I applied for a work placement / animation internship in GLUE in April and was pleased to receive a quick response from Ray Mongey, the Managing Director. He invited me for a chat in their office located (at the time) in Mill Street, South Dublin.
We’re only half way through the year so far, but 2015 has overall proven to be a really busy year for us, one which has seen GLUE continue to expand and grow, from the small operation it began as (in 2013) to the thriving company it is today.
We took time out to chat with Birch Hamilton, Founder/Director of Digital Biscuit, Glen Southern (zBrush master) and Richard Glynn of Studio Powwow to find out their thoughts on this years event which GLUE had the pleasure of being a partner of.
Digital Biscuit Dublin 2015 is upon us already and GLUE have been displaying at the event with a show-reel of some of our proudest moments. Looking around, we thought it would be criminal of us not to share with you just some of the people, educators, companies, services and products on show at the event.

There has been a revolution in filmmaking, we explain how previs is changing the visual effects world for the better. Many would argue that the process has revolutionised filmmaking, some of the most successful and visually stunning films have used and continue to utilise previs.
