MUMBAI: The City based Animation Bridge; an animation studio will be producing animation film and series for French, Japanese and UK producers of animation entertainment products.

The company is also looking at producing programs of popular comic characters of which the company wants to acquire rights.

A Company official said, “We will be co-producing a 3D series called Stoobie Cooper, with UK-based Richwood Entertainment and Bangalore-based Paprikaas Animation Studios.” While Richwood will handle the pre-production, Paprikaas will do the production, he added.

“The production is likely to start in the second quarter of this year and at present we will be producing a six-episode series in a DVD format,” company official informed. The project size is likely to be around $4.5 million for the six-episode series, he added.

“This apart, we will also be co-producing Bob Screen, with a French production company called Digital Salade.”

The production of the spy thriller animated series in a DVD format is likely to start in mid-2005, he added.

Animation Bridge has also entered into co-production of a 26-episode action-oriented 2D series called Guardians of Luna with a Japanese producer. “This series is likely to go on air in August 2006,” Ghose said.

Michael Reaves of Batman: The Animated Series fame is the story-editor for the series and the key animation is being done in Japan, he added.

“The character design is being done by Osamu Tsuruyama, Sho Murase and John Nevarez,” Ghose said. It is a typical action adventure and is being done in the Japanese format of animation called Anime, he added. Guardians of Luna is a $6.5 million project.

Animation Bridge has also acquired the rights to a book property called The Blood Jaguar by Michael Payne.

“Ideally we want to make it as a film for the theatres, on a scale as large as The Lion King,” Ghose said. Animation Bridge is at present looking for some co-producer for the project.
