Douglas, Isle of Man and Chengdu, China
Isle of Man-based social network games and media specialist, Clubv3, has announced a far-reaching strategic alliance with Chengdu-based Chinese film studios, Green Leaf Film Studios.
The two companies are working together on the creation of social network games based on Green Leaf's TV and film properties for Western and Asian social networks, including the likes of Facebook, MySpace, Netlog, Mixi, RenRen, QQ, Orkut and Hi5. Development is already underway on a number of initial products based on Clubv3's platform.
Green Leaf is further providing Clubv3 with access to its team of artists in Chengdu for the rapidly expanding art requirements of the social games publisher.
Clubv3 is run by a management team with extensive video games and casual games experience. The company has grown rapidly in the two months since formation, with a team of social network games specialists based in the Isle of Man, Romania, Canada, Ukraine, the UK and now China. Clubv3 has a complete system in place for social network games with an integrated micro-transaction system, full 3D avatar system and a highly flexible and dynamic development system, allowing long-lasting playability and adaptability of games. The first large scale games are to be released initially on Facebook during the month of June, whilst the company is also working with a number of brands to bring their products to social networks globally.
Green Leaf is a Chinese Film & TV Studio, set up by film industry specialists. The company is the world-wide partner for Terry Deary, one of the highest selling modern children's authors with his “Horrible Histories” series broadcast on the BBC, and is currently marketing a 26 part series entitled “Terry Deary's True Time Tales” amongst a vast stable of projects and brands.
“The expertise at Clubv3 makes them a natural partner for a company such as ours with intellectual property to take to the world of social networks, both to build the profile of our TV and film brands, as well generating additional revenues and fans for our franchises across the world in this exciting new market”, said Jean Sebastien Laurenson, Sales Director at Green Leaf Film Studios.
“Working with Green Leaf gives us access to a vast array of content properties to work with, as well as access to the vast Chinese marketplace of 1.2 billion+ social gamers. The virtual goods market in Asia was at US$5bn (2008) and US$7bn (2009) and will increase in 2010” added Dominic Mason, Director at Clubv3, “Our technical expertise in bringing these properties to social gamers and creating compelling products will allow Green Leaf to reach a large audience.”
