The Wizards of Animation: Emerald City Productions Animation Studio, Dún Laoghaire c1985-1991

Emerald City Productions

In the mid-1980s, American company Emerald City Productions was set up from scratch in Dún Laoghaire, adjacent to the DART station. Canadian directors Al Guest and Jean Mathieson created a fully serviced animation facility, recruiting fifty people from all walks of life. In five years, ten 50-minute feature-length television films based on classic books were produced. This is the story of Emerald City Productions, bringing us back to the early days of animation activity in Ireland, right here in Dún Laoghaire.

Exhibition curated by Nicola Sedgwick and produced by dlr Libraries in March 2019.
