Ten Top Tips for Intern applicants ...



Q: Can you give me any tips on internship application?
A: Yes we can:
01.Send a SHORT introductory email, outlining what you are looking for.
02.Put something relevant in the subject field so we can find your email later.
03.We go straight to the work so long emails are going to get skimmed over.
04.We don't need your life story yet - we can find that out later.
05.We only look at CV's if we already love your work ...
06.Send NO ATTACHMENTS via emails, they can get caught up in firewalls.
07.However, we MUST see some work! An email asking for employment or an internship, without a link to your work, is an instant no.
08.Just send us a VIMEO link to your reel (don’t use YouTube as we get distracted by the cat videos in the sidebar).
09.An Online portfolio, Tumbler or weblink is also better than an PDF.
10.Only show us your very best work. Even if that’s just a single shot. We can always look at longer films & clips once we’re hooked on you..


FAQ.



Q: Can you give me feedback on my work?
A: Sorry, but we have to decline all invitations to provide professional feedback or critiques on reels & folios.

Q: Do you offer Internships?
A: On an occasional annual basis as we are a small studio. If a place is available we'll post a notice on this page. Our one top tip for applicants is this: BE EXCEPTIONAL!

Q: But I sent you my reel ages ago?
A: Due to the very high volume of email enquiries we receive on a daily basis, we are unable to give immediate feedback for internship or general work enquiries. We do look at everything we receive and we will respond if we wish to follow up. Thank you...

Q: School work experience?
A: We can't offer school age work experience placements. Sorry.

Q: Will you help me on my thesis?
A: No. We cannot respond to requests for thesis interviews or fill out questionnaires etc.

Q: Will you read my script?
A: No. We do NOT accept or read unsolicited scripts or story ideas for film or TV productions unless it is via a recognised literary agent or by request.

Q: Can I visit you?
A: No. We are a very small & very busy studio, so forgive us if we can't show you round.

Q: Will you visit us?
A: Maybe... but as much as we love visiting people, if we said yes to every invitation we would never get any work done, so it all depends. We do our best to organise lectures & presentations where we can, and we mentor students from time to time - strictly at our invitation. Contact Production to see if we can come and talk to you, but please understand why if we have to decline ...

Q: What software do you use?
A: Pencils, Paper, TV Paint, the entire Adobe Suite and all the tools of Autodesk. Occasionally some cardboard, paint & string...

Q: How long does it take to make your animation?
A: On average – between a few weeks and a few years … Each project is unique and has its own requirements.

Q: How much does it cost?
A: Once we've worked out how much string we need, we cost it accordingly...
