Nominally established as a private company by impresario Louis Elliman and producer Emmet Dalton in 1958, the studios were in fact bankrolled by the state from their inception, as a means of drawing filmmaking activity to Ireland. From the outset the studios found it difficult to attract a steady throughput of work, and despite support mechanisms like the Irish Film Finance Corporation it was in financial difficulties throughout the 1960s. Sold into private ownership by the Industrial Credit Corporation (a state bank) in 1964, the studio went into receivership three times between 1958 and 1972.
Considering that Ireland is hardly noted internationally as an animation center, it is striking that for a period in the late 1980s, it was home to the largest animation company in the world outside Disney’s Hollywood operation. There were some animation antecedents before the arrival of industrial-scale operations. In 1964 Gunther Wolf came to Ireland and set up a studio producing animated TV commercials. He was followed in the early 1970s by Harry Hess, a former UPA animator who had worked on classics such as Mister Magoo, and by Jimmy Murakami, who arrived in Ireland in 1970 to work as art director on Roger Corman’s The Red Baron (1971).
Subsequent features include Help! I’m a Fish (2001) and Duck Ugly (2002).

The key difficulty for the Irish animation sector is the same facing its live-action counterpart: Since American animation dominates world screens, how can Irish animation find a unique voice, much less a globally successful one? It has been suggested that smaller companies like BrownBag Films, which made the highly successful (and Oscar-nominated) Give Up Yer Aul Sins (2002), have succeeded by making a virtue of the local specificity of their work coupled with the strategic use of new technology, affording them a competitive edge.
