Reach for the Sky


Reach for the SKY –
Case Study on European-
East Asian Co-productions

The case study will explore various aspects of making **Reach for the SKY** (2015), a Belgian-Korean co-production that participated in the Documentary Campus Masterschool in 2012 (and won the prize for best pitch). Having a Belgian and a Korean co-director, as well as a Belgian and a Korean co-producer makes it a perfect example of a truly international co-production.


Starting with the birth of the idea, we will discuss how the two sides found each other, aspects of co-financing and making the product fit into two very different markets, finding distributors and broadcasters, and – most importantly – how production worked between two very different cultural backgrounds and production environments.

A previous Belgian-Korean co-production, **State of Play** (2012) will be included in the case study.
