Netherlands-based il Luster Productions is developing three feature projects. Thanks to the Dutch Filmfund, the production house has received 200,000 Euros to aid in the advancement of feature animation production in the Netherlands.
il Luster is in pre-production on a Dutch Santa Claus film from the award-winning team behind the children's special PAUL AND THE DRAGON.
