Dogs of Annwn are an independent film production company based in south Wales. It was founded in 2009, and has a registered address in Llantwit Major, near Cardiff.
So what is a film production company doing with a section on Busy Bee Bingo? Well, this company has links which go far wider than just the movie industry. Its management team is also responsible for the operation of several other companies which play an interesting role in the online gaming industry.
Bingo Head and Tidy Gaming are two such organisations. Both are involved in the operation of some interesting niche bingo and casino sites, including Tidy Bingo, Raw Bingo and Casino and Film Bingo. The pair of Raw titles has an interesting and distinctive punk theme, with vibrant colours and Warhol style imagery that takes you right back to the late 70s. Well, only if you’re of a certain age I suppose. Meanwhile, Film Bingo is intriguing as it in fact helps to cross fund the film production division: profits from the site are redirected to its big brother in order to “help films get made”.
Tidy Gaming is also responsible for the operation of the bingo portal Playing Bingo. This acts as an affiliate site and provides up to date news regarding the bingo industry and links to favoured partners and recommended sites.
Day Trip Media is another linked organisation. This company acts as an online marketing and promotional company within the gaming industry, again with a specific focus on bingo. It runs several well regarded affiliate sites and has some conventional bingo and casino site interests too. Just to complete the circle, this company is involved in film as well as web based production. The company was involved in assisting in the production of Dogs of Annwn’s two completed films, Devil’s Bridge and The Lighthouse. Further movies are in production at the time of writing.
In practice, it is best to see this confederation of companies as being interlinked. They are all involved in each other’s activities to the mutual benefit and advantage of all. In effect, this team of companies act as south Wales’ own little corner of the online gaming and film production industry: the media giants of Cardiff!
