Asia Bridge, a Taipei, Beijing and LA based sales and production team has taken on sales to China-Germany co-produced animated film Little Big Panda.

Produced by Beijing-based Yishang Media and German Asset Films, the 3D animation film was written and directed by veteran Greg Manwaring, who was an animator on 2011 Oscar nominee The Illusionist.

The film grossed more than $6.06m (RMB40m) when released in China during the Chinese New Year holidays.

Asia Bridge is a new consortium led by founders Steve Chicorel (Taipei), James MacLean (Los Angeles) and Christopher Dehau Lee (Beijing).

Chicorel continues his position as a distribution executive for Taiwan’s Double Edge Entertainment, which is currently selling concert film 3DNA, a live-action 3D concert movie, featuring Taiwanese rock band Mayday.
