The company collaborates with large film production studios that bring experience and talent that is not necessarily present at Apple Studios. In a move to add quality content, the Cupertino company has just signed a major contract. We will explain everything to you !

Apple x Skydance Media

Created in 2006 by David Ellison, Skydance Media quickly acquired a international reputation with his participation in big budget productions like World War Z, Terminator Genisys, Six Underground, The Tomorrow War, Jack Reacher… Today, Skydance Media continues to work on Hollywood films that will hit the big screen soon, but the company has also other ambitions.

After collaborating with Amazon Prime Video and Netflix, the American production company looks to the future with Apple Studios for the creation of films, a new type of partnership after having produced series for the Apple TV+ catalogue.
