We’re excited to announce a new partnership with environmental policy organization Brighter Green on the production of their documentary Meat World, which explores the impact of meat and dairy consumption on developing countries like China. This marks the beginning of a new chapter for dGenerate Films. Increasing inquiries from American producers have led us to start offering co-producing and consulting services for documentary and fiction films interested in filming in China.

We’ve been fortunate throughout the short life of our business to develop extensive ties and strong relationships to the best and brightest of the independent Chinese filmmaking community, as well as an insider’s understanding of how the film business works there. For Meat World, we’ve connected Super, Girls! director Jian Yi with Brighter Green to helm the project and have been supervising the pre-production and production process in Beijing, Jiangxi, and Guangzhou. Early feedback has it that the footage is remarkable and transformed the Chinese crew into vegetarians by day three of the shoot!

Check out this enlightening blog post by Brighter Green’s Mia MacDonald on the Meat World project.

Any productions in search of location assistance, crew, talent, producing partners, or anything production-related in China, don’t hesitate to get in touch. We’d love to explore ways to work with you while continuing to support truly independent filmmaking in China.

    Thank you for producing a film like this.

    It is incredibly important for more people to understand that, in terms of food production and the exploitation of nonhuman sentient beings, China is rapidly becoming America 2.0.

    China could choose a different path: It has a a several-thousand year history of delicious vegan food and compassionate relationships with nonhuman animals.

    I’m anxiously awaiting the release of this film.
