LONDON — VFX house Cinesite (www.cinesite.com) has announced that Adam Bailey is the winner of its annual Inspire internship program. Bailey will be working with Cinesite this summer on a major film production.
Cinesite’s Inspire program supports courses in visual effects, technical effects and programming. An internship is awarded on an annual basis to students and recent graduates looking for an opportunity to gain experience working in a cutting edge facility on high-end films.
Bailey developed a passion for animation and animated films at a young age. Having graduated from Leeds Metropolitan University with a degree in architecture, he realized that animation was the career path he should have taken, and enrolled in online courses to advance his 3D skills. His show reel and application caught the attention of the judges.
Previous winners of Cinesite’s Inspire internship have worked for them on Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, John Carter and Skyfall, and are now established visual effects professionals working all over the world. Cinesite recently completed visual effects for World War Z, Iron Man 3, Jack Ryan, 300: Rise of an Empire and Black Sky. The studio is currently working on All You Need is Kill and The Monuments Men, an upcoming Columbia Pictures/Fox production produced and directed by George Clooney.
This is the fourth year that Cinesite has run Inspire.
