Created by Simpals, an animation studio in Chişinău, Moldova, the 3D Gipsy series is to receive substantial funding from a Russian company, STV Film. The Russians are willing to invest 5 million Euros in the further development of the cartoon series, according to Ziarul de Gardă.

According to Simpals’ representative Vlad Ştirbu, the company is going to hire 100 people that will work on the cartoon series for the next five years. The Gipsy project started with a 10 minute comedy series, that has also attracted the attention of Pixar-Disney, in 2008.
