Brown Bag Films

Irish ani­ma­tion house Brown Bag Films is set to begin pre-production on their first fea­ture length ani­mated film early next year. Night­glider will be co-produced by Brown Bag Films and Wind Dancer Films, and directed by Brown Bag Films’ cre­ative direc­tor Dar­ragh O’Connell.

Brown Bag will also be the lead ani­ma­tion stu­dio for the pro­duc­tion. Wind Dancer will par­tially finance the film, and secure addi­tional financ­ing for the project through advance inter­na­tional and domes­tic sales. Wind Dancer is best known for its live-action fea­ture projects, includ­ing the Mel Gib­son fea­ture What Women Want. Night­glider will mark its first ani­mated feature.

The film will be writ­ten by Jeremy Shipp, and pro­duced by Brown Bag Films’ Gre­gory R. Lit­tle with Wind Dancer’s Matt Williams, David McFadzean, Dete Meserve and Judd Payne. Lit­tle devel­oped the project and brought it to Brown Bag upon join­ing the company.

The ani­mated film will tell the story of a fly­ing squir­rel raised as a tree squir­rel who becomes con­vinced that he’s a super-hero when he dis­cov­ers that he can fly.

Brown Bag Films  was founded in 1994 by Cathal Gaffney and Dar­ragh O’Connell in Dublin, Ire­land. Brown Bag Films have a slate of orig­i­nal tele­vi­sion and fam­ily fea­ture prop­er­ties in active devel­op­ment and are also engaged in inter­na­tional co-productions and ser­vice work.
