“We’ve been developing projects in both children’s animation and feature film production for a few years now. The establishment of Film Graphics Entertainment, with Mark and Tim in the key producing roles, will see us bring a number of these projects to fruition in the very near future,” Film Graphics founder David Denneen said.

‘Natural progression’

“With our pool of directing talent and production expertise, moving into feature and television production is a natural progression,” he added.
