What they said:
"Singapore is going to have its own first full-length animated feature called "Sing to the Dawn". The movie is a collaboration between Raintree Pictures, the Media Development Authority and Silicon Illusions.
But while animated films from Disney and Pixar cost up to US$100 million to make, this home-grown creation is only going to cost S$2.5 million.
The film is based on Minfong Ho's award winning book "Sing to the Dawn".
A popular children's book, it has even been used as an O level text."
