Cinesite Appoints Animation Director

Cinesite has announced it has appointed Eamonn Butler as animation director to head up its expanding animation division. Butler joins from Double Negative where he was head of animation and supervised a catalogue of high-profile films, including Ironman 2, John Carter, Hellboy 2, Paul and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
Butler will be based at Cinesite's head office in Soho, London, and responsible for leading its high-end character animation team. He also joins the company's board. Antony Hunt, managing director of Cinesite, said: "I'd like to welcome Eamonn to Cinesite. His wealth of experience means he's well placed to lead our team of talented animators as we branch out in to more character driven animation films."
Prior to joining Double Negative, Butler spent ten years at Walt Disney Feature Animation in Burbank, California, where he worked on numerous features including Chicken Little, Dinosaur and Fantasia 2000. He trained under veteran Disney animator David Brain at Dublin's Dun Laoire College of Art and Design and spent four years working as a traditional animator, storyboard artist and animation director, before switching to CG.
