Australian Animation and VFX company Animal Logic (The LEGO Movie, Happy Feet) has recently partnered with X Factor creator Simon Cowell’s Syco Entertainment in order to focus on creating a line of animated and hybrid live-action/animated films.
The two companies already have a number of projects in their slate, but both are planning to leverage each of their respective relationships in the film and music industry in order to bring together world-class talent for their projects. Their first project, which is a hybrid live-action/animated music-based film, will be released in 2016.
“Our partnership aims to create distinctive movies combining great music, groundbreaking visuals and amazing stories,” says Animal Logic’s Jason Lust. “With teams based in the U.K., U.S. and Australia, we couldn’t be more excited to embark on this new venture together.”
