I look back with fond memories to when we started the first 3D long-form animation line in South Africa, some 20 years ago! It was a very special time, and although the learning curve was steep it was also an amazing, fun ride.
The first project to get the green light in 3D animation by the DTI was a little wildlife/3D combo series called “Ed & Eppa in the Wild“.
No one in the country had attempted such a production. I immediately sensed that it was going to be an enormous collaborative effort and tried to make contact with the (back then) big four animation companies.
