Irish animation is frequently in the news with companies such as Caboom, Telegael, Brown Bag Films, Cartoon Saloon, and Boulder Media all doing impressive work on the international stage. Damian Farrell, Creative Director of Caboom, tells us a little bit more about how it all works.
“The opportunities for people with top animation skills have never been better,” he says. “Areas like games have opened up and we see lots of people coming from games to animation and going from animation to games.”
“The biggest change in recent years is the growth in Irish animation and its recognition internationally. Irish animation is not about animation for Irish audiences, studios are producing more and more content for international broadcasters.”
