Final year BA (Hons) Visual Effects and Motion Graphics students Jordanne Richards and Katherine Sykes have been the first to gain employment at the new Cardiff-based hub of multi-Bafta-award-winners Milk Visual Effects


Milk have recently opened an office at the GloWorks building in Cardiff Bay, joining the emerging infrastructure for the creative industries in the city and have been fast to snap up the best of the local talent emerging from USW.


Katherine and Jordanne are both due to graduate with a first class degree in Visual Effects and Motion Graphics, so it is an outstanding achievement to gain employment, almost immediately after their studies.


Jordanne said: “I’m still in shock that I will be working for Milk VFX next week, but that feeling is overthrown by the excitement to work with a company that have helped create some of my favorite Television shows! It will be great to finally put everything I learnt from the past three years into practice”


Katherine added: “The visual effects course has been really great fun and allowed me to learn something that I genuinely enjoy, at a high standard. We've put in loads of effort during the past three years so getting employed straight away is very exciting. Milk work on some amazing shows and I can’t wait to be part of the team.”


Will Cohen, Milk’s CEO said:, "We are super proud to train and support local Cardiff VFX talent - and Jordanne and Kat will make great additions to the Milk team. The Welsh Government's support for the creative industries has helped make this happen and we look forward to growing the team further."


Milk are in production on ITV’s 13-part warrior drama Beowulf, Fox TV’s The Bastard Executioner, BBC’s Doctor Who series nine and recently finished feature film reboot Poltergeist and the film High Rise which stars Welsh actor Luke Evans.


And if that’s not enough they are also working on the new series of Thunderbirds for ITV and BBC Wales’ Sherlock.
