Milk to open VFX studio in Ireland
22 Mar 2023 : News Desk
Award-winning VFX Studio Milk is to continue its growth by opening a new studio in Dublin, having announced the opening of a new studio in Bordeaux in January.

Overseeing its creative launch and sitting on the board of the Irish company, will be Milk VFX Supervisor, Ciaran Crowley. Crowley is a highly experienced visual effects supervisor whose career includes work on 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’ 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 The Woman King, the second series of Amazon’s Good Omens, and Warner Bros. Meg 2.

“As part of our plans to build a European presence, we’re delighted to be opening our own Milk studio for business in Dublin.” said Jag Mundi, Milk Executive Chairman. “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 added: “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.”

Milk was founded by a team of VFX supervisors and producers in 2013. The studio has won multiple awards for its creative work, including three BAFTA Television Craft awards, and an Emmy. In 2016 co-owner Sara Bennett became the first woman in twenty years to win an Oscar for best VFX on the film Ex-Machina at the 88th Academy Awards. Milk’s credits also include feature films Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald, The Old Guard, and Kingsman: The Golden Circle.
