Igloo News – September 2018

Hey! And hope you are all doing well and not getting too cold all of a sudden like we are here in Igloo after having a scorching lovely summer.

We have been mad busy in here and have a good few things to show you all. One of which is a clip from our new TV show in development titled Old Irish Tales, which will be a 10 X 11 minute animated series for the family and in Irish. Below is a clip from one of the stories The Whistle Player and the Puca. This is done using mixed media – so puppets, photo’s, 2d animation and live action all mixed together. This was funded by Screen Ireland.

Old Irish Tales displays Irish fantasy storytelling at its best and presented through animation. We will see, our history, our myths, our Irishness, Puca’s and Banshees! With wit, magic and pure unadulterated spookyness, we hope Old Irish Tales will be the next “must see” series. This show will be an Igloo Animations production joined by award winning writer Marina Carr.

We have also been developing a new children’s TV series for Prize Pig Productions titled Auntie Cupcake with voice talent Pauline Mclynn. See clip below – Go on, go on !!!


Our Short Film DEPOSITS, continues to be screened at festivals both in Ireland and abroad. It was recently screened at Still Voices, Culture Night 2018 and will also be screened at the Indie Cork Film Festival in early October.


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
