About

The Content business has been gaining power in Asian countries while their domestic markets have been shrinking. Engaging in successful international business by making the most of Japan’s outstanding Intellectual Properties is key to the revitalization of the Japanese entertainment industry and the promotion of creative diversity. Japan is rich in excellent IPs and there is no doubt that Hollywood/International producers are eager to obtain those rights. Many Japanese IPs have been introduced overseas and successfully produced as Hollywood/International projects, and several are still loved by many. On the other hand, there have been projects that were abandoned in development or were actually produced, but ended up disappointing financially or creatively. People in the Hollywood entertainment industry also feel that it is very difficult for them to obtain film rights or remake rights to Japanese IPs.

For the purpose of removing these obstacles and raising the probability of successful international business, we hold a content matching event between Japanese IP holders and Hollywood producers/filmmakers. This attempt was the very first event of its kind and we invited Japanese IP holders to Los Angeles, who have extremely positive attitudes toward Hollywood adaptations/remakes in relation to their content, and we hosted “J-CREATION: A FIRST LOOK SHOWCASE”, an event which connects Japanese IP holders with producers, filmmakers, and film studios in North America.

Amuse Group USA Inc. seeks to bridge the gap between Japanese entertainment powerhouses and Hollywood producers to get to know each other better, exchange thoughts, and seek more business opportunities together.

Our March 2016 event was well-received and we will continue to create new opportunities, as the Japanese entertainment industry work together to represent Japan, and we were committed to making e a contribution to the first step of expanding the Japanese content business. We greatly appreciate all of you who supported and worked with us on J-CREATION!
