Sydney uber-animation house Animal Logic has secured the production for Warner Bros new animated feature film project based on Lego.

The announcement confirms an earlier Variety story that Warner would greenlight the project, and will see around $AU48 million being spent in NSW which will include commitments to industry research, development and training.

The NSW Government was behind the push, beating the US and Canada as the international production location with assistance from NSW Trade & Investment’s State Investment Attraction Scheme.

Acting NSW Premier and Minister for Trade and Investment Andrew Stoner said the film will employ over 200 people during its peak.

“Lego will be an innovative film incorporating the latest animation and photo-real techniques which will demonstrate the strength of NSW creative technology skills and enhance the international reputation of Sydney as a film location.

"Not only will the securing of LEGO enable Animal Logic to retain staff through an ongoing work schedule but it will also place Sydney in a strong position to secure further work should sequels be planned later,” Stoner said.

Animal Logic CEO Zareh Nalbandian said the LEGO deal was testament that Sydney is now established as one of the world’s great digital animation centres.

“With LEGO, Animal Logic continues to develop and produce ground breaking digital entertainment and to build a talent base that’s second to none anywhere in the world.” ®
