German production company Studio 100 Media will set up its own animation studio in Munich.
With workstations for up to 40 artists, Studio Isar Animation will be responsible for CGI work such as modelling, texturing, shading, lighting, FX, compositing and rendering for the company’s film productions. In addition, it will also offer its services for commissioned works by third parties and co-productions.
Together with its own animation studios Flying Bark Productions in Australia, Studio 100 Animation in France and Little Airplane Productions in the USA, Studio 100 Group can now provide all segments of upcoming film productions completely in-house, according to the company.
The animation studio will be set up in Neumarkter Straße in Munich, the headquarters of Studio 100 Media. The opening is planned for October this year.
As a first project, Studio Isar Animation will take over the CGI works for the movie Maya the Bee – The Golden Orb (working title, completion planned for 2020). Studio 100 Media will produce the third theatrical film about the famous bee with Flying Bark Productions. The film has already been pre-sold internationally including the USA, France and Poland.
