Granny O’Grimm’s Sleeping Beauty, directed by Nicky Phelan and produced by Brown Bag Films, first came to the screen in 2008 and already has won a number of awards while traveling across vast lands of Ireland, America, and Australia. This wonderful 5 minute creation takes us inside of the little house where an old granny is telling a good night story to her grandchild. The story, however, does not come with a magical happy ending we would all hope for. Everything dressed in the stunning visuals is more than expected from an animation that found its way on the shortlist of 10 films for Oscar nominations in 2010. A definite little treat for just about everyone!
Granny O’Grimm, inspired by a character from a writer Kathleen O’Rourke’s stand-up comedy show, will certainly remain on the screen for a long time to come. Soon the short will have its own Irish theatrical release through Paramount Pictures and will receive its television debut on Ireland’s RTE.
Want even more? Well the good old granny will also have its own show, produced by Brown Bag Films, in 2D & 3D computer animation. The series will include 26 – eleven minute short animations each featuring our good old friend and her desperate attempts to be the perfect granny to her three grandchildren, before the fairytales unleash her demons.
