A SKIBBEREEN man was presented with a prestigious film award in Los Angelus recently.
Eoin Greenham, who grew in Aughadown and went to Kilcoe National School, St Fachtna’s De La Salle and University College Cork, is now living in London, where he heads up a 3D conversion team.
The team of five all travelled to the Paramount Pictures Studios in Hollywood the day before Eoin’s birthday where they were presented with the Advanced Imaging Society’s Lumiere technology award.
At home, his dad, Geoff Greenham, told The Southern Star: ‘I am very proud of their achievement because this award is the equivalent of an Oscar in the technical side of film making.’
The society’s Lumiere statuettes were presented to companies that achieved both ‘innovation and impact’ in moving the entertainment industry forward.
Geoff said that Prime Focus World, the London-based firm that Eoin has been working with for the last seven years, is one of the biggest companies working on special effects.
Over the last five years, Eoin and his team have been tasked with developing software for 3D conversion.
Speaking at the awards ceremony, he said: ‘I am delighted to have had the opportunity to work on some of the best 3D content with the biggest studios in the world.’
