Probably not everyone knows that there is a animated films studio in here. Work on producing a cartoon is a truly tedious and time-consuming act. The smallest change in motion requires a great number of drawings. To properly study the facial expressions of a character one has to have a face made of rubber. Each drawing is filmed separately. Several thousands of drawings, many months of work and patience will be handsomely rewarded with your single smile.
