Rough google translate of relevant question in article:
Shigeto Koyama Takafumi Hori and confessed to wanting to work in this environment through Evangelion. Will you attend Evangelion Final?
TH: When I was in high school, I actually want to be aware of facilitator watching Evangelion, including scenes of You Yoshinari.
SK: At that time Gainax was extraordinary stuff, Daicon Evangelion movies up. It was there that he had to go to work! Evangelion has opened new perceptive for animation.
S: For my part, I subscribe to college but hey I did not know what to do with my life. My older sister then gave me lots of business brochures and animator seemed interesting. I kinda worked my drawing and then I applied in this studio Gainax what.
Evangelion 3.0 like I have not been up to, what I'll do on the Evangelion 3.0 + 1.0 is up my level. I will do my best.
SK: The production has not yet begun, it is not known when it will begin.
My guess is that it's still in pre-production. Or maybe they took a break for the animator expo when pre-production finished to prepare mentally for the task ahead?
