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 sergey_merinov.livejournal.com that the Pilot studio has money left only for another week of work.
