In 2017, Base Animation was set up. It took us three years of planning and recruiting the right creatives, technical, and management talents within Asia. The goal was nothing less than to build a facility to produce world-class animation for our clients and continue to captivate the audience. As a result, our first IP animation, Wish Dragon was developed together and was released in theatres as well as on Netflix in 2021.
