Paris, France - August 24, 2004 - There is a new company in the animation industry : GO-N Productions, backed by Japanese animation company GDH, was recently formed in Paris, France.

A partnership was formed on June 4, 2004 in Paris to establish GO-N Productions by three partners : Eric Garnet (previously Producer at Antefilms, France), Anne de Galard (formerly Head of development in the same company) who both have great experience in the French and European markets, and GDH K.K., a leading enterprise of Japanese animation, have decided to join forces to develop and produce French and European animation. Furthermore GO-N Productions and GDH will investigate Japanese / French collaboration to develop business opportunities for the two companies.

GO-N Productions is determined to make use of GDH's creative Japan-US network and take advantage of GDH's operations in the Japanese and Asian markets. GDH plans to closely collaborate with GO-N Productions to strengthen its entry in the EU, including searching for original stories and graphic design from France and the creation of French/Japanese animation.
