Basser

Consultant

A former lawyer, Basser was with Village Roadshow for nearly 20 years until the announcement in October that he was stepping down and former Sony TV topper Steve Mosko was taking over the role. When private equity firms Vine Alternative Investments and Falcon Investment Advisors took a majority stake in VREG last year, Basser said he looked forward to taking the company to the next level. That made him less dependent on its slate financing deal with Warner Bros., as evidenced by Perfect Village venture in China, designed to develop world-class local film and TV productions. And produce they did, bringing the Jackie Chan film “Bleeding Steel” to the Sydney Opera House rooftop and greenlighting the $40 million China co-production “The Whistleblower,” to name just two.
