Having a number of SP interns in Sparky, we welcomed the Principal and CEO of the polytechnic to take a tour around the studio. The main intent of this visit was for the principal to have a first look of how his graduates fair in the animation industry and if the training provided in SP is indeed relevant to meet the needs/expectations of this industry. It was a fruitful event which ended in a casual get-to-know session with his SP graduates in Sparky.
Sparky was recently humbled by the arrival of Bandai Visual at our studio. The Japanese co-producer for our TV series, One Stormy Night, was in town and popped by for a tour of the facilities in hopes to get acquainted with the company’s workflow. Bandai Visual Company, Limited, is a Japanese anime, film production and distribution enterprise, established by Bandai Company, Limited and a subsidiary of Namco Bandai Holdings, Inc., which is based in Minato, Tokyo, Japan.
Sparky Animation recently hosted the delegates from MDA (Media Development Authority), on a visit around the studio.
CEO of MDA, Ms Koh Lin-Net was the guest of honour during this momentous occasion.
The main intent of the visit was for MDA to gain a better insight into the Animation industry in Singapore and ways for the organization to render support.
