Irish Animation Company Boulder Media Scoops Top Award at Emmys

Irish animation company Boulder Media’s animation series The Amazing World of Gumball recently picked up the Kids Animation Award at the inaugural International Emmy® Kids Awards on February 8th in NY. The Dublin company set up in 2000, was co-producer on the series, which debuted in May 2011, and was the first full-length animated series to emerge from Cartoon Network Development Studio Europe.

Boulder Media’s Creative Director, Emmy-nominated Robert Cullen, who founded the company in 2000, said, “We're over the moon with the Emmy and are very proud to be part of such a great show. We're very lucky to have such a talented and hard working crew at Boulder so it's wonderful to see their work being recognised with such a prestigious award. This means so much for the industry here. For such a small country Irish animation has achieved so much internationally which is something for everyone to be proud of”.

The Amazing World of Gumball combines 2D and 3D animation in a live-action setting, and follows the misadventures of 12-year old Gumball and his family in the weird and wonderful little town of Elmore. Featuring a stellar cast of characters, umball’s school friends include a tyrannosaurus rex, a cheerleading peanut, and a banana.
