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.
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 Divide, FutureShock, The Night the Banks Fell, Far Away Up Close and True Stories.
Several of our programmes are formats, and are available for international distribution (Anonymous, Class Clowns, Celebrity Coach and Ballet Chancers).
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.
