Marianne O'Reilly
Vancouver Film School (VFS), one of Canada’s leading post-secondary entertainment arts institutions, announced that Marianne O’Reilly is the new head of the animation and visual effects department.

“VFS has an outstanding reputation,” says O’Reilly. “I’m honored to be a part of this world-class school and am incredibly impressed by the quality of work from VFS graduates. I look forward to contributing my passion for education and creativity and believe that we all have a very bright future ahead full of exciting new opportunities!”

With notable credits and executive oversight in visual effects production on such series and films as Stargate SG-1, The Outer Limits, Dead Like Me, Night at the Museum, Garfield, Blades of Glory, Vantage Point, Tropic Thunder and Changeling, O’Reilly has over 20 years of experience in the entertainment industry. She started her career at Rainmaker Entertainment as a visual effects producer, which culminated in her promotion to president of the visual effects division in 2007. She then played an instrumental role in the sale of the company’s Vancouver and London facilities to Deluxe Entertainment and the CIS Visual Effects Group in 2008. An active member of the Visual Effects Society, O’Reilly served as a board member from 2007-2009.

“We are so excited to have Marianne join VFS. Her depth of experience and credits, coupled with her strong industry connections, are an indisputable fit with the future of animation and visual effects at VFS,” says Marty Hasselbach, VFS managing director.
