Animation Studio Pilot on the Verge of Closing

The well-known Moscow animation studio Pilot is on the verge of closing, one of the studio directors Sergey Merinov reports.
      "Now Goskino (the State Cinematography Committee) cannot provide financing not only to us, but also to many other studios, which have already stopped working. For some time we have held out thanks to our own resources, but they are also coming to an end. Victorious killing of Russian animation goes on a full scale. Projects and studios are closed one after another", - Sergey Merinov said.
      He has recently written in his blog that the Pilot studio has money left only for another week of work.
      The film director mentions that in a week all the films, which are now underway, will have to be conserved and the studio employees will be compelled to leave without pay until the renewal of state financing or appearance of some commercial projects.
      The animation studio Pilot founded in 1988 became the first private studio in Russia: Its founder and the art director was Aleksandr Tatarskiy who passed away in 2007.
      In the recent years the studio has released two large-scale projects: Mountain of Gems and Multi-Russia.
