Kilkenny-based Cartoon Saloon is a three time Academy Award®, Golden Globe®, BAFTA and Emmy nominated animation studio. The animation studio wanted to create competitive advantage on a global stage while retaining their talent locally.

By collaborating with Cultural and Creatives Industries Skillnet (previously Animation Skillnet), they invested in the development of their people. Cultural and Creatives Industries was formed in 2023 to support the growth of Ireland’s animation, visual effects, games, film, TV, documentary, post-production, immersive technologies, AR/VR, virtual production, digital media, entertainment events, music, theatre, and visual arts sectors.

Cartoon Saloon found that people love being invested in and when an organisation supports their future career progression. Additionally, Cultural and Creatives Industries Skillnet provided insights into the various technical, managerial and creative skills needed for Cartoon Saloon's competitive advantage on a global scale.
