Studio 100 Group’s Flying Bark Productions Opening New L.A. Studio


The Studio 100 Group company Flying Bark Productions is set to open a brand-new studio in Los Angeles and expand its Sydney-based premises in the year ahead.

When the Flying Bark studio in Los Angeles opens in early 2020, it will have Ian Graham serving as its chief creative director. In his new role, Graham will spearhead a development slate for original production by working with local and international talent. He will also help supervise pre-production teams for both original and client service work.

Barbara Stephen, CEO of Flying Bark Productions, said: “We are delighted to be working with Ian in his new role as chief creative director for our L.A. studio. We share Ian’s passion for producing quality animation and working with a diverse mix of creative talent and highly value his experience and commitment to the industry. Flying Bark continues to grow with full-service teams specializing in hand-drawn, traditional 2D animation and CGI production in Sydney, and the new L.A. studio will help cater to an increased demand for high-end animation services.”

In addition, Flying Bark’s Australian head office in Sydney is in the process of expanding with a relocation to new premises in Alexandria. The brand-new creator-driven space, which is due for completion by mid-2020, will cater to a 400-crew capacity.
