The Strait Times newspaper and the FilmBiz.Asia site report that the animation studios Storm Lion and Egg Story Creative Production shut down in Singapore at the end of last year. Storm Lion once planned a joint production with the anime studio Production I.G before they cancelled the project.
In November 2009, Production I.G announced that it would work with Storm Lion on a co-production titled Titan Rain. The companies tentatively scheduled the feature film project for a 2012 release, but they dropped the plans by August of last year, with Storm Lion assuming all the costs. At that time, Production I.G parent IG Port announced another project with an unnamed Singapore studio.
Egg Story Creative Production also shut down in the middle of production for Kung Fu Gecko, a planned computer-graphics film which turned into a television project. The Egg Story Digital Arts School, a related but separately funded and managed establishment, will continue to operate.
