Our Story
Flying Bark Productions is a prolific independent producer of international family-focused animation entertainment for over 50 years.

With studio locations in Sydney, LA and Madrid, and partner studios all around the world, Flying Bark operates as a full-service production facility with award-winning original independent feature films and series as well as providing world-class animation services for global clients. Exceeding 500 employees across our Sydney, Los Angeles and Madrid studios, Flying Bark Productions is one of the largest studios in Australia, with plans for further expansion.

The company has invested significantly in the development of its award winning original slate with creators from across the globe, and has adopted a no-borders approach to its business. Our Creative Directors in the United States, Australia and Europe continue to search for talented storytellers with diverse voices to further develop the creator-driven ethos of the studio, and the company has built a robust permanent senior staff for both 2D and CG animation services.

Our Services
Australia has a robust production industry and our local government subsidies and attraction schemes create a vibrant and affordable place to do business.

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 lifetime. We are in the business of creating those memories. Flying Bark is well versed in producing official co-productions, service work, and independent productions which draw on these incentives. 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. We cater to all budgets and will take your idea from concept right through to delivery. 

These partnerships can take the form of official or unofficial co-productions for IP; design, story and branded content services; animation and Production Services; 2D, CG character animation, motion graphics, apps; and/or licensing and brand initiatives (brand guidelines, product and promotion).

Our Studios
We have three dynamic studio spaces located in Sydney, Los Angeles and Madrid.

Our studios are located in thriving creative hubs surrounded by cafes, restaurants, and activities – all of which are frequented by our Barkers! Our studios are full-service spaces, equipped to produce both 2D and 3D animation as well as live action shoots.

Our studios house stereoscopic facilities including a state of the art theatre, editing suites, art and design, story, animation, look development and experienced production departments – but most importantly, you won’t go more than 5 minutes in our studio without being greeted by one of our resident office dogs.

Whether it’s yoga at 7am or celebration drinks at 7pm, our Barkers can’t get enough of each other! In the walls of our studio you will find your newest dog sitter, karaoke duet partner, coffee buddy or chess rival.

The Barkers have big hearts too!  “Paws For a Cause”  is our fundraising arm which is made up of many volunteers. We support Beyond Blue, RSPCA, Wayside Chapel, Black Dog Institute, Amnesty International, International Women’s Development Agency and the Cancer Council.

After Bark
After Bark is our production arm focused on content for older audiences, including both scripted and unscripted live action, as well as mature animation projects.

After Bark was established to attract creator-driven projects with a diverse representation of showrunners and an emphasis on locally focussed, global reaching stories. After Bark’s vision is to uncover projects from creators with a clear creative vision for adult audiences at the younger end of the spectrum.
