C.O.R.E. Digital Pictures was a film and television computer animation special effects studio, which branched out into fully animated television series and feature films. On March 15, 2010 the company announced it was suspending operations, and shut down.

CORE signed a production partnership deal with Radar Pictures.[1]


C.O.R.E. Digital Pictures was started in 1994 by John Mariella, Kyle Menzies, Bob Munroe and William Shatner.[1]

Its first and only animated feature film, The Wild, was distributed by Walt Disney Pictures.[1] It met with unfavourable critical and commercial reaction. With 400 temporary employees, The Wild had the largest production crew for a film made in Canada.

With a rising exchange rate as with most Canadian animation firms, C.O.R.E. was getting fewer jobs from America. So in March 2010, C.O.R.E. stopped operating and laid off their employees.[1]
