London and Los Angeles based independent film and TV producer, Komixx Entertainment, has expanded its operations into Australia, to bring its approach of identifying and developing local IP for TV and Film production to the Asia-Pacific (APAC) market. Former RKPIX founder and leading figure in the APAC TV and entertainment industry, Amanda Morrison, will lead the Australian (Perth) office and drive the company’s strategy in the region.
With the APAC SVoD market predicted to reach $6.4 billion in the next five years, Komixx has identified a growing demand for content in the region thanks to the increasing competition between local SVoD services, which has been a motivating factor behind the company’s new office in Australia.
Andrew Cole-Bulgin, joint CEO and Head of Film & TV, Komixx Media Group, says “We are extremely excited to be bringing Amanda on board to help us drive this exciting new chapter in Komixx’s international story. The Australian office serves as a natural progression to our global content strategy and we’re thrilled to be making our mark in the APAC region. Our growth here is a response to the demand for new and exciting content in Asia and Amanda is the perfect person to lead this charge. Her unique international perspective within both the traditional and new media content production markets, ensures we’ll have some exciting content emerging from the Perth office very soon.”
