Vasoon Animation is a privately owned Chinese animation studio established in Beijing, 1992. Vasoon Animation was officially formed by Wang Chuan, Wu Hanqing, Kuang Yuqi, Zhang Jianwei and Wu Guanying in 1992, making Vasoon Animation China’s oldest private animation studio. The 180 employees of Vasoon Animation are involved with all aspects of animation, including editing, planning, design, production and direction. The animators of Vasoon enjoy the challenge of experimenting with wide range of animation styles, including modern realism, chinese modern painting style, and comic realism. The company produces and distributes a complete array of animated entertainment products including animated feature films, animated TV series, artistic short films, illustrated books and animated interactive applications. Organizations including China Film Group Corporation, Shanghai Media Group, CCTV and BTV have collaborated with Vasoon Animation during various television and film projects.
One of Vasoon Animation’s most notable features is “Kuiba”, also known as 魁拔. The film “Kuiba” tells the story of how a boy saves a fantasy world from an evil monster. The film borrows the Japanese “hot-blooded” style, refreshing the audience’s views on Chinese animation. “Kuiba” has been critically acclaimed, however it commercially fell below expectations. It was reported that Wu received minority help from a venture capital fund at Tsinghua University to complete “Kuiba.” “Kuiba” also holds the distinction of being the first big Chinese animation series to enter the Japanese market. “Kuiba” not only has 156 episodes for television but also five feature length films. China.org ranked “Kuiba” as one of the top ten Chinese movies made in 2011
In October 2012, Vasoon Animation signed a co-production deal with French animation studio Folimage Studio. The two sides will work together to determine the future of four co-produced animated features.
Vasoon Animation released “Kuiba 2″ on May 31, 2013. The film made over 18 Million Yuan the first week. The film was not only the first Chinese animated feature which was viewed in 3D, but also the first Chinese animted feature with Dolby Atmos. “Kuiba 2″ won the Magnolia Award at the 19th Shanghai Television Festival.
