Head of Scripted

Conor Zorn is the Head of Scripted at Beach House Pictures. He is responsible for the development, packaging and sales of scripted series and feature length films in key markets from the US to Asia, including identifying and reviewing new IP (i.e. articles, books, original scripts), creating and overseeing the creation of development materials (i.e. treatments, scripts, trailers), packaging talent (i.e. writer, actor, director), pitching them to platform buyers, agents, talents and studios.

Conor began his career working in television packaging and motion picture talent at Creative Artists Agency in Los Angeles. At Walt Disney Pictures, he joined the newly formed Chinese language film department under Tony To and Alan Bergman, where he helped establish a co-production joint-venture with Shanghai Media Group to develop local language content for the studio. The collaboration would go on to produce several films such as Lu Chuan’s ‘Born in China’ and Wang Yin’s “The Dreaming Man.” At Base- FX, a renowned VFX production house in Beijing, Conor was charged with overseeing all aspects of development and production while working on the supernatural series “Fog Zone” at Tencent Video, “Sky Fire” an action disaster feature by Simon West, and “Wish Dragon” an animated feature co-production with Sony Animation directed by Chris Appelhans and starring Jackie Chan.

At Tencent Pictures, Conor took on the role of Director of International focusing primarily on US studio co-financing and China distribution deals such as Sony’s “Venom” and “Men in Black: International,” Paramount’s “Terminator: Dark Fate” and “Bumblebee,” and Legendary Pictures’ “Warcraft” and “Kong: Skull Island.” On Tencent’s original content side, Conor worked closely with the local film team for Lu Zhengyu’s “The One” and Han Yan’s “Animal World.” On Tencent’s international front, he would run development with Tencent Comics on IP titles such ‘Zombie Brother’ and ‘Killer Maid’ to further the company’s mandate of creating global franchises.

After leaving Tencent, Conor co-founded Little River Entertainment, a company focused on content financing and development in Southeast Asia. Projects include Banjong Pisanthanakun’s “Metal Casket” a Thai true crime thriller set at Amazon Studios, Anthony Chen’s “Ponti” a Singaporean coming-of-age series at Apple, and Rae Red’s “Balaraw” a Philippines supernatural horror set at Netflix. The company also produced Pen-ek Ratanaruang’s latest feature “Morte Cucina” with 185 Films.
