Tony Maddox, Managing Director, CNN International
Our UAE expansion is one of our boldest editorial undertakings of recent years and one that builds on our existing news-gathering in the region. For a global news organisation, the Middle East was the logical choice for an investment of this scale. Our new operation in Abu Dhabi will enable us to continue to meet and exceed the demands of our audiences at a time when many of our competitors have to retrench.
Estelle Hughes, Director and Executive Producer, 3Line Media
We are looking forward to collaborating with twofour54 ibtikar to shape the project directly for the Arab world. The MENA region has one of the world’s fastest growing child populations with an increasing demand for relevant and high-quality children’s content.
Edward Borgerding, Chief Executive Officer, Abu Dhabi Media Company
At the Abu Dhabi Media Company, we look to work with partners who understand our business, which is why we turned to twofour54 when we were looking to implement a range of training initiatives. The twofour54 tadreeb wide selection of courses offered training solutions for our employees, and the relevance of the courses and quality of instructors delivering the training was excellent. Our employees have not only enhanced their own skills, but these new skills have contributed to raising the professionalism and business performance of our company.
Frederic Sichler, President of Rotana Studios
By combining the experience, forces and means of Rotana Studios and twofour54 we will be able to offer to TV viewers films at the highest technical and artistic standards possible. It will also help new talents to emerge and bring a new generation under the spot lights. TV fans like thrillers but they like also quality. Our target is to give them both.
Award winning film director, Walid Al Awadi
twofour54 will provide a good launching platform to provide Arab content to international audiences. The aim of C Sky Pictures is to bridge the media gap between the Arab region and the western media productions and create an umbrella for budding Arab talent.
