CFX Artists (ON Animation Studio Montreal)


About Us

ON Animation Studio is taking a journey into the land of creativity and infinite possibilities…into the Playmobil Universe! Lino diSalvo (Frozen, Tangled) is directing our next exciting CG feature film adventure.

Since 2013, ON Animation Studio has produced, developed and created the pipeline and tools used on the films “The Little Prince” (winner of the 2016 César for Best Animated Film) and “Mune”, at Mikros Image Canada’s facilities in Montreal.
