THE STUDIO

Our dynamic studio space is located in Sydney, Australia, nestled in between the cultural hub of Newtown and the sprawling greens of Sydney University. We are a full-service space, equipped to produce both 2D and 3D animation as well as live action shoots. Our studio houses stereoscopic facilities, editing suites, art and design, story, animation, look development and experienced production departments. Flying Bark is also now working on short and long form service projects for international companies.     

But what really floats our boat? Turning ideas into stories is what we love and bringing those stories to life is our daily dose of magic. We believe that animation has a unique ability to free a child’s imagination and create magical moments, those moments become memories and those memories last a life time. We are in the business of creating those memories.

Cultivating a uniquely collaborative and inclusive atmosphere, our multidisciplinary crew is singularly driven by a love of story and adventure. When the going gets tough, the Barkers get creative! Our team is our greatest strength.
