Animax Asia is currently producing LaMB, an original multiplatform, multimedia animation production for TV, online and mobile based on Filipino writer Carmelo Juinio‘s script which won a special prize at the Animax Awards script writing competition where he beat 3,000 other entries from across Asia to have his work made into an actual movie.
For LaMB, Animax Asia is collaborating with Canadian band Simple Plan and American band The Click Five for LaMB, with the former band providing single ‘I Can Wait Forever’ as the title track for LaMB, and the latter providing single ‘Summertime’ to also feature in the show.
Simple Plan will be drawn into the story and perform as an animated band, while album art for The Click Five will feature in the show.
In addition Animax and Peach Blossom Media will produce a fully animated music video for Simple Plan’s ‘I Can Wait Forever’, and a live action music video with LaMB action sequences for The Click Five’s ‘Summertime’ both to premiere on Animax across Asia and online from Dec 2008.
A press conference was held with Simple Plan in Singapore on 2 August to announce the news.
