The New Zealand creative production and technology sector today launched a new campaign, Your Creative Business Can Happen Now, offering a world-class production hub solution to studios looking to keep creating and innovating amid the global COVID-19 pandemic.

The campaign is a cross-sector, private-public partnership with New Zealand Trade and Enterprise (NZTE), Callaghan Innovation and Chorus, a national telecommunications company. As a result of the Government's quick and decisive response to COVID-19, the New Zealand creative and production community, already world-renowned, is uniquely positioned to provide a robust and diverse range of screen production, animation, gaming, digital, AR/VR, and more. Whether live-action or digital, on-location or in-studio, the campaign showcases the many country-wide end-to-end solutions for international entertainment companies and businesses.

"Your Creative Business Can Happen Now is a shout-out to the world's production and creative community, deeply impacted by extended shutdowns and content delivery delays, that New Zealand's CreaTech community has got you covered," says Sam Witters, CEO of the AMO Group who is spearheading the campaign. "New Zealand has an abundance of talent including award-winning story-tellers, creatives, technologists, world-class animators and game developers, combined with open businesses and local supply chains. That means we are an exceptional one-stop-shop not only for major studios but, importantly, small and mid-level studios needing best-in-class solutions, fast and on-budget. We are here to help our international colleagues get their projects up-and-running again."

The New Zealand Government has endorsed COVID-19 health and safety guidelines meaning the nation's screen production crews are ready to safely support international content creation; the country is English-speaking with a diverse population and favourable exchange rates, as well as possessing a world-class broadband network and a fibre adoption rate more than double the worldwide average and second only to Japan*; plus New Zealand's financial screen production incentives complete the picture.

With a reputation as one of the best places in the world to do business, this offering is a unique nationwide integration of screen production, creative technology and business.
