yeah I actually thought it looked pretty cool in terms of style. Eyes look beaut. Awesome there are more jobs too. Huhu's themselves are tiny so I wonder if this will be for in China.

I'm pretty sure the NZ studio will be the one going through with production. The news featurette they did on TV3 talks primarily about the hiring boom that's going to happen once production begins, with Huhu needing to hire '100 animators'. They also go through their NZ campus discussing how they're going to accommodate such a large number of artists who will relocate there for production.

@Oatestwder, the hiring info on their website for the Beijing studios has been there for years. A friend of mind emailed them recently requesting info on when they'll begin taking applications and they replied with 2-3 months apparently.
