Taipei, March 23 (CNA) Rhythm & Hues Studios Taiwan Co., a subsidiary of the California-based Rhythm & Hues Studios Inc. (R&H), will move into a new facility in southern Taiwan next week, a local executive said Saturday. "Everything is working fine on track," Mike Yang, manager of Rhythm & Hues Studios Taiwan Co., told CNA. Seven artists that have finished training in India
will start to work at the new Kaohsiung studio next week, along with 10 other administration staff, Yang said. The new facility will offer space to over 200 local and foreign artists and instructors over the next five years, according to the company. R&H has a globally distributed production infrastructure with studios in Mumbai and Hyderabad, India
, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
and Vancouver, Canada. Oscar-winning director Ang Lee of Taiwan helped realize the investment in Taiwan by R&H, which won this year's Best Visual Effects Oscar for the 3-D movie "Life of Pi." R&H studios are currently working on the post-production for three Hollywood movies, with Taiwan's team on "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters," which is due to hit the big screen in August, Yang said.
