Six animation projects are among the productions just approved to share in funding from the Irish Film Board.

Among the studios to benefit is Brown Bag Films, which is up for a children’s BAFTA this weekend for its cartoon series Octonauts. It’s won development support for The Wooden Sword.

Boulder Media has been given money for the animated feature film Astrid Silverlock & the Staff of Virtue, scheduled for release next year.

Another animated feature film to gain support is Igloo FilmsThe Boy in the Bubble. Narrated by actor Alan Rickman, it features a 10-year-old boy who falls in love for the first time.

The money will aid another year of sustained activity for the Irish animation, film and TV industry, said Irish Film Board CEO James Hickey. The announcements demonstrate the strength of the Irish film and TV industry despite the recession, he added.
