FilmSharks CEO Guido Rud said: “It’s an honor to see that top players pre buying and joining us in this masterpiece. We are thankful with all our partners including Disney and Epic Games, supporting 'Dalia and the Red Book' through the Epic MegaGrants program. Although animation has done an excellent job of entertaining through comedy and colorful creatures, there is also a huge appetite and opportunity to share unseen epic stories like this one, that allows us to tell larger-than-life cinema experiences.”
