    So they're expanding their studio to other countries to deal with increased demand?

    I'm honestly surprised it took this long: even My Little Pony moved some of its production to...Singapore? by season two.

    Given Beast Hunters is a shorter season, I'm guessing this means one of two things:

    1. The workload is increased THAT much on BH (new assets/characters/etc)
    2. Polygon's been getting more work as a result of their work on Prime, and needs to expand.

    I just think its kind of Amazing. With traditional Cell animation and a trained eye, you call tell the subtle differences in design when different animation houses produce different episodes of the same series. however with a CG series, it will be interesting t see how apparaent (if at all) the differences are. All we have seen is the teaser from NYCC. I'm curious now to know, was that Polygon or Silver Ant Animation?? I would like to see a sample of something from TF: Prime animated by SilverAnt to see if it is up to par with Polygon.

    Well that's cool. If nothing else it's probably to get the new models done on time.

    so ... may? if this partnership just announced bulk of work not done/begun yet or what?

    w/e how long it takes is how long it takes

    all i ask is for is a season 4 at least 16 long.

    that is all.

    In B4 "IMMA CHAAAARGIN' MALAYSIA!!!!!!!!"

    Really though, It was my understanding that TF:p  S3 was due to air in February, and here were only 3 months out. Am I to understand that S3 hasn't been started on yet, or are they merely helping to finish what's already been started? I just hope it's ready in time, and that we don't have a massive delay.

    Other possibility: This studio, being in Malaysia, is willing to do the job for much cheaper (and hopefully at comparable quality).

    Oh wow... I have a friend who worked in animation. I think he actually worked for these guys. I'll have to confirm if this is the same company...

    If they can help Polygon Pictures keep up with demand and keep the quality up, awesome news!

    I must say, however, that after watching that video someone really liked Finding Nemo and borrowed A LOT from it. Wow!

    With luck, this means that we're getting more characters.

    As well as new environments, since they have to finish modelling New Kaon.

    Hopefully this isn't a case of Polygon handing off designs and models to a lesser animation company to save costs.

    No, only that they had finished recording it. There has been nothing about all of the animation being done.

    I was under the impression that they were quite far into the production of Beast hunters... or is that not the animation production. Curious what stage they are at with the completed episodes?...

    All impressive stuff non the less.

    Obviously as a fan of TFP I'd prefer the first one to be true, but hey, both options are good news. :D
