Visual effects house Cinesite has announced Adam Bailey as the winner of its annual Inspire internship programme. Adam will be working with Cinesite this Summer on a major film production.
Cinesite’s Inspire programme 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 facilities experience on high-end films.
This year’s winner Adam 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 in a new direction. His showreel and application instantly caught the attention of the judges.
Eamonn Butler, animation director at Cinesite, says, “Adam won me over with his passion for animation. His hunger to learn, coupled with a natural talent for performance, made him stand out in this competition.”
Previous winners of Cinesite’s Inspire internship have worked for them on productions including Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, John Carter and Skyfall and are now established visual effects professionals working all over the world.

Cinesite, which recently completed visual effects for World War Z, Iron Man 3, Jack Ryan, 300: Rise of an Empire and Black Sky, 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. During this time the company has built relationships with educational facilities in the UK and around the world, giving advice and support to tutors and students in order to support emerging talent in the industry.
“Since we began Inspire, the standard of work from students and graduates has consistently improved, year on year,” says Cinesite managing director Antony Hunt. “The UK is creating world-class visual effects artists and I have no doubt that Adam will move easily into production at Cinesite.”
