Starz Animation Toronto, one of Canadas largest 3D animation studios, specialises in high-end computer-animated motion pictures, DVDs, TV series, commercials, shorts and visual effects.

In 2007, the studio opened its expansive new state-of-the-art 45,000 square-foot facility in downtown Toronto, where more than 200 of the top artists, producers, technical directors, and programmers in contemporary animation work together. The studio is currently in production on Miramax Films and Rocket Pictures theatrical animated movie, Gnomeo And Juliet.

On Tuesday, Elton is scheduled to be there to make an announcement, but a spokesperson would not divulge more details.

Last month, the singer and his partner were at the Academy of Television Arts & Science's Leonard H. Goldenson Theatre in Los Angeles for a Sundance Spectacle screening. The music/talk series on the Sundance Channel, hosted by Elvis Costello (and which has featured a couple of appearances by Elton) has been given the green light for another series.

Below is a photo of Elton with film critic Pete Hammond, who served as moderator at the April 23rd event.
