J-CREATION is a year-round effort to bridge the gap between Japanese entertainment powerhouses and the US entertainment industry, facilitating the adaptation of Japanese IP into film, TV, and other business opportunities.

A cornerstone of this project is J-CREATION: A FIRST LOOK SHOWCASE.

Each year, a slate of up to 10 titles is presented at an exclusive event. Hollywood producers are given the unique opportunity to meet in person with the Japanese rights holders to discuss their projects.

Since its inception in 2016, J-CREATION has become a go-to event for both filmmakers and content holders, spawning several projects that are currently in development.

Past Events

Amuse Group USA hosted its first J-CREATION: A FIRST LOOK SHOWCASE on March 3, 2016 at the London West Hollywood at Beverly Hills. Content rights holders including leading Tokyo-based publishing companies, literary management agencies, and TV networks presented their titles at the event as guests of Amuse. The exclusive Japanese IP showcase event was the first of its kind.

For the second J-CREATION, the event was held at the historic Culver Studios lot on June 8, 2017. Japanese companies from the literary, film, TV, and management spheres presented their titles in front of a packed house of Hollywood producers and executives. Award-winning Japanese horror novelist Yumeaki Hirayama flew in from Japan for the event, and was an instant hit with the American guests.

Each year, a diverse slate of properties are presented, spanning genres including science fiction, action, fantasy, thriller, horror, drama, and comedy.
