Paul Bolger has two short live action films he wrote and directed in post production. One is called Power Struggle - a dystopian view of a near future Ireland - and the other is called Comb - a Banshee story story with a difference. Comb stars Jack Walsh of Killinaskully fame. Paul co-produced these shorts with Mark Kelly of Grey Man FIlms.
Paul is also working with Aardman on one of their new features and writing 2 more shorts to which he hopes to shoot in the coming months.
On top of all this Paul is writing, animating and directing a 2.5 minute short film for the The Flying Machine project from BreakThru FIlms. It is part of a larger celebratory feature on Chopin. and is set to a piece of the composer's music - it will be released later in 2010 as part of the 200 year centenary of Chopin and is commissioned, through BreakThru, by the Polish government.

Jason Tammemagi is in the midst of the second series of Fluffy Gardens (http://www.fluffygardens.com//), a preschool
show for children. Jason writes and directs it so it's keeping himself very busy. There are around ten left to produce and, as far as I know, the second series should be launching on RTE in April. Monster are producing 40 episodes for the second series (each episode is 7 minutes long) which brings the total number of episodes to 80, plus a Christmas special. It brings us to about 10 hours of Fluffy Gardens. The show airs in the UK and Ireland, all across Europe, in Australia, Latin America and elsewhere (as far as Thailand and Korea).
