What we do

Flying Bark Productions is proud to be an independent producer with a long history in creating iconic animated children’s entertainment, including web series, feature films and television series.  We operate as a full-service production facility with expertise in producing projects from first concept through to the red carpet première.   

We specialise in development and pre-production and have one of the most experienced creative development teams in Australia.  We produce original concepts and have significant experience adapting new and classic properties for the international market. Australia has a very robust production industry and the local government subsidies and attraction schemes create a vibrant and affordable place to do business. Flying Bark is well versed in producing official co-productions, service work and independent productions which draw on these incentives. 

Flying Bark is part of the well renowned, European-based media group Studio 100. The global group has extensive experience and major success with nurturing global brands from content creation (live action, live shows and animation), international distribution of television and film and extensive licensing and merchandising campaigns. The group owns 5 theme parks across Benelux and Germany and ownership in several European television channels.

Flying Bark has extensive experience working in international partnerships including multi-studio productions.  Whether we are leading the production or supporting it, we have developed creative and technical pipelines that accommodate these specific requirements. These partnerships can take the form of:

·         Official or Unofficial Co-productions

·         Service Work (both providing and receiving)

·         Joint Ventures

·         Licensing and Merchandising Opportunities

Flying Bark is part of the Studio 100 group. Some of our corporate collaborators include:

The Studio

Flying Bark has been creating iconic animated children’s entertainment since 1968. With the international release of two animated feature films in the next 12 months and several television series about to launch, the Flying Bark star is still well and truly rising.    

Our dynamic studio space is located in Sydney, Australia, nestled in between the hub of Newtown and Sydney University. We are a full-service animation space, equipped to produce various forms of animation. Our studio houses stereoscopic facilities, editing suites, art and design, story, animation, look development and experienced production departments. Flying Bark also has in-house marketing, licensing and merchandise business and is now working on 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.
