SINGAPORE, June 7, 2001: The Economic Development Board (EDB) has joined forces with an Indian multimedia company to make an animated film about Buddha. The US$5.5 million production entitled "Buddha," due to be finished next year, will be the first full-length animated film to be co-produced here. The 90-minute story about Prince Siddharta's journey towards enlightenment will combine the best of traditional cartoon drawing and high-tech computer animation. The film should be released internationally by the end of next year.
