Igloo News – May 2018

Happy 2018 Summer everybody and hope you are all doing well.

We have been up to so many exciting things lately and 2018 has already been our best year to date. First up is FANTASY IRELAND, an Irish Adult Animated Comedy TV Series that we have just finished developing with the help of IFB funding and the Awesome people at the Irish Film Board. It’s by far the most fun we have had at Igloo in the last few years. I can’t show you everything, but I can show you the trailer which is below. Enjoy.

What’s it about ? FANTASY IRELAND is an outrageous post-watershed animated comedy series set in a fantastical version of contemporary Ireland (mixed with a dollop of Irish mythology). We follow three flatmates living in Rathmines who are flung together to form The Shamz – the new unwitting saviours of Ireland sent to save us from ourselves and more importantly a greedy priest hell-bent on setting us back fifty years!

Our Short Film DEPOSITS, continues to be screened at festivals both in Ireland and abroad. It was just awarded Special Mention at the Dublin Sci-Fi Film Festival and will be screened next at The Fastnet Film Festival in the fishing village of Schull on the south-west coast of Ireland at the end of May.

We have also just been awarded developing funding for another TV series OLD IRISH TALES from the IFB. It’s 13 X 7 minute animated series for the family. Each story will be adapted from their original tales, BUT, changed for the screen and tailored to suit modern day story formatting.



We are also currently in production of some Animated Explanation Videos for ESBI and ARC Cancer support. For more information on Animated Explanation Videos, please visit

The HSE Book that we have illustrated Tom’s Flower Power – A gentle explanation to how babies are made has just been launched. So if you have small children I am sure you will come across this book at some stage.

OK, that’s about it for the moment. Email or phone in for any of your animation needs and don’t forget to follow us on social media for more updates – links below.

Very Best,
Trevor Courtney
