Passion. Experience. Diligence. Creativity.
Metan Global Entertainment Group
Based in Los Angeles, New York and Beijing, Metan Global Entertainment Group (Metan) has extensive experience, resources, and connections, in Hollywood, China, and the global media market. Metan is a very modern take on how media companies must structure in today’s rapidly changing business environment. No longer is content distributed over a single technology and no longer is the United States the totally dominant marketplace for content.
Metan has embraced these changes while many companies continue to fight the inevitable. We create content that is designed to take advantage of all modern technologies and to maximize revenues and profits across all. All Metan business verticals recognize the changes in distribution, ecommerce, and social media. Further, Metan is the first company to design new content services and business models which it develops and tests in emerging markets such as China and India (under very favorable economic circumstances ) and then deploys them in global markets.
Metan’s management team is ideally suited to carry out this strategy as its top executives are not only well respected in traditional media but also recognized widely as pioneers in new technologies and new markets.
