‘Mountain’ moves to China

BEIJING — “Magic Mountain,” a 52-part semi-animated series produced by China Central Television (CCTV), Australian Broadcasting Corp. and Australian Southern Star Entertainment, was recently completed.

Li Dongsheng, vice director at China’s national network, said it was the first time in China for children’s programming to be produced with a foreign partner and investment from both sides, and marked a new era in Chinese animation.

The show was written by Australian playwright Claire Anderson.

Post-production was done in Australia.

The 10-minute episodes tell a fairy tale about a panda, lion, tortoise and dragon. The episodes are being broadcast as part of CCTV’s “Big Windmill,” a popular children’s program.
