Cinesite opens major animation studio in Montréal, Canada.
These days, “Klaus” has been the talk of many. Wondering why? Many press releases came out revealing it will be the first project to be produced by Cinesite’s new animation studio in Montreal.
Cinesite announced it will produce nine animated movies in Montreal in five years, with the help of the Quebec government. The first of these nine films will be Sergio Pablos’s “Klaus”.
“Drawing on the sophisticated techniques developed over the last 20 years in the visual effects industry, we wanted to build a new creative home for the world’s best storytellers, writers, directors and animators,” said Eamonn Butler, Cinesite’s Head of Animation. “Whether you are an established filmmaker or an emerging writer, we want you to think of our studio as a new destination where your work can be nurtured and flourish.”
It is now public that Comic Animations will join The SPA Studios and Atresmedia Cine to co-produce the animated feature Klaus at the new facility. The holiday season film will be written and directed by Sergio Pablos (Despicable Me, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Hercules, Tarzan) and produced by Jinko Gotoh (The Little Prince, Finding Nemo). The project will be a treaty co-production with Spain.
