Wizart Animation is a Russian CG animation studio. We create, develop, produce and distribute…
Read about Russian animation industry in June issue of Animation Magazine (with comments from WIzart’s Producer and Head of Distribution)
“… Other films have found markets abroad more successful, such as Wizart, whose fairy tale features like The Snow Queen and its se- quel have done big business overseas. “One- hundred percent of our content is made for the international market, but it works in the Rus- sian market as well,” says Diana Yurinova, head of international distribution”.
“… While the industry is growing thanks to government funding, those quality issues re- main a concern especially as the Russian fare increasingly has to compete with mov- ies made by more experienced filmmakers abroad. Some studios, like Wizart, train their own animators and, when needed, hire free- lancers from abroad, says Wizart producer Yuri Moskvin”.
