Today Premier Dalton McGuinty will be making an announcement about high-tech jobs in the film business, and Elton will be by his side.
The premier is to announce a government investment in the industry at Toronto’s Starz Animation.
McGuinty and the composer will tour the studio prior to the announcement.
This is one of Canadas largest 3D animation studios. Starz Animation specialises in high-end computer-animated motion pictures, DVDs, TV series, commercials, shorts and visual effects.
The studio is currently in production on Miramax Films and Rocket Pictures theatrical animated movie, Gnomeo And Juliet.
Elton, who is to be speaking about the flick, is a producer, as is Steve Hamilton-Shaw, who is involved with the Sundance Channel‘s Spectacle series, hosted by Elvis Costello.
