Polygon Pictures plans joint company in Malaysia for 'Transformers Prime' Series

ANIME NEWS: Polygon Pictures plans joint company in Malaysia for 'Transformers Prime' series - AJW by The Asahi Shimbun

So, Silver Ant Animation Studios will be teaming up with Polygon Pictures for S3. The Malaysian company has this kind of animation in their ranks:



I think it could work for TFP's Beast Hunter season.

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.
