Arranged by order of appearance, here are the latest additions to the Les' Copaque Team.
Ida in the Concept and Storyboard Team
Ehsan in the Script Writing Team
Wan Kari in the Background Modeling Team
The first wave came with additions to our Creative and Background Modeling team. Ehsan is in the writing team, helping me out with the writing especially for the future projects. Ida joins the concept and storyboarding team, where our storyboarding is in need of much help. She'll also be doing Conceptual designs for scenes and characters in future scenes. We can't divulge much information other than promising it to be very different from what you've seen so far. Lastly Kari joins our Background Modeling team (uhuk the only guy other than Yuki and Ahwei) where he's constructing props and set desings in 3D.
Next, (entered the same day as the first wave of applicants) are the Interns straight from MMU.
Hakim aka Hakim
Hafiz aka Obotcha
Khairy aka Panjang
The three interns are among the select few to join as we have very limited number of seats (and computers) available. Hakim and Hafiz are straight into the animation team, learning from the experienced animators. Khairy on the other hand will only be joining the animation team later as he is needed to help out with Character Modeling and Conceptual Designs. The interns help out in the concepts as they are a stylus-swingin-photoshoppin-masterful-artists bunch. Tak percaya cuba check deviant art diorang.
The latest wave of animators are graduates from MMU and just started their day today.
These guys are the latest and are straight in the animation team. New they may be, but the team at Les' Copaque will be training them quick to become good animators. I'm unable to say much about them for now cos I've yet to get to know them better.
So there you have it. Latest additions, brining our animation production workforce close to 30. Now all is left, is to finish our film. GOGOGOGO TEAM! (gogogo Anas siapkan Script)

Former oil man turns to animation
by Lee Wei Lian
Kuala Lumpur: Malaysian animation company Les' Copaque Production Sdn. Bhd. will form a joint-venture company with ZhongNan Group of Companies in China to produce animated movies for the international market.
The announcement was made last Thursday at the conclusion of the ZhongNan delegation's visit to Malaysia. The first animated project, 36 Stratagems-The Essential Art of Wars is estimated to cost US$6million(RM20.79million).
ZhongNan is a private group that ranks as one of the top 500 largest companies in China with annual revenue of about five billion yuan (RM2.23billion). The group is diversified with construction as its core business.
The group is also one of the biggest animation producers in China and produces more than 15,000 minutes of animation annually which it exports to more than 50 countries. Its best known for its Magic Eye animated series which is aired over RTM.
ZhongNan president Wu Jianrong said he wanted to work with Les' Copaque due to its creative team and strong management.
"Although they are small. their techniques and quality are very good" he told The Edge Finacial Daily. He also said he felt comfortable working with Les' Copaque managing director Burhanuddin Md. Radzi.
"His business manners are very good." Wu said. The two companies first met during the MIPTV audio-visual content trade show in Cannes last month. "Animation is a blend of art, commerce and technology. It is going to be a huge industry. Once you make a hit, it will become an international brand." He belives the 36 Stratagems movie will become an international hit.
Les' Copaque, which was established one-and-a-half years ago, is based in Shah Alam. It will release Malaysia's first feature length 3D animated movie next year, titled Geng, which cost about RM4 million. The company has 20 animators.
Burhanuddin who is majority shareholder of Les' Copaque, said he is happy that ZhongNan and Les' Copaque had agreed to set-up the joint venture company. "We are going to make something special," he said.
Burhanuddin was formerly a managing director and major shareholder of Dayang group, which is involved in the oil and gas industry. He is selling his entire interest in Dayang group to Sarawak-based Naim Cendera Holdings Bhd.
Last month Naim announced it was acquiring a 45% stake in the Dayang Enterprise Sdn. Bhd, DESB Marine Dervices Sdn. Bhd and Fortune Triumph Sdn. Bhd(FTSB), for a total of RM 87.75 million cash. Burhanuddin has a 20% stake each in DESB and DESB Marine, and a 16% stake in FTSB.

The people in Les' Copaque 02 named their place as the "fun side". This is because they have more people, more food, and no boss over there. Too bad, they don't have internet connection yet, (evil laughter...)
Enough talking, photo time guys!
Haha, introducing the new scripwriter!! Selangor!! Errr, tak tak, nama dia Ehsan. Anas tengah bertungkus-lumus buat script, tapi tengok muka si Ehsan, tengah chatting la tuu
Faiz tgh buat sesuatu yang top secret, sebab tu kena censor! Khairy, tgh search sesuatu kat pc, kenapa dia tak kerja ya?
Fuad, storyboard artist, tengah bengang buat storyboard. Baik jangan kacau dia.
Yaa... I know. Dah boring tengok gambak Mumu right? Tapi dia minta, apa nak buat? Dia lah Head of Les' Copaque 02 right now.
Ini la benda best kat office baru. They all compile the sketches and paste all over the wall. In Les' Copaque 01, we only have some Mickey Mouse and Incredibles posters on wall.
I guess that's all from me this time. Sorry for the rojak language. I'm just an animator, what do you all expect? Till next time guys!!~
Mr. Wu addressing their delegate... why we work with this small company???
