The new office will give TeamTO co-development and co-production opportunities on original and existing animated properties with Chinese companies.
Ye brings 12 years of film industry experience, and a specialty in French-Chinese feature film co-production, to her new role. She’s also worked as a sound editor and designer for top Chinese directors including Tsui Hark, Zhang Yimou, Teng Huatao and Zhang Yibai.
Additionally, Ye has worked at Beijing United Power Films, a Chinese distributor of high-end American and European films including The King’s Speech, and currently reps numerous up-and-coming English-speaking Chinese talent and several French filmmakers.
The announcement comes on the heels of TeamTO’s promotion of Patricia de Wilde to director of marketing and new business, as well as significant growth for the company’s kids slate and production capabilities.
