GERI Halliwell is just the latest coup for Brown Bag Films.
Another Oscar nomination for 'Granny O'Grimm's Sleeping Beauty' followed in 2010 and it has had programmes broadcast on the likes of Nickelodeon and now the Disney Junior Channel.
Brown Bag is the leading player in the Irish animation business, but it is not the only successful one in a sector that flies under the radar here .
The Cartoon Saloon, set up by Paul Young, in 1999 got an Oscar nomination for 'The Secret Book of Kells' in 2009 and has had its work broadcast on the BBC and the Cartoon Network.
