Singapore – Integrated media, entertainment and creative services company Infinite Studios, and HBO Asia, have announced the production of an English language action-horror feature film in Asia, Dead Mine. This is the first time HBO has produced a feature in Asia and filming has begun. “HBO Asia is very excited to be working with Infinite Studios on our very first original feature film co-production. This is truly a landmark announcement and is another important milestone for HBO Asia,” said Jonathan Spink, Chief Executive Officer, HBO Asia. “Infinite Frameworks’ rich cinematic pedigree has enabled the company to evolve into a fully fledged studio that now develops and produces quality content with international strategic partners such as HBO Asia. This unique co-production will be the first under our new incarnation as Infinite Studios, the first to utilize our new soundstage facilities in Batam, Indonesia, and will help contribute to the growth of our industry in South East Asia,” said Mike Wiluan, CEO, Infinite Studios. Shot entirely in Batam, Indonesia, in a brand new 30,000 sq ft studio facility and featuring a mix of international and regional actors, creative and technical talent, Dead Mine will receive theatrical releases in regional Asian territories, followed by exclusive television premieres across the HBO Asia network in 2012. More details will be revealed later.
