European animation - Territory Overview: Spain - 'Animation is in hot demand'
The 2001 animated feature The Living Forest marked a before and after in Spanish animation. Europe's first 3D computer animation, it was seen by more than a million viewers across the continent. Its success helped producer Dygra Films finance its $8m (EUR6.1m) Midsummer Dream, and grow its company with an eye to opening associated studios abroad. Dygra is in production on the 3D follow-up, The Spirit Of The Forest, for a 2007 release.
