TaleFlick, the story discovery platform launched by White Noise producer Uri Singer and former Netflix executive George Berry, is expanding into the Middle East, Japan, and South Korea.
The service enables authors of the written word a way to shop their work to film, TV, and digital media companies.
TaleFlick will accept submissions in an expanded list of languages including Arabic, Spanish, Hindi, Japanese, and South Korean.
“We’ve always believed in the universal appeal of good stories,” said Singer, the owner and CEO of Los Angeles-based Passage Pictures. “In these challenging times, it’s crucial to bridge the gap between global content creators and the film and TV industry.
“Our expansion is a testament to our commitment to discovering and amplifying voices from diverse cultural backgrounds.”
The strategic move will also see TaleFlick is partner with local producers and studios in the regions to ensure authentic representation and localisation of film and television.
“This is just the beginning,” added Singer from Venice Film Festival, where he is taking meetings. “There are many stories waiting to be told in the world, and we want to make sure they get the platform that they deserve.” We know that curating high-quality content takes time. We are expanding now so that when the strike ends, we will have an expanded and more diverse library.
