John Kennedy is executive creative director with Windmill Lane, a content creation, audio, vfx and post production studio in Dublin, Ireland.
In a 20+ year career to date, his work has seen him team up with world class visual story tellers, creatives, designers, film makers, musicians and artists across the media and entertainment sectors and contribute to the output of some of the best local and international creative agencies on content for some of the worlds most recognisable brands.
From an early interest in how stuff is put together (he was the kid who played with the broken toys) the power of a good story, and how computers could give him an excuse to give up drawing at art college, his career has seen him work as a bomb disposal robot designer, cheesemaker (sort of), graphic designer, editor, animator, music video director, photographer, writer, film maker, visual effects supervisor and more.
Personal projects are of huge importance and essential he believes, to any creative’s repertoire. Not a fan of the “but that’s how we’ve always done it” approach, he has more recently been behind the establishment of Windmill Create, an award winning “in-house” motion and content creation studio at the heart of Windmill Lane dedicated to driving cultural change across all aspects of the studio, challenging convention and seeking new collaborative opportunities wherever possible through a more creative first, expertise driven offering.
