We’ve got a very special open day coming up this week, when we’ll be joined by Eamonn Butler for an insight into his career in VFX. And if his film ‘Beans’ (above) is anything to go by, Eamonn’s sense of humour will keep you entertained throughout.
Eamonn Butler is a renowned Animation Director, responsible for managing and developing Cinesite’s growing animation department. He recently oversaw Cinesite’s work on ‘Edge of Tomorrow’ and was Animation Supervisor for ‘Hercules’.
Previously at Double Negative, he spent six years as Head of Animation, building up a team from six to over 100 for ‘John Carter’. He also supervised work on a catalogue of films, including ‘Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix’, ‘Hellboy 2’, ‘Ironman 2’ and ‘Paul’.
Before coming to London, Eamonn spent ten years at Walt Disney Feature Animation in California. He progressed from Senior Animator on ‘Fantasia 2000’ to Character Supervisor on ‘Dinosaur’ and Animation Supervisor for ‘Reign of Fire’, ‘Wildfire’ and ‘Chicken Little’. While there, Eamonn developed and ran a curriculum and training course, which taught Disney’s traditional animators to become CG animators.
Eamonn trained under veteran Disney animator David Brain at Dublin's Dun Laoghaire College of Art and Design and spent four years working as a traditional animator, storyboard artist and animation director, before switching to CG.
If you’d like to learn from Eamonn's years of experience, come along to our open day this Wednesday, 2 Sepetember, starting at 09:45.
