Animation company to create 30 new jobs in Ireland
An award-winning Irish animation production company is to create 30 new jobs.
Kavaleer Animations said they needed to create the new positions "to keep up with their international workload".
The jobs will be added throughout 2012.
Kavaleer has worked with Sesame Street, Houghton Mifflin, Harcourt and Disney.
CEO and Founder Andrew Kavanagh said: "It’s amazing to think that what started out in 1998 as a hobby has developed into something this big over the past decade."
Kavaleer is twice nominated for an Irish Film and Television Award, a British Animation Award and has won four Digital Media Awards. Their film work has been selected by over 100 international festivals over the past 10 years.
Kavaleer co-produced (with Belfast’s Straandlooper Productions) a preschool series called 'Lifeboat Luke' which was set in and around the small fictional seaside community of Donaghadoo.
This was followed by their own pre-school series aired on RTÉ Junior 'Garth and Bev', a cartoon about time-travelling siblings who lived long ago in harmony with nature.
The series has been sold to a number of territories including the UK (CBeebies), China, Portugal, America and Australia.
