Rob Cullen, the Creative Director of Boulder Media, an Irish animation company based in Dublin, says “we were impressed by the standard of the graduate and student films that were screened at this year’s Dublin Animation Film Festival. It was a tough choice as there was so many contenders for our internship prize.

"We are looking forward to welcoming Joshua to Boulder Media in January 2019.”

The company was established in 2000 and since has grown to become one of Ireland’s largest animation studios.

Boulder has been successful in attracting high profile projects from across the globe and has worked with leading broadcasters such as Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, BBC, Disney UK and US.

In 2016 the studio was acquired by Hasbro Inc. and is currently working on Transformers, Rescue Bots Academy, My Little Pony along with continuing to work with BBC on Danger-Mouse.

Joshua Hogan, internship prize winner says “It is a great honour to win the prize of a three-month paid internship with Boulder Media.

“I was thrilled that my graduate film ‘Whack Jobs’ was part of the official selection at this year’s Dublin Animation Film Festival 2018 as I know I was facing a lot of competition, but to win the Boulder Media prize is huge!

“I have met some members of the Boulder team already and I am really looking forward to getting started in January 2019, it’s a great way to start the New Year.

“I’d like to thank Boulder Media and Dublin Animation Film Festival as well as my family and the lecturers and mentors in BCFE, I wouldn’t have won this prize without them.”
