Workshops in prop-making, prosthetics and model-making


THE film industry in the Mid-West region has enjoyed great growth over the past few years and Limerick and Clare Education and Training Board continues to partner with Innovate Limerick through Film in Limerick to deliver new training initiatives in this area. This new project is delivered by Odyssey Studios located on the Dock Road in Limerick.
Odyssey Studios is one of Europe’s largest model-making studios, providing a comprehensive in-house design and fabrication service, using the latest in modern technology.
It provides crucial support to the international film industry with model making, set design/props and unique prosthetic developments. The studio uses cutting-edge 3D computer design technology, and 3D printing and robotic manufacturing processes, allowing seamless transition from concept, to design, and into production.
Mark Maher is CEO, Founder and Creative Director at Odyssey Studios, bringing with him nearly twenty years of international experience in the industry. His credit list includes The Hobbit – The Battle of the Five Armies, The Desolation of Smaug and An Unexpected Journey, Alice Through the Looking Glass, Penny Dreadful and Into the Badlands, to name but a few.
Now Mark and his team bring a series of fully-funded programmes at their Limerick studio, starting this March.
Programmes will include a Prop Making Workshop which will focus on prop design, moulding and casting, hero, fight and stunt weapon fabrication. It will also cover painting, weathering and ageing techniques.
A Prosthetic Make-up Workshop will cover sculpting, moulding and fabrication of gel-filled material. This programme will also cover flat mould prosthetics.
The last offering in this series is a Sci-Fi Miniature Model-Making Workshop which will cover the design and fabrication of a sci-fi miniature model from concept to construction.
