Wellington Company Create Soundtrack for Chinese 3D CGI Feature


POW! Post created sound track for 10,000 Years Later, the first major 3D CGI feature film produced in China. 10,000 Years Later is a futuristic drama about the appearance of an evil warlord, Wushen and the ensuing battle between the material and organic world.
