The Creative Content Industry Guild (CCIG) and Persatuan Seniman Malaysia (SENIMAN) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) today, to facilitate CCIG’s aim to enhance the level of professionalism in the creative industry and raise the standards of local artists.

CCIG is an independent NGO established to represent practitioners in the Creative Content industry. It serves as Malaysia’s one stop accreditation body to increase the professionalism of human capital in the creative industry.

Now, members of SENIMAN can take part in the benefits and opportunities initiated by CCIG such as being listed in the central database and attracting local and foreign investors and productions, increase the level of professionalism among industry players through CCIG’s professional training, and many others.

Furthermore, CCIG is currently in the process of conceptualising and implementing 7 main Blueprints that encompass 7 clusters such as Film & TV, Animation, Radio, Advertising, Music, Games and Virtual World. The Blueprints are set to elevate the creative content industry to a more competitive scale and it is expected to be completed by the end of 2016.

“CCIG plays a vital role to SENIMAN as they are the first point of reference and a resource centre for experts in different specialisations. Hence, they have the resource to facilitate and support the creative industry to compete on a global scale,” said Rozaidi Jamil, President of SENIMAN.

Mr. Jurey Latiff Rosli, Chairman of CCIG reiterated, “CCIG is happy to facilitate SENIMAN and plan for a strategic collaboration with international alliances such as the Producers Guild of America (PGA) to further enhance the quality of our local producers. We believe this will greatly improve our level of expertise.”

Recently, CCIG has collaborated with Iskandar Regional Development Authority (IRDA) to aid the agency in getting experts views from industry professionals from Pinewood Studio, Johor Bahru. This is to ensure that the initiatives undertaken by CCIG meet international standard expectations.
