LUPIN is a modern version of the series about Mr. Thief, making Omar Sy a global star and giving Europeans the confidence to compete with Hollywood.
However, thanks to Netflix, which is a model of American success, the European film industry has made a huge leap.
Netflix is investing heavily to develop into a global TV player, but when it comes to producing European series, the company and competitors Disney Plus and Amazon Prime actually have no choice.
As of 2018, EU regulations require platforms to provide at least 30% of European content to their subscribers and invest in local TV series.
Currently, hundreds of Netflix movies and TV series are being filmed throughout the European Union, and the production team and company directors are working hard on projects in France, Spain, Germany and Italy.
Netflix production director Larry Tanz (Larry Tanz) said: “When we think of European content, we think like this:’Well, which series in France will be a huge success? What kind of German series will our German subscribers like ?”Europe.
He added: “We found that the series of works are usually not divided into two categories. There are very localized series, such as Sweden’s Love and Anarchy, and Case Case Papel or Crown series.
Unlike Hollywood, Netflix hopes to establish its own company locally.
“We changed the model, starting with the model where the boss is sitting in Los Angeles, translating the script into English, and then deciding where we are today-the director is sitting in Paris, getting the script in French, and making the decision to create the series in Paris,” Tanz said.
A director in Paris is also Damien Couvreur (Damien Couvreur), he said Netflix wants to send a signal, “it is ready to commit to and take a place in French industry.”
He said: “We don’t want to repeat what we already have.” Netflix conducts unique and authentic searches.
Belgian screenwriter Sanne Nuyens knows how Netflix makes you famous.
Her series of hotels, Beuau Sejour (a science fiction thriller co-authored by Ber Van Dael) was popular on the platform and was praised by American cult writer Stephen King.
She said: “You want to write a program for a specific audience. If the audience increases, not only in Flanders or Belgium, but also in Europe and the whole world, that would be great.”
However, creating high-quality content is expensive, which is why production companies often cooperate.
