10th Ave Productions wins first prize in Entrepreneurship
Last night at Hôtel des Gouverneur in Ste-Foy, Minister of Employment, Agnès Maltais, presented Nancy Savard, producer of 10th Ave Productions, with first prize for the regional Québec entrepreneurship contest. After winning the local competition, 10th Ave Productions won first prize at the regional level in the operations/transformation/production category, which ensures her of a spot in the competition’s provincial finals.
Ms. Savard is happy for the recognition she received from the business milieu, and would also like to highlight the indispensable contribution of some of her collaborators. “Without my team – Natalie, Julie and Annie – who share my passion day after day, without my mentor René Chénier, who shares his knowledge so generously, we would not have such wonderful creative energy. Thanks to supporters such as Dominique Lavoie from CLD de l’Ouest, Michel Côté, MP of Peltrie, and our daring partners – Télé-Québec, CFCF-12, Telefilm Canada, Sodec and the Shaw Fund – we were able to make our first 3D cartoon for television, produced entirely in Québec City. With our will to combine the experience of Québec City film and television professionals with that of the region’s multimedia creators, we hope to make Québec City a hub of animated productions. Such talent deserves to be seen everywhere in the world.” The first project, entitled The Legend of the Christmas Tree, will be distributed around the world by the renowned French company, TF1 International.
10th Ave Productions is a television and film company specializing in 3D animation and digital documentaries. Its first creation, which is currently in production, will be broadcast in 2002 on Christmas day.
