28 Nov 2011 : By Ciara Drohan
The Amazing World of Gumball
Dublin based animation company Boulder Media has picked up an award at the Children’s BAFTAs, which took place last night, for writing and animation on its co-production ‘The Amazing World of Gumball’.

‘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 town of Elmore. Featuring a stellar cast of characters, Gumball’s school friends include a tyrannosaurus rex, a cheerleading peanut, and a banana. The series received its international debut in May and is the first full-length animated series to emerge from Cartoon Network Development Studio Europe.

Boulder Media were part of the team who won the Award, along with Ben Bocquelet, Mic Graves & Joanna Beresford of Cartoon Network Europe in association with Dandelion Studios & Studio Soi /Cartoon Network UK. Other nominations in this category included major names such as Nick Toon’s ‘Grizzly Tales’, CBBC’s ‘Muddle Earth’ and ‘Pet Squad’.

Boulder’s work, which has also produced shows like Cartoon Network US ‘Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends’, Nickelodeon’s ‘El Tigre’ and BBC’s ‘Funky Fables’, was also recognised by the Award for Writing. The writing team for ‘The Amazing World of Gumball’ were James Lamont & Jon Foster of Cartoon Network Europe, in association with Dandelion Studios, Boulder Media & Studio Soi/Cartoon Network UK.

Boulder’s Creative director, Robert Cullen, said, “We’re thrilled with this recognition of the fantastic work done by our team. We’ve thoroughly enjoyed the creative and artistic challenge working on this international production. As a Dublin-based company, we’re extremely proud of ‘The Amazing World of Gumball’ and to be working on a global stage, with more multi-national projects in the pipeline.

Also up for an award on the night were Brownbag and Silvergate's 'Octonauts' for CBeebies in the pre-school animation category but lost out to Nick Jnr's 'Peppa Pig'.
