Unlike the US market, the Asian market is difficult to tap into without a deep understanding of Asian values and cultures. Of the many facets of video production, a delicate story-telling is one of the most important aspects of the production when you are in Asia. Asian people love stories, especially those that are a reflection of their everyday lives. In fact, real-world advertisements and brand stories find more success than made-up, fancy stories. Being mostly conscious buyers, Asian audiences seldom make purchase decisions or follow brands unless they can relate to the product/service and trust the brand.
Videos and commercial films are the best mediums to build this trust and to attract the loyalty of an Asian consumer. So if you’re looking to tap into the Asian market, these studios are the best in the game!
