Under the guidance of practicing professionals they encourage their students to build practical foundations, while expanding their vision and exploring new avenues of expression.

Image Ireland’s first ever Storyboard open night will be held on December 8th and CEO Stephen Lohan urges anybody interested in Storyboarding to come along. That night will be with Ian McCaffrey who has Storyboarded for shows such as ‘Penny Dreadful’ and J.A Bayona's new feature film ‘A Monster Calls’.

  • Storytelling Through Copywriting with Copywriter and Creative Ian Brower
  • Python Scripting with Luke Harris from Brown Bag Films

CEO Stephen Lohan says of Image Ireland’s array of courses and tutors: ‘Our tutors are our strength and your gain but we are actually trying to create a VFX community here at Image Ireland. I think it’s important for people to know that they can call in here at any time to have a chat with me or any of our tutors – if there is any tutor in particular you want to talk to we can give out their number and you can call them. Along with our courses, we will also be introducing more open nights at the Sugar Club in the new year. We want people to get that sense of community here and want to be at the hub of VFX in Ireland.’

Image Ireland was recently positively reviewed on 3D World, the best-selling international magazine for CG artists. More information on the school can be found on their site: www.imageireland.ie/. They can be reached by phone at +353 1 6751787 and by email at infoimageireland@gmail.com.
