Asians set up visual f/x company

Metafive, October team on Kinomotive

HONG KONG — Korean post house Metafive Art, Science and Magic and Hong Kong-based production services company October Pictures have set up visual-effects joint venture Kinomotive.

The partnership was announced Monday before officials from Gwangju who are promoting the Korean city as an Asian hub for visual effects.

Hong Kong CGI veteran Frankie Chung will serve as visual director for the first film on the CGI post house’s slate, the ATM Motionwide/Sony co-production “Beverly Hills Ninja 2,” set to lense in South Korea’s Jeju Island in early October.

Chung previously headed f/x on Zhang Yimou’s “Curse of the Golden Flower” and Stephen Chow’s “Kung Fu Hustle” and co-directed Disney’s first Chinese movie, last year’s “The Magic Gourd.”

“With Metafive and Frankie Chung as our partners, we are confident of growing our business in the field of CGI and visual effects,” said Chu Chen On, principal director of October Pictures.
