Kavaleer to create 30 new jobs in 2012

Press Release from Kavaleer

Dublin-based Kavaleer Animations recently announced that it will create 30 new animation jobs in 2012 to keep up with its international projects. The shop, which celebrates its 10th anniversary last week, is working on a 50 x 11 minute pre-school series, said it will also extend its interactive games and e-learning production to €1 million turnover by April 2012. (Recent app clients include Playfirst’s Diner Dash.)

“It’s amazing to think that what started out in 1998 as a hobby has developed into something this big over the past decade,” says CEO and founder Andrew Kavangh. “Ten years ago, we got our first commission and took a risk by starting a business in the midst of a recession. I’m so glad we did because now this gets to be my day job. We’re delighted to announce that we will be taking on additional staff in 2012 as we take on exciting international projects.”

BROWN BAG FILMS & STICKY PICTURES MAKING DREAMS WITH DREAM FACTORY

 

Press Release via the Brown Bag Bloghttp://www.brownblogfilms.com/news/brown-bag-films-develop-dream-factory/

Sticky Pictures, Kyla May Productions and Brown Bag Films have today announced they will co-develop and co-produce the animated tween comedy series Dream Factory (52 x 12’).

Dream Factory is a comedy series that follows the adventures of apprentice-dream maker Tommy Winks in the Dream Factory, a magical dream-making studio in the clouds. As an apprentice to the mythical Sandman, Tommy is learning to master the art of dream making.  It’s not just about extraordinary ingredients and getting the recipe right; every night Tommy has to put on a showstopper that puts his audience to sleep- and keeps the Bogeyman at bay.

Dream Factory is designed and created by prolific creative director, brand creator and designer Kyla May (Smirk, Flea-Bitten, Kyla May Missbehaves, SheZow). It will be produced by Australia’s Sticky Pictures (Me & My Monsters, Pearlie, Dennis & Gnasher) and award-winning Irish animation studio Brown Bag Films (The Octonauts, Olivia, Noddy in Toyland).

Donna Andrews, CEO & Executive Producer, Sticky Pictures said: “Sticky is thrilled to be working with Brown Bag Films on Dream Factory. The concept has a delicious mix of mischief-making, magic and mayhem.  Combined with Brown Bag’s impressive track record in stunning design and production, Dream Factory will be a visual feast and wonderfully entertaining.”

Jennie Stacey, Development Executive, Brown Bag Films added: “We were instantly drawn to the fantastical comedy setting of Dream Factory and are very excited about working with Sticky Pictures to bring these great characters and magical stories to life onscreen.”

The Dream Factory has been developed with the assistance of the Australian Children’s Television Foundation.
