European Animation Industry report

A costly new market report on the UK and continental European animation industries, European Animation Industry: Strategies Trends & Opportunities 2012. Interesting to note a tension in German animation between “Germany’s lack of one main production center [being seen as] something of a problem” and the many “[Germany] production companies active in the animation sector who do not have their own physical studio”. So possibly the lack of a main production center is actually productive, since it removes office costs in expensive capital cities and pushes creatives toward innovative virtual office-less working structures?
