Sparky tale gets nod at Asian TV awards

SINGAPORE - An animation series by a home-grown company has been nominated for the Best 3D Animated Programme award at the Asian Television Awards 2012.

One Stormy Night, by Sparky Animation - a CGI-animation production firm - is a 26-part television series about the friendship between May, a young goat, and Gabu, a wolf who is also May's best friend.

A collaboration with Baku Enterprise and Duckbill Entertainment Japan, One Stormy Night is based on a Japanese children's book by award-winning author Yuiichi Kimura.

"(The nomination) certainly proves that we have had the correct formula, with great story from Japan and quality CGI work from Sparky Singapore," said Dr K. C. Wong, the founder and chief executive of Sparky Animation.

They have each won the chance to tour the firm's studio in New Industrial Road.
