Iona's story

Iona Brinch is from Denmark and studied a Diploma of Digital Media (Advanced) at ACG Yoobee

“I have wanted to go to New Zealand since first watching Lord of the Rings when I was 11, and I finally got the chance to go there on a working holiday visa in 2011. I met some people who were working at Weta Studios and they invited me to a workshop. One thing led to another and I ended up helping out with various projects at Weta Studios until December 2012.
