Irish animation production is booming right now, but the growth of the industry was set into motion many years ago. That contemporary history is the subject of an upcoming documentary, Animation, Inc.: Ireland’s Creative Industry.
Cartoon Brew exclusively debuts the trailer for the film below:
First-time director Darren Williams told Cartoon Brew that the country’s animation history may surprise people. “I knew about the exciting history here, with Murakami/Wolf and the Sullivan Bluth studios, but found that a lot of people had no idea some of their favorite childhood animation, like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, All Dogs Go To Heaven and An American Tail where made in Ireland,” he said.
