Of the Inspire talent development programme, head of production Caroline Garrett said, “There is a wealth of talented people waiting to get their first break in the VFX industry; twenty years after I started out, I remain grateful for being given that first chance myself. I’m thrilled that we are able to offer this fantastic opportunity to students and post graduates to gain first-hand experience on exciting feature film projects.”
