NEW YORK -- Climate activist annd PR consultant Danny Bloom is working on a plan to set up his own movie production
company in Asia, he tells APF, with US$50 million in funding from
Nigerian energy tycoon Christian Nwadike and an anonymous
Chinese investor in Beijing, he says.
The production company,
to be called ''Cli Fi Guys'', will make only cli fi movies for worldwide
distribution, and will aim for films with signifcant box office
prospects, according to Bloom, sometimes in partnership with Hollywood
and Chinese studios.
"The goal is to develop cli fi material that the studios are not
necessarily thinking of, or greenlighting," Bloom, 65, says. "The projects
will all involve cli fi themes, but I myself won't be involved in the
producing, directing or writing asspects other than as a PR consultant
on the side. China will be a particular focus. Cli fi is getting big
in China, for some reason. But good of them, as China is one of the
biggest emitters of carbon dioxide on the planet."
