Igloo would also like to thank Emma, Mags and Jill at Screen Ireland, Michael Algar and Adrienne Michel-Long as this short wouldn’t have happened without them.

About the Short: DEPOSITS “concerns the connection of all the “disappeared”, who are the remains of those murdered by the Provisional Irish Army and those killed centuries earlier by British Redcoats. In common they are buried without trace, but are connected by hopes for discovery.
So without further ado – here is the full film for your viewing. Hope you enjoy 🙂

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.

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.

Happy 2018 Everyone and hope you are all doing well.

OK, before I go through the Igloo news, first things first: We have made an animated video that explains how you can do your bit to stop plastics destroying our oceans. Some of you like myself, may have seen the Blue Planet 2 episode that opened our eyes about the drastic effects that plastics have on our oceans – which is SHOCKING to say the least.
