The president of the Gran Canaria Island Council (Cabildo), Antonio Morales, and the president of the French Animation Studio Amuse, Arthur Lener, announced today the opening of a new animation studio named Birdland in Gran Canaria. Birdland expects to generate 50 new jobs in the next months, since it will be the main center of production of Amuse.
Birdland will execute the whole production chain from Gran Canaria and because of that it is searching designers, scriptwriters, artists of sound, translators, voice actors and other professionals. Lener hopes to start soon a new course for having the possibility to have the talent of Gran Canaria working in the new studio and making a good team of Gran Canaria workers.
Since its creation, Amuse has become a leader in producing and distributing kids’ content for the digital space and has contents in almost one hundred digital channels that count with more than 400 million visits in a month.
Going one step further, Amuse now decides to settle in Gran Canaria because “Gran Canaria is the best place in Europe” for setting up due to its tax and investment advantages and because it offers a privileged environment for business and a great climate.
