The Manchester studio will build on Brown Bag Films’ track record by implementing a long form 2D animation pipeline using Toon Boom Harmony and Storyboard Pro software throughout and expanding their current output of animation production to the North West of the UK. Having decided to move to the city, Brown Bag Films very much appreciated the welcome and support given by both MIDAS and The Sharp Project. This is Brown Bag Films third studio, with the others located in Dublin and Los Angeles.
