Bomanbridge Media brings Yann Arthus-Bertrand to Asia
MUMBAI: Bomanbridge Media has acquired additional high-end documentaries. The Singapore-based content distribution and production agency has procured six hours of blue chip HD documentaries from Calt Distribution, representing Hope Production’s titles.
All programs were produced by famed French photographer, journalist, reporter and environmentalist Yann Arthus-Bertrand, a man who has looked down on perhaps more of the Earth’s surface than anyone in history. The programmes were shot in North Africa, South Asia and the Middle East.
Titles include ‘Morocco From Above’ (produced in 4K), ‘Mediterranean From Above’, ‘Algeria From Above’ and ‘Bangladesh From Above’. These series are all in Bertrand’s particular style, using high-end technology, with skillfully crafted and expensive production budgets to capture natural landscapes with aerial shots.
“Bomanbridge is extremely pleased to add these exquisite Yann Arthus-Bertrand documentaries to our rich catalogue. We pride ourselves on holding blue-chip programming, and catering to distinguished Asian audiences that value education and fine production values. These programs are simply breath-taking and provide unique perspectives on fast-changing, yet historical parts, of the world,” said Bomanbridge Media CEO Sonia Fleck.
“We were looking for the best partner in Asia to distribute our exceptional programs which deserve a wider audience, and we were pleased to find Bomanbridge – the best in the region,” said Calt Distribution sales manager Dimitri Gelineau, which holds the rights for the rest of the world.
