Adapt, Evolve and Progress

Every 5 years, there will normally be a change in business climate and every 10 years a major shift. In business, as long as we can adapt to changes, we will survive.
10 years ago, we started as a production service company. As time goes by, our neighbouring countries became cheaper and more skilful. Hence we became less and less competitive.
Yesterday, you have India and China being the cheaper solutions. Today you have Thailand and Indonesia. Tomorrow you will have Myammar and Vietnam. Hence making yourself cheaper will not be the solution.
Leveraging on our success and track record in IP creation and Monetisation; and also the relations that we have built across North America and Asia, we started a new business model. From a service studio, today Tiny Island has grown to become a consultancy company to assist US independent studio to redevelop their IP and concept art not just for aesthetic reasons. But most importantly, making it more investment friendly. So that it can have better toys and computer games investment opportunity. The market has evolved tremendously. One can no longer depend on licensing fee to survive.
Besides just redevelopment work, we also introduce our client to Netflix, Dreamworks, Cybergroup, Nickelodeons, DHX Media, Cake, Eone etc. For a first timer, getting a meeting with the majors is never easy.
Our staff James Phang and Chwee Hock have done well for Seal Force 5. It has been well received at markets.
Next we will be introducing it to our Asia network in Korea and China. This service has brought us up to the upper value chain.
Adapt, evolve and progress is the way we handle the challenges in this ever changing landscape of the industry.

Meeting with the Executive of Netflix

I am very grateful to be given a chance to meet the executive at Netflix HQ. There are going to be more and more opportunities coming up. Its very exciting. I am lucky to be given this opportunity to build the relationship with them.

Trip to LA

This trip to LA has been fruitful. I am very fortunate to have met many Disney Veterans. One valuable lesson I learnt from meeting them which touches my heart very deep when they told me this. " Whether we are developing the story or animating the film. Remember this. If we want to be successful. It must be more than a job. We need to inject our full passion into our work. If we cannot touch our hearts with our own story and acting, we cannot touch the audience. "
Their experience, their passion, their knowledge is what is missing in today's education. What they have taught me is gold.
Producing our films is a new chapter for me. I am learning so much from this journey.
I wish Singapore hasn't let go the Animation Industry so early. I feel like I am going back to school all over again. There is so much to learn. I feel all motivated. Hope some day, I can bring them to Singapore to share their knowledge with more people.

Meeting with Lionsgate

7th Feb 2017: We are very honoured to be given this chance to meet the executives at Lionsgate. It wasn't easy I must say for independent producer like us. I am glad they want to see our animatics and visual designs once it is ready. Thank you so much. Its encouraging. We will work very hard on it.
