Biography

Paul Bolger is an award winning writer, director and animation artist/illustrator. He cut his animation teeth at Sullivan Bluth Studios in the late 80's on The Land Before Time and All Dogs Go to Heaven. He went onto work as a lead animator on Richard Williams classic Thief and the Cobbler and Ralph Bakshi's Cool World before returning to Ireland and opening one of Ireland's first animation studios, Dagda Film, in 1993. He has since worked on many films as a designer, story artist and writer/director - namely Werner Beinhart, Felidae, Pippi Longstocking, Help I'm A Fish, Carnivalé, Happily N'Ever After and most recently Pirates: Band of Misfits, Arthur Christmas and Shaun The Sheep The Movie. Paul is currently developing a slate of original projects through his company PillarStone Productions for screen and print. Top of the heap is Hound - an epic live action feature and graphic novel re-remainingimagining the life and times of ancient Ireland's most famous hero, Cú Chulainn. Paul is also co-producing the animated feature film Outfoxed! with Andrew Fitzpatrick of Monster Entertainment.
