Endgame’s ‘Sky’ high in distrib deal

First toon to combine 3-D, 2-D, live action, miniatures

Jim Stern’s financing and production company Endgame Entertainment has entered the distribution biz. It is teaming with production/distribution shingle Maxmedia to co-distrib animated pic “Sky Blue,” which premiered at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival.

Endgame is using its financing arm to underwrite pic’s P&A for its Dec. 31 Oscar-qualifying release in L.A. and its nationwide release, which will begin in New York in mid-February.

South Korean animated pic, directed by Moon Sang Kim, is the first toon to combine 3-D, 2-D, live action and miniatures.

Film was recently released in Korea under the title “Wonderful Days,” and has been dubbed and directed for an English-language audience by Sunmin Park.

Set in the postapocalyptic future, anime-style feature follows a young female soldier who must make the ultimate choice between love, duty and the hope of a better world.

” ‘Sky Blue’ is one of the most visually arresting films I have ever seen, and as such, this is the perfect first project for Endgame to distribute theatrically in North America,” said Stern.

“Blue” was produced by Sunmin Park, Jung Min Ethan Park, Kyeong Hag Lee and Kay Hwang.

Endgame’s recent productions include “Proof,” with Miramax Films; “Five Children and It,” with the Henson Co., the U.K.’s Capitol Films and the U.K. Film Council; “Compleat Female Stage Beauty,” with Tribeca Pictures and Lions Gate; and “Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle,” with Senator Intl. and New Line Cinema.
