Malaysia's first stereoscopic 3D animation

10 Nov – Malaysia's first stereoscopic 3D animated feature film about an alien invasion that takes place on the eve of World War I had reportedly made waves at the current American Film Market (AFM).


"War Of The Worlds: Goliath", a local production by Tripod Entertainment, was picked up by international film and television sales organisation Epic Pictures Group for global sales.

"With Epic on board, we will reach the many thousands of fans waiting to see our little epic," said its executive producer Kevin Eastman, who is also the co-creator of the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles", in a statement yesterday.

The AFM, an annual event held in Santa Monica, California, is one of the premier global marketplaces for the film business, where production and distribution deals are the main focus of the participants.

Set in 1914, it is about a massive attack by Martians on the eve of World War I, with characters including Lieutenant Shah, a Malayan warrior-prince skilled in the use of the keris (dagger).

In the statement, the National Film Development Corporation Malaysia (Finas) said several other local films had also made waves at the international event.

They films include "The Malay Chronicles: Bloodlines", "SeeFood" and "Between Two Skies".

Finas added that another 3D animated feature film, "SeeFood", secured a series of record-breaking distribution deals to multiple nations in Asia, Latin America and Europe.
