Tencent Penguin Pictures held a special documentary-sharing workshop — part of its “Wonderful Elective Course” program — at the Shanghai Vancouver Film School yesterday. 

Professionals from the BBC and Tencent Penguin Pictures talked with college students about new, cutting-edge technology and trends in making documentaries.

Three new documentary productions from the BBC, including “Big Cats,” “Animals With Cameras” and “Earth’s Natural Wonders,” were also shown during the course.

BBC Worldwide CMO Jaclyn Lee-Joe and Zhu Lexian, an official from Tencent Penguin Pictures Documentary Studio, told students that this year the two sides will strengthen cooperation in documentary production, distribution and commercial licensing.

In line with these goals, BBC’s new nature documentary series “Natural Born Rebels” will be aired on Tencent’s v.qq.com in April. 

A few more co-productions of original Chinese stories will also be told to the world, and more veteran documentary filmmakers will be invited to share their expertise and experience with Chinese audiences.
