Wellington’s Weta Workshop has started “importing” animators from overseas to work on a new television series. Weta has set up five Singaporean animators in New Zealand to work on a 26-episode, 3D animated series it is producing with Canadian entertainment company Nelvana, the Channelnewsasia website reports. The animation series, Jane and the Dragon, stars 12-year old Jane, a headstrong knight in the King’s Guard, and a 300-year old dragon for company. It will be broadcast in Australasia, North America and Europe early next year. [More]
