"The concept has a delicious mix of mischief-making, magic and mayhem," Donna Andrews, CEO & Executive Producer, Sticky Pictures, commented on the announcement. "Combined with Brown Bag's impressive track record in stunning design and production, Dream Factory will be a visual feast and wonderfully entertaining."
As Andrews intimates, layout and animation production for Dream Factory will be handled by the artists at Sticky Pictures (Sydney, NSW, Australia) and Brown Bag Films (Dublin, Ireland). It must also be noted, however, that the series concept comes from character artist, book illustrator, and all together do-everything designer Kyla May (Kyla May Productions), whose company holds offices on both ends of Australia, in Melbourne, Victoria, and Perth, Western Australia. May is a prolific designer, but has achieved considerable success with the recent debut of the 2D series Flea Bitten, which is about a colorful shelter dog and his daily adventures.
Sticky Pictures' efforts have been growing on international viewers for a while. Recent productions are along the lines of assorted 2D titles like the Dennis & Gnasher rebirth, Pearlie, and the wild and reckless rock anthem antics in Dukes of Broxtonia, surprising fans of multiple demographics.
