In the US, they partner with Disney, Jim Henson, and Nickelodeon and organize intricate financing deals, share territory rights and use tax credits to get their creations made. In a rapidly changing industry, they react and create content for iPhone and Android apps as much as turning out 10-minute cartoons.

Join us and find out why animation is being hailed a "star performer" of Irish industry.
