A documentary film about designers who turn
their dream into a business in Hong Kong.

Designers Inbetween is a documentary revealing Hong Kong’s creative industry through the lens of a range of start ups to industry´s leading professionals. It is an introduction to what lies in the near future for creatives; rather than working inhouse, creating micro brands and working as an independent consultant.
Documentarists, Jonathan Ramalho and Oliver Lehtonen met for the first time during their multidisciplinary studies in the Hong Kong in 2013. Without previous movie making experience the duo set out on a bootstrapping adventure through Hong Kong’s creative industries and into the wildness of China’s manufacturing.

  • I also feel like Hong Kong is somewhere in between… it´s a frontier towards western markets.

    Johan Persson
  • …I invested everything I had in the first production batch… luckily it turned out well.

    David Ericsson
  • My advice for the Chinese designers is to keep their own style.

    Ceet
  • I tried to quit my job in the first week.

    Ellis Kreuger
  • Instead of starting all this: “How´s next Tuesday”, or: “What about the Wednesday after that”… he said: “How about now!”

    Roger Ball
  • I love Hong Kong because the threshold to do something here, is this high.
