London based animation company Blue Zoo has managed to bring in a large investment from China by pairing with China UK Animation Company (CU Animation).
They announced that the joint venture will result in a new company known as Lanzu. This company will provide finance for a selection of new projects, including an animated feature film.
This is great news for the UK animation industry. It shows that companies outside the UK are still looking to us to provide top class animation work. This is most likely helped by the UK tax breaks for animation that are now provided by the government.
Well done Blue Zoo!
