Kavaleer Animations, the award winning Irish animation production company who have just celebrated their 10 year anniversary have announced that in order to keep up with their international work load, they will create 30 new animation jobs over the course of 2012.
Kavaleer’s award winning animation is internationally respected, and has allowed them to work with notable names such as Sesame Street, Houghton Mifflin, Harcourt and Disney.
In addition to a co-production of 50 x 11 minute pre-school series, they intend extending their interactive games and e-learning production to €1 Million turnover by April 2012. Kavaleer also have big plans for the world of apps and digital games. Some of their notable work in the interactive field includes the artwork they produced for the game ‘Diner Dash’, a Playfirst property. Diner Dash is played world-wide and available as an app for iPhone, iPad and PC.
CEO and Founder Andrew Kavanagh talked about coming through 10 years of business:
‘It’s amazing to think that what started out in 1998 as a hobby has developed into something this big over the past decade. Ten years ago, we got our first commission and took a risk by starting a business in the midst of a recession. I’m so glad we did because now this gets to be my day job. We’re delighted to announce that we will be taking on additional staff in 2012 as we work on exciting international projects.’
