about

Established in 2017 by Joe Coveney and John O’Connell, they specialise in creating short animated content using a hybrid of stop-motion and digital techniques.

John and Joe met in 1995 – the first day of Art College, and between them they have over 40 years working in the creative industries.

John first studied painting in National College of Art & Design, then sculpture and the Royal College of Art in London, and most recently animation in Ballyfermot.

Joe also studied painting in National College of Art & Design, followed by sculpture at Winchester School of Art. In 2015 he was awarded a scholarship to Domus Academy in Milan, where he obtained a MA in Product design.

Studio 9 grew organically out of their collaborations.

It has become a place for them to bring all of their knowledge, skills and experiences together to make innovative work that inspires and excites!
