Maya Entertainment clinches Rs 2.5-crore overseas animation projects

Maya Entertainment Limited (MEL), a leading computer animation and special effects content provider to cinema and television, has bagged Rs 2.5-crore animation projects for TV programmes from different companies in the US and UK.

The international animation projects outsourced to MEL include a high profile BBC special for Christmas and another special for Nickelodeon. According to Rajesh Turakhia, CEO, MEL, his company would be recruiting 150 animators besides upgrading its Mumbai Studio by incorporating latest technologies in hardware and software for timely and efficient handling of these projects. And for this purpose, MEL is taking the services of Intel. Meanwhile, MEL has also been commissioned by a US company to create environments and animations in 3D games in a gaming project.

Yet another international television channel, Cartoon Network has acquired animation series 'Jungle Tales' from New Delhi-based TV production house Moving Pictures that specialises in 3D animation. This first long format 3D animation series from India would have its world premiere on Cartoon Network.

Mumbai-based animation major Toonz Animation India has also created a buzz by signing a MoU with the Dubai-based Seagull TV Productions to create business hubs for animation in all parts of the world.
