Is EuropaCorp a French-style Hollywood studio ? EuropaCorp's managing director, Pierre-Ange Le Pogam, disagrees and tries to show that this is not the case.
Le Pogam wants to create a European alternative which breaks the monopoly of American studios, an alternative which respects diverse talents and which can be exported anywhere in the world. Europacorp protects its artistic freedom and independence due to careful cost management methods which have not been questioned since it was created six years ago by Le Pogam and the film maker Luc Besson.
The company produces ten films a year and has had many box-office successes. Despite being active in all areas of film and cinema ranging from production to distribution, Europacorp has chosen a small organisational structure as its model. Rapid decision-making, English-language films, comprehensive management of the system of production and sound operations subcontracted outside the company have all helped to contribute to Europacorp's success. The company has made a profit every year since it was created and is soon to be listed on the stock exchange.

Although short-term concerns are the basis for these exchanges, the approach adopted reflects long-term issues. These include helping change the views which researchers, participants and public opinion have of the way in which private and public affairs are conducted
