Boulder Media has announced the appointment of Colm Tyrrell to the animation studio as Head of Studio Production on 6th June.

Established in 2000, Boulder Media is one of Ireland’s most prolific animation studios, producing My Little Pony, The Amazing World of Gumball, and Danger Mouse to name a few, garnering numerous awards and nominations both domestically and internationally for its work.

Acquired by Princess Pictures last year, Colm’s appointment to the newly created role is part of Boulder Media’s growth strategy which will see the company scaling and seeking talented artists to work on its new slate of prime-time, family and kids’ animated productions, including the forthcoming Grimsburg, an animated sitcom voiced by Jon Hamm, produced for the Fox Broadcasting Company.

“Having admired the work of Boulder Media for many years, I am delighted to join the team at such an exciting juncture as it adds a new specialty of prime-time adult comedy, including high end projects such as Grimsburg and Krapopolis for Fox,” said Colm Tyrrell, speaking on his new role. “Together with my new Boulder Media colleagues, I look forward to many exciting meetings at Annecy International Animation Film Festival next month, where the wider industry gathers each year for an inspiring week celebrating all things animation.”

With over 20 years’ experience in the TV and production industries, Colm Tyrrell has established himself as a leading expert in producing animated series. He was Series Producer of highly acclaimed shows such as Doc McStuffins, Vampirina, and Henry Hugglemonster for Disney, and in his most recent role as Director of Production at Brown Bag Films, Colm played a crucial role in overseeing the success of numerous hit shows, including Angela’s Christmas (Netflix), Karma’s World (Netflix), Otis the Tractor and Eva the Owlet (Apple TV+), and Lu & The Ballybunch (Warner).

Colm has earned multiple Emmy nods, a BAFTA nomination, and recognition from both the Producers Guild of America and the Irish Film and Television Academy as well as an Irish Animation Award win.

“We’re delighted to welcome Colm to the Boulder crew, and we look forward to further expanding our brand in the market, building on our impressive catalogue of shows with his support, guidance, and expertise,” said Jenni MacNeaney, General Manager of Boulder Media. “The future is exciting with some impressive shows already planned into our slate enabling Boulder to offer world-class opportunities to the Irish and European talent pool, adding to our already stellar team.”

Emma Fitzsimons, Managing Director of Princess Pictures added “This is a significant hire for Boulder Media and I’m excited to see what Colm brings to the team as the company positions itself for further growth opportunities internationally in the thriving animation industry. In Boulder, we have a studio that boasts not only first-class artists but also kindred spirits that share our sense of humour and passion for great stories. Along with Jenni, Colm and the team, we intend to introduce more Irish talent to the US and global buyers, with a renewed focus on kids’ animation, as well as prime-time adult comedy production.”
