This is a timelapse of our facilities renovations in October 2013!
We will be posting our latest works and moods. Stay tuned!
Our facilities are renovated with our two sound studios, new production room and our three edit suits all being upgraded and renovated in anticipation of a busy 2014. Our recently renovated Sound Stage 1 has been a great success hosting Vietmedia’s production of Vietnam’s Next Top Model 2013 and our Sound Stage 2 has also been heavily booked.
After winning Best Feature Documentary Film Award at the New York City International Film Festival 2013, we are proud to announce that our documentary, “The Tale of An Phuc House”, has been awarded the Jury Prize at the 18th Vietnam Film Festival in Ha Long 2013.
This is extremely great news for the amazing people of An Phuc House. Director Ivan Tankushev and Producer Othello Khanh have received huge support from many associations around the world who have committed to building a house for these children. This will also go a long way to gaining further donations and support worldwide to better the lives of Agent Orange victims. VTV4 will also broadcast a 1-hour special about the documentary in their ‘Talk Vietnam’ program, coming soon nationwide.

A powerful glimpse into the everyday lives of twenty disabled young adults living in a small house near Saigon. They are the third generation victims of Agent Orange, the defoliant that was used during the Vietnam War. This is an inspirational tale about pride, dignity and love; the story of Mr. Quang, a man who has dedicated his life to his adopted family, helping them become self-respecting, financially independent human beings; the story of twenty exceptional people, whose disabilities brought them together under one roof; the story of ordinary people living extraordinary lives in spite of their physical conditions.
A graduate of the Bulgarian Academy of of Cinema and Theatre, Ivan Tankushev has worked in animation filmmaking, in Europe, Canada and Asia, for over three decades. His short, Bustle (1987),won prizes at international festivals, and he has collaborated on the animation of numerous American TV shows, including Family Guy (Fox) and Arthur (PBS).
These past few month Créa TV has been renovating its facility big time!
Interior Designer Michele de Albert was invited to create a fresh working environment as well as a new onsite accommodation guest house. Transparency and openness were the guidelines to her work-frame.
The production offices entrance is a bright graphic perspective leading to the new reception tiled space that opens on the producers area.
Michele incorporated modern workstations for the team of producers to work collaboratively.
The Executives wanted an open space to be working closer with their collaborators as well as being able to communicate easily.
And a large monitor linked to the network was installed for presentations and screenings.
For our new client’s lounge, Michele chose a theme of taupe tones to go along with the Quasar Khanh Nervure cast aluminum and marble furniture.
Wooden Venetian blinds were added to give a cozy atmosphere, along with a wooden back-lit bar and a transparent beer fridge as per Executive Producer Steve Mc Lennan’s request.
Final touch to the production offices, a V.I.P. lounge was created for private meetings.
Michele chose a Créa TV orange upholstery for one of the sofa as a “clin d’oeil” to the brand’s corporate color.
Créa TV wanted a new section of the compound to accommodate guests and filming crews, so the Villa was opened to the common areas.
First a bright dining room for crews and studio guests with a large wooden and metal table as a centerpiece, with convivial assorted benches.
And finally, a guestroom for incoming directors of technicians to spend the night after a long day shoot and be ready on set in the wee hours!
