New Sony Animation Project ...

... with an animation vet soon to be attached.

Kelly Asbury is in negotiations to direct Kazom & The Unicorn for Sony Pictures Animation. Asbury co-wrote and directed 2011 Gnomeo and Juliet for Disney and co-directed Shrek 2 in 2004. ...

Kelly has been in the animation business a long time. That he was able to take an orphaned project like G and J speaks well of his many talents and ability to get the job done. We wish him the best on his prospective SPA project..

Meantime, animation has pretty much wrapped on Sony Picture Animation's Hotel Transylvania in Culver City, though we're told that back-end departments continue on in Vancouver, B.C., where Sony has shifted a lot of work due to hefty tax rebates.

HT hits screens later this year.

I enjoyed working with Kelly on Spirit, Stallion of the Cimarron and wish him all the best at Sony.

Did the Animation Guild outsource it's (short lived?) new logo to a Rhode Island studio due to a hefty tax rebate? Why was the entire post and comments devoted to it removed? What are you trying to hide from your membership?
