Media Konnect, a Filmmaker's Market, Launches With Over 10k Registered Users in First Four Days

MUMBAI, July 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

An Exclusive Global Media Exchange Platform to Strengthen Networking and Enhance
Content Creation in Entertainment Industry 

A brainchild of industry veteran Ranjit Thakur, Media Konnect was officially unveiled
as the only exclusive global media exchange and collaboration platform which content
creators across the globe will benefit from in several ways. Media Konnect, headquartered
in the Netherlands, aspires to connect the entire global entertainment fraternity through
this ambitious mission. Mr. Ranjit Thakur, Founder and CEO of Krian Group, has initiated
this platform with an aim to provide end-to-end solutions for anyone who wishes to create
any type of content bringing together talent exchange, collaboration and increased revenue
opportunities to the entire industry.

The core concept of Media Konnect was borne out of addressing key industry challenges,
observed and experienced by the pioneers, and now, the younger generation, who are
aspiring to be a part of this vibrant and exciting industry. The biggest challenges in the
industry today are the cost of content creation, losses due to lack of market
[ ],
distribution limitations
[ ]
, and an absence of actual ground intelligence. For most filmmakers, the
biggest challenge lies in the inability to identify
[ ]
, connect, and collaborate with talent across different
specialization at commercially viable terms needed to turn an idea into reality that can
actually be profitable. Media Konnect looks to address these issues by giving a platform
for professionals across a variety of specializations to connect, discuss and transform
the filmmaker's idea into a film. Media Konnect has successfully launched with a base of
over 10,500
[ ]
registered users on its website, and will continue to gain reception

Mr. Ranjit Thakur, elaborated on his experience, "I have been fortunate to have been a
part of this industry for more than two decades across both the Indian and International
Film community. The basic premise of Media Konnect is for industry professionals around
the world to firstly connect with each other, subsidies/grants to be explored in each
country, content to be created at lower costs without compromising creativity and
ultimately the revenue opportunities to be exploited to its maximum potential. "

To extend industry support to the Media Konnect team, guests from Indian and
International entertainment circuits notably Lorelle Yee, Director of Marketing at Screens
Producers Australia; Mahesh Narayanan, Managing Director of Saavn; Jamshed Mistry,
Advocate and Senior Counsel in the Central Government Panel; and Jeffrey Goldberg, writer,
director and actor who heads the Jeff Goldberg Studio in Bandra; Anupam Sharma, film
director, producer and actor from Australia; and Viveck Vaswani, writer, actor and
producer who moderated the session, were present and highlighted their perspectives and
insights towards the need of a platform like Media Konnect along with the impact it can
create on the growth of the industry.

Speaking about the platform, Ranjit highlighted that, "Media Konnect is not a casting
agency, instead covers the entire spectrum of global connections in the content creation
and collaboration space. Its versatility stretches from getting subsidy
[ ] from
any country required to make a film to selling
[ ]
the remake rights of a script, to a language a producer
would have otherwise never thought of. At the end of the day, Media Konnect will be an
online film market with more versatility and flexibility than any film festival in the

Media Konnect will be available globally as a web platform
[ ] as well as on Android
[ ] Google
Play with phased launches in many key global regions over the next quarter to add on to
major film markets like in India, China, Mexico, France, USA, and the UK. The digital
collaboration platform already has participation intent from Hollywood. Other
International Studios and several influential industry personalities in several countries
have opted to be of use and support to this global exchange platform to connect minds,
ideas and talent together.
