Tailchaser’s Song

Ani­me­trop­o­lis has engaged Inter­na­tional Dig­i­tal Artists as pro­duc­tion part­ner and lead ani­ma­tion unit for the CG-animated fea­ture film adap­ta­tion of Tailchaser’s Song, the best-selling fan­tasy novel by author Tad Williams.

The announce­ment was made Sat­ur­day in Santa Mon­ica, California.

Ear­lier this year, IDA became the first Japan­ese stu­dio ever nom­i­nated for a Visual Effects Soci­ety Award for ani­ma­tion. It was rec­og­nized in the Out­stand­ing Achieve­ment in an Ani­mated Short cat­e­gory for its ground-breaking Cat Sh*t One, which chron­i­cles an intense hostage res­cue mis­sion by an intre­pid (and adorable) pair of bunny rab­bit commandos.

We are thrilled and hon­ored to be team­ing up with IDA,” said pro­ducer and Ani­me­trop­o­lis part­ner Paul Alvarado-Dykstra. “We searched long and hard to find the per­fect ani­ma­tion stu­dio part­ner for this project, and IDA couldn’t be a more ideal fit to ful­fill our vision of pro­duc­ing a high-quality, family-friendly, CG-animated inde­pen­dent film as our first project.”

The qual­ity of CG ani­mal char­ac­ter ani­ma­tion that IDA achieved in Cat Sh*t One made our entire indus­try take notice, and demon­strated how ide­ally suited they are for this project,” com­mented pro­ducer and Ani­me­trop­o­lis part­ner Saman­tha Inoue-Harte. “We’re very excited to work with them to bring Tad Williams’ beloved char­ac­ters and story to life on the big screen.”

We will do our best to pro­duce a great ani­ma­tion by uti­liz­ing the tech­niques and cre­ativ­ity Japan­ese artists have built up through his­tory from cel ani­ma­tion to CG ani­ma­tion,” added pro­ducer and IDA pres­i­dent Junya Okabe.

Alvarado-Dykstra and Inoue-Harte are pro­duc­ing with Okabe in asso­ci­a­tion with Fire Duck prin­ci­pals Chris Rydo and Bethany Rhoades, co-writers of the screen­play. Williams is cre­ative con­sul­tant on the film.
