Emma Rooney

VFX Producer

Emma Rooney’s career in the television and film industry began after she graduated from Galway Film School in 2006. She started as a sound designer in her home town of Galway, working on shows for Nickelodeon and the Cartoon Network.

After a brief stint in broadcasting, working for Setanta Sports and Channel 7 in Melbourne, Australia, she gravitated back home to a booming animation industry. She joined Brown Bag films’ post-production department in 2011, where she worked on award­ winning shows including Disney’s Henry Hugglemonster, Doc McStuffins and the BBC’s The Octonauts.

She joined Egg in early 2014 as a VFX producer on the Warner Brothers feature film Ghosthunters: On Icy Trails. She has worked on the IFTA -winning 50 Ways To Kill Your Mammy for Sky One and Sony/ABC’s new family series Imaginary Mary. She has an innate ability to put out fires and an unhealthy obsession for multicoloured post-its.
