Ontario tech execs hit the Hollywood Hills to promote the North’s potential. And it went dashingly: impressed by Canada’s “pixel-perfect” business conditions for expanding entertainment companies, American United Entertainment decided to invest $40 million into media, film, and television infrastructure for up to four upcoming major projects.
“Toronto’s an incredible city to do feature films and digital media, and thanks to the Ontario Technology Corridor and their many government and private sector partners, we’ve had our eyes opened to the possibilities for American United Entertainment expansions in gaming, special effects and social media,” says AUE’s CEO Robert Rodriguez. “The fact that our industry is a provincial priority and there’s a wealth of graduates from colleges and universities as well as veteran production talent and companies makes Ontario a very compelling place to expand our business.”
“We are thrilled to welcome American United Entertainment to Canada’s digital entertainment heartland,” says Gerald Pisarzowski, Vice-President Business Development with the Greater Toronto Marketing Alliance (GTMA), an Ontario Technology Corridor partner.
