About Cinesite Animation
Cinesite Animation is a world-class feature animation studio. Our talented team brings to life the work of some of the best global writers, directors, acting and musical talent to create wonderfully funny family animation feature films with the highest production values. Our animators, supervisors and technical directors are highly experienced in creating ambitious, original work which delights audiences.
We are currently in production, with 3QU Media, on a slate of films, the first of which will release in October 2017, as well as with Sony Pictures Animation on their festive production The Star. We are also developing nine exciting original productions, including four in association with Investissement Québec.
We opened in Montreal in 2014, at the centre of a creative hub in a region with a long history of excellence in technology, advertising, games and educational facilities, film and media. In 2017 we announced the acquisition of Vancouver-based animation company Nitrogen Studios, the talented team behind TV series Thomas and Friends, R-rated feature film Sausage Party and Dreamworks’ forthcoming TV series Trollhunters. Our two animation studios are set up to work independently, with the ability to share work as we continue to grow.
Dave Rosenbaum, CCO: “To grow our studio with impressive capacity and potential, to support talented filmmakers, and to deliver great animated films to a worldwide audience is an exciting opportunity. Let’s start with the best stories and storytellers and make our teams of artists the centre of the next animation nexus.”
