Singapore’s August Media Opens Animation Studio in Philippines

Singapore’s August Media and The Philippines’ Synergy Media have opened a new animation studio in Manila.

The ASI Studios facility is a joint venture between the two companies and represents a rebranding, reconfiguration and a new team at the erstwhile Synergy88 animation studio. August will have management control.

The facility will have a production team of some 145 staff, configured as Flash and Toon Boom pipelines. Some 50 staff will be working on games development.

August and Synergy88 previously worked together on season 2 of “George of the Jungle,” which is soon to launch on Teletoon and Nickelodeon.

“2D is still the mainstay for good animated comedy. While many Asian service studios seem to be chasing the CG train, there is still a lot of demand for good 2D studios,” said Jyotirmoy Saha, founder and CEO of August Media, in a statement. “When it comes to 2D animation, the talent pool in the Philippines has fantastic variety and size. This facility is just the first step towards what we think will end up to be a group of 3 such teams.”
