MIPDoc Takeaways: A Video Interview for China’s Unscripted Marketplace

2016 May 13
by Peter Hamilton

Content China‘s Carrie Huo sat down with me in Cannes to chat about trends in the Unscripted video sector worldwide.

  • The Mandarin-subtitled interview was aimed at China’s documentary and reality producers.
  • The video is distributed on the ad-supported Media Plus China platform.
  • It is worth a look just for the production value and ad load!

Topics covered include:

  • SVOD originals.
  • Channels will require a lot of content for a long time.
  • Netflix, Nat Geo and the ‘swing back to quality.’
  • The evolution of China’s documentary sector.
  • VR’s limited relevance for documentary story-telling.
  • Incremental technical changes, including 4K.

Here is the link to the interview:

And stills to give you the flavor.
