About Me

The DEAD Academy (Denver Entertainment Art and Design Academy) is a Denver based art school specializing in helping students develop powerful portfolios to get them into the art side of movies, video games, comic books, monster makeup and other fields.

Our teachers, current and future, are and will be professionals in their respective fields, with knowledge of what art directors and editors look for when hiring new talent, and they will help students gear their portfolios toward those criteria.

The school will be needing models down the road, both nude and clothed, for our life drawing classes and workshops. Because we are training for careers in the entertainment industry, the models we bring in will have to be dynamic, energetic, and have a heroic look and bearing. For clothed models, we prefer models with costumes that look futuristic or historical or sci-fi or fantasy. There are a lot of ways to interpret this, and we don't want to limit the creativity.

Founder Zak Hennessey has worked in the entertainment field for over 15 years in Colorado, Los Angeles and New York. In that time, his jobs included comic books (pencils, inks and colors), illustration, movie pre-production and post-production, storyboards, graphic design, movie posters, advertising, character and production design, t-shirt design, pin-up art, logos, title treatments, and a wide range of other artistic endeavors.

While in Los Angeles, he worked for a long list of clients, including Sony, Fox Sports, Paramount, Showtime, Warner Brothers, and Disney (and many others)

If the Art Academy hires a model, it will always be a paying gig. As the school grows we will need more and more models, but at the moment our model needs are very limited. Eventually we will need models for life drawing, painting, photography, film, anatomy, and character design classes. We will also be hosting specialized workshops that may need models.

Right now we are trying to build a database of prospective models. We don't yet know what a teacher might want, so we'd like as many connections as possible. We will be contacting local models to introduce ourselves and the DEAD Academy.

If you have any questions, or want to get in our database, send us a message here and we'll talk!

Thanks for reading all this.
