Inspired by a character in Irish writer Kathleen O'Rourke's stand-up comedy show, Granny O'Grimm's Sleeping Beauty is a 5min short animated film directed by Nicky Phelan and produced by Dublin animation studio Brown Bag Films.

The short has been nominated for an Oscar in the 2010 Best Short Animation category, and has been screened around the international film festival circuit and collected a number of audience awards at film festivals in Ireland, America and Australia.

Due to the massive popularity of the short, it was recently announced that a 26 x 11 mini animated series is to be produced. Each episode features Granny O'Grimm's desperate attempts to be the perfect granny to her three grandchildren, before the fairytales unleash her demons. Produced by Brown Bag Films and directed by Nicky Phelan, the series will be created in 3D & 2D computer animation.
