About Animo TV

Animo Television is a multi-award winning Irish independent television and video production company based in Dublin. Founded in 2003, our aim is to produce high-end corporate video productions  and quality entertainment programming for national and international audiences.

Along the way, we have produced critically acclaimed TV productions such as Ireland’s Fittest FamilyCelebrity BainisteoirClass ClownsAnonymous, and The Irish Road to Cheltenham.

We have also been involved in a number of serious documentary and factual television productions, including Connected (and more recently ReConnected), Ireland’s Great Wealth DivideFutureShockThe Night the Banks FellFar Away Up Close and True Stories.

Several of our programmes are formats, and are available for international distribution (AnonymousClass ClownsCelebrity Coach and Ballet Chancers).

We have also produced corporate videos for a number of high profile business clients including Allianz Worldwide CareGlanbiaEURORDIS and the European Patients Forum (EPF).

These corporate video productions were created through close cooperation and consultation with the client, and represent Animo’s ability in content creation for business.

Animo Television was acquired by Parallel Films in 2014, which added considerable expertise to an already well-established production team.

Parallel Films have most recently been involved in the international box-office success Brooklyn, starring Saoirse Ronan (which has picked up six BAFTA nominations and three Oscar nominations).

Other projects from Parallel Films include the Oscar nominated Albert Nobbs (starring Glenn Close), and Neil Jordan’s Byzantium, which starred Saoirse Ronan (again!) and Gemma Arterton.

2016 will be an exciting year for Parallel Films, as they are currently in the post-production stage of their Netflix Original Film Jadotville, starring Jamie Dornan. Also, the Aisling Walsh directed Maudie, starring Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke, is in its pre-production stage.

On the television production side of things, Parallel Films have produced the Sky One series Treasure Island, as well as Kingdom for ITV and The Clinic and Damo & Ivor for RTE.
