MDA-Singapore and HBO Asia Align to Support Local Drama Production

The Media Development Authority of Singapore (MDA) and HBO Asia have launched a joint initiative to develop the drama production capabilities of the local industry.

Over the next two years, HBO Asia will train local talents and work with local production houses to develop and produce content. HBO Asia will make use of local production facilities or locations in Singapore for future original productions.

The initiative kicked off last week with a training forum, which Singapore-based production companies and independent practitioners were invited to attend. The forum was led by Jay Roewe, the senior VP for West Coast productions at HBO. Attendees got a glimpse into HBO’s complete production process, from pitching through development, practical production, risk management and final delivery. Roewe also conducted a separate training forum for students from Nanyang Polytechnic on December 3.
