TAICCA Selects Something Special & AR Asia Productions for LEAP


The Taiwan Creative Content Agency (TAICCA) has selected Something Special and AR Asia Productions to spearhead the LEAP Creative Lab project, which aims to elevate the creativity of Taiwanese producers.

The year-long project is divided into two parts: a master class in Taipei and a creative development workshop in Seoul. The master class in Taipei is scheduled to take place from April 10 to 12 and will see a group of 50 selected producers and companies get insights on creating unscripted shows and maximizing their international appeal from instructors from South Korea.

Eight standout companies from the initial cohort of 50 will be selected to take part in the creative workshop in the latter half of 2024. They will get intensive mentoring from Korean professionals and collaboratively develop new unscripted IPs with the aim of fostering innovation and cross-cultural exchange within the content creation landscape.

“We are honored to be chosen by TAICCA, along with AR Asia Productions, for this exciting initiative,” said InSoon Kim, executive VP and head of content at Something Special. “LEAP represents a unique opportunity to nurture talent, facilitate knowledge exchange, and cultivate fresh creative perspectives within the Taiwanese content industry.”

Anne Chan, CEO of AR Asia Productions, added, “We are excited to collaborate with Something Special and TAICCA on this transformative project. LEAP underscores our shared commitment to fostering creativity and driving innovation across borders.”
