F.Rhythm 3D Animation Company is an animation studio that mainly invest and produces 3D animation. It was founded in 2004 by Tzu-Jien, Leng and Chia-Chi, Kao, a couple who are both directors having devoted themselves to the field of animation for over ten years.
With the dreams of adventure, challenge, enthusiasm for telling stories, a team of master animators with rich experiences and amazing skills was formed to provide the most specialized services and the best professional animation productions to those who love animation.
F.Rhythm’s main businesses include the development, creation, production, marketing, and distribution of animations. In 2009 and 2010, F.Rhythm were honored to be called the “Taiwanese Pixar” as it has been a fine example of starting an animation company in Taiwan by some of the magazines.
The very first original animated short film by F.Rhythm is the “Memory Loss”. This film won the animated film subsidy from the Government Information Office in 2005 which was worth of ten million dollars. In 2008, this film won the best animated film in Kuala Lumpur International Film Festival. “Memory Loss”, which had taken over 5 years and one hundred million NT dollars to rewrite and redesign the story, is the first completely original 3D animated film developed by Taiwanese. With the release of the “Memory Loss”, F.Rhythm’s goal of being the leading company in the digital content industry in Taiwan to enter into the global market has been carried out step by step. F.Rhythm is seeking more partners to bring more good animationsto the world.
The Story Behind the Brand
F.Rhythm believes that producing an animated film is like freely performing beautiful music with nice rhythm, for it is necessary to express the performer’s inspiration and show his techniques while being able to touch audience’ hearts and win a big round of applause from the market. Therefore, we decided to name our company F.Rhythm. And the image used for our CIS is a shadow of a person with a worker cap, dancing, and at the same time, striding. The worker cap is a symbol of our passion for work and courage to adventure, while his dancing and steps represent our insist on hard working in the field of animation and our creative imagination without boundaries. Our management philosophy is consistent with our CIS, facing the market with actual strength and passion and touching people with innovation and stories.
Not long after the foundation, F.Rhythm had stood out in two successive Digital Content Prototype Design Awards held by the government. And the “Cosmos Wander” defeated tens of competitive works and was selected as one of the five animated films which would be subsidized by the government. Another animated film being nominated was “Trubble Bub!” designed for pre-school children. This work under cross-sea cooperation was produced by the F.Rhythm team of superb skills along with the Canadian music producer of the “Sesame Street”. This film was favored by a senior Hollywood director and his team and was nominated for the International Animation Prototype Awards 2004. The expectation of this work is to integrate the specialties of the teams from Taiwan, the US, and Canada, to create a great animated film created in Taiwan and promoted around the world. The very first original animated short film by F.Rhythm is the “Memory Loss”. This film won the animated film subsidy from the Government Information Office in 2005 which was worth of ten million dollars. In 2008, this film won the best animated film in Kuala Lumpur International Film Festival. “Memory Loss”, which had taken over 5 years and one hundred million NT dollars to rewrite and redesign the story, is the first completely original 3D animated film developed by Taiwanese. With the release of the “Memory Loss”, we expect that “developing digital content” will be no longer just a slogan. We want to “be ourselves bravely and work hard to become the best of the best”. After 2010, audience in Taiwan will be able to see 3D animated films by Taiwanese. And it is hoped that F.Rhythm will bring the creativity and vitality of the Taiwanese people to every corner on earth through promoting 3D animated films, and making sure the world knows that Taiwan is not only good at manufacturing but also innovation and design by making sounds and showing splendor to the world.
