Shelldon could be the first Thai 3D movie
Thailand's Shellhut Entertainment has teamed up with Singapore-based Tiny Island Productions to co-produce a 3D CGI-animated feature based on Shelldon, which is about various forms of marine life under the waves of the Andaman Sea. It's planned for release in 2012.
As far as I know, it would be the first stereoscopic 3D Thai movie.
Created by the entertainment arm of a shell-craft company, Shelldon was first broadcast in Thailand in 2008. The first season of Shelldon ran for 26 episodes and last year was translated for release in other territories, including various broadcasters in Europe and on the NBC network in the US. It was co-produced by Tiny Island.
Set in Shell Land, the main character is a shell named Shelldon, a shy boy who lives with his parents and helps them run the Charming Clam guesthouse.
