Corsham Entertainment Starts 2D Australian Feature
Created 08/25/2003 - 23:00
Corsham Entertainment, a new TV and film production company in the U.K., is developing IN FOR THE KRILL, a 2D animated feature from Australian director Greg Holfeld. This dark "penguin-noir" is a follow up to his short "BLACK AND WHITE RED ALL OVER," a feature shown at the St. Kilda and Adelaide International Film Festivals and is making the international festival circuit.
Corsham was recently formed by Oscar-winning Gary Kurtz (producer of AMERICAN GRAFFITI, STAR WARS, THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK and DARK CRYSTAL), Richard Bazley (a lead animator on Disneys HERCULES and POCAHONTAS plus Warner Bros.' OSMOSIS JONES and THE IRON GIANT), and writer Alastair Swinnerton (co-creator of THE BASKERVILLES and LEGOs BIONICLE).
Corsham Entertainment gets its name from the location of Bazleys studio within the Bath Studios complex at Corsham, Wiltshire, which will be Corsham Entertainments production base. Corsham Entertainment intends to animate many of its productions in-house, drawing on the area's considerable wealth of animation talent, according to the principals, with the exception of those projects already under co-pro agreements.
