Canadian animation producer Mercury Filmworks is set to establish a European beachhead with a new production studio in Dublin, Ireland. The new Mercury Filmworks Europe will open this coming fall.
There’s no word on initial projects out of the Irish operation. However, the Ottawa-based company has also named former Teletoon executive Alan Gregg as president of European production.
The Mercury Filmworks Europe expansion aims to cast a wider net for Mercury to snag cartoon-making talent, and lengthen its reach into the European market.
Gregg was previously director of original content at Teletoon Canada, and he is originally from Ireland.
He will relocate to Dublin this summer to oversee all creative and business operations for Mercury Filmworks Europe.
