Something Special, Seoul-based international Format agency, and AR Asia Productions, Hong Kong-based regional production company, announced their selection by the Taiwan Creative Content Agency (TAICCA) to spearhead the LEAP Creative Lab project. This initiative aims to elevate the creativity of Taiwanese producers through immersive learning experiences and collaborative development opportunities.

Entitled LEAP, this year-long project will be led by Something Special and AR Asia Productions, with activities spanning throughout 2024. Divided into two integral parts, LEAP comprises a Master Class in Taipei and a Creative Development Workshop in Seoul.

InSoon Kim (EVP & Head of Content, Something Special) stated: “We are honored to be chosen by TAICCA, along with AR Asia Productions, for this exciting initiative. LEAP represents a unique opportunity to nurture talent, facilitate knowledge exchange, and cultivate fresh creative perspectives within the Taiwanese content industry.”

Anne Chan (CEO of AR Asia Productions) added: “We are excited to collaborate with Something Special and TAICCA on this transformative project. LEAP underscores our shared commitment to fostering creativity and driving innovation across borders.”

The Master Class in Taipei is scheduled to take place during the second week of April, from the 10th to the 12th, offering a comprehensive three-day program. A select group of 50 producers and companies have been chosen to participate in this exclusive event. Renowned instructors from South Korea will converge in Taiwan to provide invaluable insights on creating unscripted shows and maximizing their international appeal.

Following the Master Class, the Creative Workshop will be held in the latter half of 2024. From the initial cohort of 50 participants, eight standout companies will be selected for intensive mentoring by Korean professionals. Together, they will collaboratively develop new unscripted IPs with the aim of fostering innovation and cross-cultural exchange within the content creation landscape.

LEAP promises to not only enhance the capabilities of Taiwanese producers but also strengthen ties between Taiwan, South Korea, and Hong Kong within the global content ecosystem. Through immersive learning experiences and collaborative development initiatives, LEAP aims to empower content creators to reach new heights of creativity and global success.
