Danny Glover and his producers of 2010 has been working at the development stage for an upcoming animation film. A current work which has seen immeasurable beauty where animation and life join and again a whole new world of talented people from the art world join forces. A fantastic experience and the opportunity to work with the actor himself was a compliment to us all.
