Internship 2D Storyboard Internship role at Blue-Zoo Animation

Blue Zoo – Posted by admin England, United Kingdom

Job Description

Blue Zoo has a worldwide reputation for expertly crafting characterful CG animation. We pride ourselves on creating work that everyone involved with is immensely proud of, in a studio that cultivates friendship & creativity in a positive environment.

Over the last 19 years our animations have won many awards, including multiple BAFTAs, but that’s just the start – we have big ambitions for the future!

Our internship programme runs every summer to give opportunity to those seeking a “foot-in-the-door” into the animation industry.

It is ideal for those who have zero professional experience but have entry level knowledge, such as those in 2nd year of University studying animation, who are chomping-at-the-bit to gain industry experience.

Being an intern means more than just ‘helping out’. As an intern, you’ll get exposure to real projects and challenges in a creative, collaborative environment and gain real studio experience. You’ll also work with the brightest and best in the industry and contribute as a member of the studio team.

The Blue Zoo Internship will give you the opportunity to develop your artistic and creative skills while building an impressive portfolio in a professional environment. You’ll work within project teams and with other roles in our studio, such as directors, storyboard artists, riggers, etc. This will give you the chance to build your network, as well as developing a range of skills and gaining valuable industry experience.

There is no expectation that the work you produce during your time with us will be used in production, you will be here to learn about how an animation studio works, advance your skills and make connections.

Each internship will be paid the National Minimum Wage of £308 a week.

This year we have eight internship positions across different CG and 2D animation disciplines. To apply you need to upload the following to your profile: Up to date showreel/portfolio and CV.
