Virgin Comics and computer animation production house, Perspective Studios, have announced a partnership to create new intellectual properties. Their goal is to develop new characters and franchises for use in a number of different media formats, including comic books, mobile content, video games and feature films. Initially, these new properties will launch in the form of graphic novels and animated shorts before hopefully branching out into other forms. Perspective is mainly known for their animation work on the Ghost Recon and Grand Theft Auto series. Virgin Comics has worked with a number of well-known actors and directors, including, John Woo, Guy Ritchie, Terry Gilliam, Ed Burns and Nicholas Cage; and they recently optioned the popular comic book series Ramayan 3392 A.D. to Sony for the basis of an MMORPG.
“Perspective is bringing a great deal of experience and versatility to the table,” said Sharad Devarajan, Virgin Comics’ CEO. “With Perspective’s growing animation capabilities and particular expertise with video game animation, we have full confidence that they’ll go above and beyond when it comes to fully realizing a unique creative vision.”
