also offers preferential pricing to academic institutions serving the media industry in Hong Kong and to local secondary schools.
