Writer Chris Roland


Zen HQ focuses on original script/projects development, new media and above-the-line services. Zen HQ is able to provide producer services to production companies in South Africa and internationally. Zen HQ provides project-consulting services, analyzing the creative and financial viability of projects at the early stage of development, designed to help filmmakers and investors identify everything from creative, logistical, marketing, sales, legal and financial objectives.

Zen HQ’s also focus is new media distribution and is currently developing two on-line services, a search engine and an on-line distribution channel, which will launch in early 2007.

Of Zen HQ Chris Roland says "All too often projects are not specifically devised or crafted." He goes on to say "Zen HQ provides clear and concise methods for creating and launching film and TV projects based on a sound set of criteria. Nothing can guarantee a hit, but properly crafting a project at all levels from script development to marketing strategies simultaneously, is exactly how studios and indies achieve success. It’s not a mysterious process. The producer or investor who argues there is no backend in films haven’t done their homework."

Chris Roland has been involved in developing, financing and producing films and TV projects for over 20 years in South Africa, Europe and the US. All creative and production elements for projects financed through SAFFCO are assessed and approved by Roland.
