Over the last several years, there has been a boom in film and TV international co-productions. The reasons for this are multiple, including more international stories being created and better access to film financing. Furthermore, co-productions are better exploited and trigger more revenues.
But, co-production partnerships also come with certain challenges, especially language barriers. You may be communicating with partners who don’t necessarily speak your native language.
By entering into a co-production, two producers at least will be sharing the IP, the production work, the decision process,, and all associated responsibilities. This is a real commitment that needs to be carefully assessed.
What exactly is a co-production? What are the types of co-productions? What is a co-production treaty? When should you consider an international co-production? In this guide, we will answer these questions and open a path to explore in greater detail the mechanisms that rule a co-production.
