When not in front of the camera, Li Kim works hard behind the scenes to learn about new technologies and changes in the media industry. The media industry, technologies, markets and audiences are constantly evolving, so Li Kim is on a constant learning curve to familiarise herself with the possibilities and potential opportunities available for her to generate revenue and maximise her TV series, The Paranormal Zone. Today, she and her sister, Li Kheng, met with Vincent Martin, Chief Representative, VP distribution & business development at DailyMotion.

The Asia TV Forum (ATF) is the only entertainment market in Asia that brings international TV content sellers and Asian buyers together – to buy, sell, finance, distribute and co-produce, across all platforms. ATF provides the platform to tap into the region’s key entertainment segments and opportunities to build the relationships that count.
This was the third year Li Kim is attending ATF and this time, she brought her sister Li Kheng along. Ms Han, head of TPZ’s production house Kechara InMotion, also attended. As usual, it was great to meet new key players in the television industry and to see familiar faces again. More photos here.
On 25-26 August 2014, Li Kim was invited to NBC Universal Singapore for meetings on the upcoming premier of The Paranormal Zone Season 1 on Syfy Asia on 29 September 2014!
Li Kim was invited to meet the NBC Universal family at their internal ‘town hall’ event, which is where their MD Christine Fellowes and key staff update all the employees on the latest updates at NBCU. Usually, these townhalls happen once every two months and we were told that it was always nice to have the TV personalities working NBCU to meet the staff. This time it was Li Kim!
During this visit to Singapore, NBCU also organised a promo shoot for Li Kim at various locations around Singapore. It was a successful and productive trip and Li Kim looks forward to working closely with NBCU!
