While Vietnam’s animated film industry is at its infancy, many Vietnamese people are working for European and American animated film companies. ...
Nobody knows that animated films like “Igor”, “Mickey's Twice Upon a Christmas” and “Fairy Tale Fights” have the contribution of Vietnamese painters because they are distributed under the name European or Hollywood producers.
There is a big group of Vietnamese-origin technicians working for cartoon studios in Hollywood. The audience can read Vietnamese names like Huy Nguyen, Quan Tran, John Truong and Dennis Duong in the introduction of the most famous animated films like “Madagascar”, “Ice Age” or “Brave.”
Stands to reason. When I got into the business of cartoons in Southern California, work was being sent to Japan, site of one of our former war adversaries. And also, too, Korea.
So sending work to Vietnam is a natural progression. Next thing you know, we'll be sending animation work to Iraq and Afghanistan.
