First post

Hi. Ok so this is my very first post on my own blog. I used to have something called the CEO's journal on our very first Zigzag website but we decided to tank it when we closed down our portal and decided to go a different way. Here I just thought it would be interesting to experiment again and try something similiar but keeping it much casual. Lots of interesting things are happening for me and my company so I'll just keep posting things as they happen.

So what do I mean by "different way"? Well Zigzag Asia is now a production company of Japan car programs. We are a production company but we spend a lot of our time marketing and selling our programs. Producing something makes no money unless you sell it. If you sell, you make a profit and go on making more DVDs or do other fun stuff. Well, enough of that. I can get into that at another post.

What do we produce? We make Japanese car programs called Best Motoring International and Hot Version International which are originally produced by a Japanese company called Kodansha. Best Motoring has been around in Japan for about 15 years. It's a video magazine that tests cars and battles them out on the tracks by professional Japanese race car drivers. Hot Version is also a video magazine that tests and races tuned cars. This show is hosted by Keiichi Tsuchiya who is also known as the Drift King.
We're really fortunate that the international market has accepted our programs. I'm just happy that we are able to provide something fresh from Japan to car fans everywhere.

Kodansha is our biggest partner since most of our programs are originally from Kodansha. We produce programs from scratch as well like Tuning into Tokyo which was a show coverage show we produced. Recently we produced a 20 minute promotional DVD for Valvoline called Drifting 101. Drifting 101 will be handed out at every Hot Import Nights show this year. We're very happy and proud to be a part of this project. It is a win-win situation for everybody involved.
