Pakistan Jumps In

... to the CG feature biz.

Animation Scoop explains:

Pakistan's fist ever CG animated feature 3 Bahadur ("Three Brave") will be released in 2015. Directed by Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy, an acclaimed journalist and documentary filmmaker, winner of an Academy Award for her documentary, Saving Face in 2012 - as well as an Emmy for her documentary, Pakistan: Children of the Taliban in 2010. This is her first animated film. ...

The trailer emphasizes action, suspense, and dramatic angles. And clockworks reminiscent of The Great Mouse Detective.

It's amazing to me that a country getting ripped apart by sectarian strife is making animation, but then, parts of Pakistan are probably tranquil. It's just that the tranquility is difficult to discern from half a world away.
