Off The Fence Opens Office In Singapore

Ellen Windemuth, Managing Director at Off the Fence, a leading independent production and distribution company, has announced the opening of a dedicated Off the Fence office in Singapore, led by Tony Chow, a well respected figure in the television production industry in the region.
Continuing Off the Fence’s ongoing expansion, which recently saw the opening of an office in Cape Town, South Africa, this new office is a further demonstration of the company’s strategy to take its production bases worldwide - utilising and developing local talent whilst adopting a global outlook.
Appointed as Director of Off the Fence Singapore, Chow’s remit is to manage the strategic development of the company’s activity in the region, working closely with local Singapore producers, as well as Southeast Asia / Asia production companies and broadcasters to produce and co-produce programming. Chow is head of Singapore's Association of Independent Television Production Companies and has worked extensively in the broadcast television arena primarily in the advertising and corporate areas of film, video and TV production. Known for his production support for local and international co-productions, he has produced, directed and written numerous high rating television series.
Ellen Windemuth commented: “Tony Chow is highly regarded in the global television production industry and an active practitioner in generating higher quality content for television programming and innovative training schemes. He also understands our brand and shares our company values. We are confident that the mix of our global experience and Tony’s expertise will enable us to take Off the Fence’s co productions to a new level”.
Tony Chow added: “This is a fantastic challenge for me and I look forward to opening up the wealth of opportunities and resources available in Singapore and the surrounding regions to the Off the Fence team as they embark on this global expansion strategy. Providing opportunities to the many talented local people in the area is very important to me and I am positive that the backing of such a forward thinking company will help them to develop the international expertise they need to compete in the global marketplace, as well as providing the highest quality programming for international audiences.”
