This is a fanart of Buster Moon, from the upcoming feature film “Sing!” (directed by Garth Jennings and produced at Illumination Mac Guff Paris). I worked on this film as a story artist for almost 3 years (!!!), my first work experience since I graduated, and I had a BLAST. I also did some costume design. Fashion for animals y’all !
But yeah, now that I left the studio, I feel kinda nostalgic ( ; 3 ; )/
“The news that Comcast dismissed Wednesday as a tawdry ‘rumor’ is now official: The cable giant says it will pay $41 a share in cash for DreamWorks Animation shares.
DWA shares opened up nearly 24% to about $39.92. That represents a 49.2% jump this week, including a pop after news of the companies’ talks leaked. DWA hasn’t traded this high since early 2010.
The companies expect the deal to close by year end. If antitrust officials block the acquisition, then Comcast may have to pay the studio a $200 million break up fee.
NBCU chief Steve Burke says that DWA 'will help us grow our film, television, theme parks and consumer products businesses for years to come. We have enjoyed extraordinary success over the last six years in animation with the emergence of Illumination Entertainment and its brilliant team at Illumination Mac Guff studio. The prospects for our future together are tremendous. We are fortunate to have Illumination founder Chris Meledandri to help guide the growth of the DreamWorks Animation business in the future.'”
The film was animated in the French studio Mac Guff in Paris, and although a US production, it was written and directed by Spaniards and Frenchmen, making Despicable Me a very cross-cultural production.
