Disney -Israeli Deal

The Mouse helps make cartoons in the Middle East.

Disney has inked a major deal with Israel’s Snowball Studios to produce a new animated television series in Jerusalem, in one of several new long-term animation deals announced this week by the Jerusalem Film Fund.

The deal culminates months of work by the fund and the city of Jerusalem, which has been courting animators as part of a larger drive to bring international film and TV production to the heart of Israel’s capital. ...

The Jerusalem Film Fund will be offering Snowball (and other studios in similar deals) a 25% rebate on their costs in exchange for working in Jerusalem.

It's good to see that Israel is ALSO into the "free money" game. Because there's nothing we like better than to see various governments give money to needy international conglomerates. Does our hearts good.
