Li Tian

Co-founder
Cornerstone Entertainment

I had spent 7 years working in the entertainment channel of SINA, the largest web-portal in China as an editor and in 2012 I moved to Los Angeles to continue my work as an entertainment journalist and slowly shifted to the production side of the industry. In 2014 I worked closely with Justin Lin's company and on a high profile co-production project between the US and China called Journey to Hollywood with some of the biggest stars from China.

Ever since then co-production between the two countries has been my playground and in 2015 I moved back to Beijing and produced a indie web-feature called Guardians of the Night with an international crew & talents and the film remains the most viewed live-action adaption based on an anime on Iqiyi (A Chinese equivalent to Netflix). In the following years I was involved in additional web-series and features as producer & writer.

l constantly travel between the US and China which provides me access to many younger and talented filmmakers from both China and the US. And would love to do projects with filmmakers/talents from all over the world.
