Mediaplex is still an important partner to Stonebridge Capital in investing in the content project. Mediaplex has joined as fund investor of our contents venture fund. 

Mediaplex is a film production, investment, and distribution studio established in 2002 by the Orion Group. Orion Group took full advantage of their subsidiaries and industry network leveraging their cinema distribution channel, Megabox as well as their television distribution channel OnMedia and other cable networks to maximize results in their film investment/ distribution/ marketing efforts.

 

They were able to grow enormously in a short period of time, producing series of mega hits. By producing mega hits such as "Taegukgi" which topped box office records in 2004, "Marathon" in 2005, "Welcome to Dongmak Village", and "The Family Crisis", Mediaplex has not only reached unprecedented success as an individual film company but also opened a new era for the Korean film industry.

Stonebridge Capital invested in Mediaplex early, doubling returns on investment. Also, even after our exit, we have worked closely together in co-investing in promising films.
