The Legend Of Tembo
Digital Domain recently opened its CG animation studio in Port St. Lucie, Florida. They announced that this studio, which they’ve officially dubbed Tradition, will work on 'The Legend of Tembo'.
Pam Coats, who is heading up creative development at Tradition, says Tembo is the story of a baby African elephant who is captured and shipped to India:
“When he gets to India that’s where sort of the journey takes place, and this is a guy who becomes someone else. So, he has to transform himself into a fierce, battle elephant, which is based in truth. They did use elephants in battle in India. He has to become something he is not in order to return home.”
