Richie Conroy & Mark Hodkinson have collaborated on projects for over a decade. Their animated feature film ‘Two by Two‘ was released worldwide in 2015 and a sequel, Two by Two: Overboard, was released in UK cinemas in October 2020. They are currently writing another feature, ‘The Defects: Finding Hope‘, and have a number of other films in development with companies including the Irish Film Board, Wunderwerk and Treasure Entertainment.

Richie & Mark also work as head writers and showrunners and through their own production company, Snowluke Pictures, wrote and directed two series of the live-action comedy series ‘Fran: Assistant Manager‘ which was broadcast in Ireland, USA, Canada and Australia. They have been hired as a writing team on productions (including ‘Groove High‘, Disney UK) and to develop projects by production companies including King Bert, Boulder Media and Jam Media.

Richie & Mark were invited to attend the BBC comedy unit’s College of Comedy and were awarded development funding for their own live-action sitcom, ‘Sparks‘, which was subsequently optioned by Jellylegs.
