Dave Quinn Takes the Reins at Windmill Lane

Dave Quinn has taken over as managing director of Windmill Lane Pictures while James Morris will assume the role of non-executive chairman of the group.

Quinn previously headed up Windmill Lane’s Commercials Department for a number of years but his new role will see him take over responsibility for the group’s entire business.

Creative Director Ian Jacobs will take over the Commercials Department while Locky Butler takes over as head of Windmill’s Audio division. Butler will also be responsible for the day-to-day running of the studios

“We have a fantastic team of creatives and producers, and our focus is to continue to improve the quality of both end-product & the working experience for our clients here in Windmill,” says Ian Jacobs.

According to Dave Quinn; “Over the past few years Windmill has been making huge inroads in the International arena with Film & Drama projects such as Lock-Out, Titanic: Blood & Steel, Albert Nobbs & Haywire, and in particular the local smash hit Love/Hate series.”

“In audio there has been great collaboration with the growing animation sector in projects such as Doc McStuffins & Peter Rabbit. Windmill’s programming sector has recently enjoyed great successes with projects such as Radharc and the Adoption Stories series.”

“On the Commercials front, Windmill has had several very strong years in the local market, post-producing many of the most memorable campaigns on TV, whilst internationally providing post-production on two high-profile Strongbow Cider campaigns for worldwide territories.”

He added “moving from our old premises in the docklands to Herbert Street in 2010 has been a great success for Windmill, particularly in these challenging times. We now have a purpose-built facility of truly international standing and a digital post-production pipeline which is second to none. Combined with our highly talented and hugely dedicated teams, this allows us to continue to remain at the forefront of post-production in Ireland, whilst also building a solid reputation internationally.”
