Lucasfilm Animation Singapore

A division of Lucasfilm Ltd., Lucasfilm Animation Singapore is a fully integrated digital animation studio producing film, television and video game content for global audiences.

Company History and Studio Structure

Originally founded in 2004 as a means to tap into the diverse global talent pool, Lucasfilm Animation Singapore (LAS) officially opened its doors in October 2005. LAS works closely with its sister company – Bay Area-based Lucasfilm Animation – on , a computer-generated television series expanding the scope of the Star Wars Saga with new stories, cutting-edge animation and signature style. Debuting in North American theaters on August 15, the all-new Star Wars adventures continue in Fall 2008 with half-hour installments on Cartoon Network, followed by airings on TNT.

Boasting an infrastructure that promotes efficient integration and creative collaboration, the LAS production schedule also includes contributions to projects from other Lucasfilm companies. While the largest of LAS’ production groups focuses on Star Wars: The Clone Wars, in July 2006 LAS announced the creation of the Game Group and the Digital Artists Group (DAG).

The Game Group developed and announced CloneWars - Jedi Alliance on the Nintendo DS in 2008. The Wii version is developed by Khrome Studios from Australia.

The Digital Artists Group serves both as an extension of Industrial Light & Magic, contributing to ILM’s work on feature film visual effects, as well as to support LucasArts’ video game productions.

In November 2007, Lucasfilm Animation Singapore launched the Jedi Masters Program, a paid apprenticeship providing talented young artists with mentorship opportunities from industry professionals at ILM, LucasArts and Lucasfilm Animation. The Jedi Masters Program has classroom facilities within the Singapore studio and combines classroom instruction with mentored work in an actual production environment.

The LAS creative team is led by Gail Currey, VP and General Manager of Lucasfilm Animation, and Xavier Nicolas, Managing Director of Lucasfilm Animation Singapore. The studio currently employs nearly 300 people from 41 different countries.
