Last night I attended a fantastic event to mark the launch of “Kunjanimation 2012” – South Africa’s only national event exclusively dedicated to celebrating the art and business of animation. Now if that doesn’t sound like a recipe for success, I don’t know what does.
South Africa’s answer to Madagascar 3? The new “Adventures in Zambezia” – South Africa’s latest full-length animated feature film. Hot on the tail of previous animated films to come out of the country, namely “Lion of Judah” (2011) and “Jock of the Bushveld” (2010), it’s set to release in SA in Summer 2012. Cape-Town based Triggerfish Studios gives Dreamworks a run for its money with this touching African-inspired story about a young falcon leaving home to make a life for himself in ‘Bird City’.
