Two animation firms close in Singapore
Two Singapore-based animation companies have closed down in recent days.
Egg Story Creative Production announced its demise and the redundancy of some 30 staff in the week before Christmas.
That was followed by the announcement that a rescue attempt at Storm Lion, which had dismissed most of its staff earlier in the year, had finally proved fruitless.
Launched in 2005 by Nickson Fong (pictured) an animator with credits on Hollywood pictures including Shrek, Starship Troopers, Godzilla, Stuart Little, Matrix Reloaded and Matrix Revolutions, Egg Story was working on two productions.
