Thomson’s Technicolor Services unit in pact with DreamWorks for animation facilities in India

Thomson’s Technicolor Services division has announced an alliance with DreamWorks Animation to set up animation facilities in India. The alliance will leverage Thomson’s recent investment in Paprikaas Animation Studios, a Bangalore-based animation and gaming content provider, which offers creative, technical and production capabilities to design and produce computer-generated (CG) animation for feature films, television programming, commercials and video games.

Frank E Dangeard, Chairman and CEO, Thomson, said, “We are honoured to combine our capabilities with those of DreamWorks Animation, and we are committed to creating a centre of animation excellence with DreamWorks in India.”

An official communiqué stated, “Strengthening Paprikaas Animation Studios’ creative, technical and computer animation capabilities would provide Technicolor Services with additional resources and capacity to meet the growing demand for high-end 3D digital animation. The alliance also demonstrates Technicolor’s success in implementing its unique integrated services strategy to support the media, entertainment and communications sector in its transition to fully digital technologies.”

Ann Daly, COO, DreamWorks Animation, said, “Through this strategic alliance, our objective is to tap into and further develop the gifted talent base in India, with the potential to do the kind of feature-level work for which we are renowned worldwide.”

As part of the alliance and in collaboration with Thomson’s Technicolor Services division, DreamWorks Animation will assist Technicolor in the recruitment, training and development of top-tier animation talent to the Paprikaas facility in India.
