Award-winning VFX Studio Milk is to continue its growth plans by opening a new studio in Dublin with ambitions to become a leading VFX Studio in the Irish market.
Overseeing its creative launch and sitting on the board of the Irish company, will be Milk VFX Supervisor and Dublin native, Ciaran Crowley. Ciaran is a highly experienced visual effects supervisor whose career has spanned work on many notable shows such as Inception, The Dark Knight, and Harry Potter. His recent Milk projects include BAFTA nominated Cursed (Netflix), Me Time (Netflix), Catherine Called Birdy (Amazon/Working Title) and Swagger (Apple TV).
Milk’s new Dublin based studio will operate with local talent and be able to leverage Milk’s leading edge creative technology and resources infrastructure. The Milk Ireland Studio will collaborate on key projects including Loud Minds’ ambitious new eight-part NBC series Surviving Earth as well as a number of existing and new exciting feature and episodic projects under the Milk network of businesses.
This announcement and the recent opening of Milk France is part of Milk’s strategic plans to build a European presence and access talent. It also follows on from the acquisition of Soho-based, award winning VFX Studio, Lola Post Production in October, as Milk continues to boost its capabilities and creativity across an exciting range of episodic and film projects, including Sony/TriStar’s highly acclaimed The Woman King, the much anticipated second series of Amazon’s Good Omens, and Warner Bros. Meg 2.
Jag Mundi, Milk Executive Chairman said:
“As part of our plans to build a European presence, we’re delighted to be opening our own Milk studio for business in Dublin. Milk has placed work within the Irish marketplace for a number of years and we think its the natural next step for us to make a full commitment. Ciaran is an exceptional leader with extremely good knowledge of the local market and its talent. We believe the Studio has the potential to develop into a full service studio mirroring Milk London’s capabilities and culture and leveraging work from Milk’s existing network of VFX businesses.”
Ciaran Crowley, VFX Supervisor said:
“As a Dublin native, I am especially pleased we will be setting up a studio at home. Ireland has a wealth of fabulous talent, and taking our long standing involvement in the Irish VFX industry to the next stage will enable us to create more premium high quality film and episodic content for our clients while supporting and enhancing the on-going skills development of Ireland as a significant centre for the VFX industry.
Our Dublin Studio, will utilise next generation VFX solutions for both onset and inhouse. It will be built to be client, artist and technology driven from the outset, focusing over time on all aspects of delivering high-end and complex work. “
