"We have found Amanda to be a pleasure to work with. She has a terrific knowledge of the Korean TV landscape and also the cultural differences that can be one of the challenges of doing business in the territory. She is energetic, tenacious, business-like and fun; we’re looking forward to an ongoing relationship."

"It is always a pleasure to work with Amanda on projects. She has a deep knowledge of the industry and is impressively up to date on new sources of production funding opportunities. We are very choosy about the companies that we work alongside and we are pleased to count Amanda and The Bridge in that select group."

"Amanda helped Awen to source and secure funding for two documentary projects for Awen as well as helping us build a productive and and strong co-production relationship in South Korea – without Amanda and The Bridge our two projects would not have seen the light of day. I strongly recommend that any producer seeking to break into Asia contact Amanda."
Arwyn Evans | Executive Producer | Awen Media
"My sincerest gratitude goes to Amanda Groom for leading the promotion and the discussion after the screening of IRIS so well, and turning them into meaningful moments. I was immensely surprised by how passionate she is about the Korean wave. For that, I dare to thank her as a representative of Korea. I’ve got an impression that the Korea and the UK relationship is at such beginning.
The two countries, Korea and the UK, can only be reached from one place to the other after 12-hours-long flight; however, if there are more opportunities of learning about each other via exchange of cultures and TV co-production projects, I am sure it would be beneficial and great for both countries. On top of that, Amanda’s passion and ability will undoubtedly be great additions. If perchance, I would also like to partake in these prospective projects. Indeed, there may be a case of misunderstanding or a discord, but I am relieved that Amanda will be there for both countries. With certainty, Amanda’s bright smile, devotion for both nations, and her talents will help these two countries in overcoming any possible obstacle and bringing success. I sincerely wish her a good luck and may God bless her."
