Cinesite is now accepting applications for its annual internship program, Inspire. Now in its third year,
a new technical effects strand has been added.
|The new technical effects strand specifically targets graduates with an interest in computer programming or technical effects. Antony Hunt, managing director, added the new placement to encourage recently skilled programmers to consider the VFX industry as a viable option for their skills, and to help new effects artists demonstrate their technical ability.|
|Cinesite’s visual effects internship will run in conjunction with the technical effects internship. Both placements are six-week paid positions which will start this summer. The technical effects strand is aimed at graduates who either have a background in computer programming or have studied computer graphics, but are interested in technical effects and programming. The visual effects internship is suited to artists with a background in computer animation or computer graphics who are interested in modelling, animation, compositing, digital matte painting and other visual effects positions.
Previous Inspire winners have worked on Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, and are currently working on John Carter and World War Z. Since finishing their placements, all six winners have since secured positions at Cinesite. Antony Hunt said the number of submissions received for Inspire is always surprising, and he finds the quality and level of creativity in the entries improves every year. This year he will be looking out for some genius programmers as well.
The deadline to submit entries is 13 April. To apply or find application packs and information visit www.cinesite.com/internships.
