Cam­bo­dia’s ithinka­sia Drawn to New Projects

Animation Magazine - - Event Focus -

C am­bo­dia-based an­i­ma­tion stu­dio ithinka­sia has had a busy year. Af­ter wrap­ping work on two ac­claimed an­i­mated fea­tures — Fu­nan (which won a Cristal at An­necy) and the up­com­ing Buñuel in the Labyrinth of the Tur­tles — stu­dio founder and pres­i­dent Justin Ste­wart will be seek­ing new part­ners and clients at the MIPCOM mar­ket this month. “As a stu­dio, we believe that creative in­dus­tries can be used as a tool for cre­at­ing sus­tain­able so­cial im­pact in de­vel­op­ing coun­tries, and we plan to repli­cate our proven model: one stu­dio, mul­ti­ple lo­ca­tions,” says Ste­wart.

The stu­dio, which is also pro­vid­ing an­i­ma­tion ser­vices for the Ir­ish preschool se­ries Joe & Jack, along with the on­line de­liv­er­ables of all 39 episodes, is aim­ing to be a pre­mium hub for out­sourced an­i­ma­tion ser­vices, co- pro­duc­tions and orig­i­nal con­tent de­vel­op­ment. Ste­wart prom­ises: “At ithinka­sia, we will never com­pro­mise on the qual­ity of our work and we will never lose our so­cial en­ter­prise man­date. Our artists are our stu­dio.” www.ithinka­
