Cinesite Launches Inspire Internship

A leading film visual effects houses, has opened pre-registration for its successful annual internship programme, Inspire.
New to this year's Cinesite initiative is a separate technical effects strand, which specifically targets graduates with an interest in computer programming or technical effects – in direct response to what Cinesite sees as a distinct lack of skilled programmers coming into the VFX industry.
"We've had great success over the past two years finding talented graduates to fill our traditional visual effects internship, but we’ve noticed that our industry is severely lacking young talented computer programmers,” said Antony Hunt, Managing Director of Cinesite.
"With this new strand we’re aiming to attract graduates with science degrees and educate them on how they can build a career in this exciting world-class industry."
The technical effects internship will run in conjunction with the visual effects internship. Both placements are paid positions and will run for six weeks in the summer of 2012. The technical effects strand is targeting people with interests in writing shaders and programming for pipelines, as well as aspiring effects TDs. And the visual effects strand targets people with interests in digital matte painting, animation, lighting, texturing, modelling, FX and compositing.
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 of the winners have secured positions at Cinesite.
“Inspire has grown year-on-year since we launched it in 2009, and we’re excited to run two different strands in 2012. I’d urge anyone who’s interested in either placement to register for an application pack now,” added Hunt.
Application packs for both placements are available to download now from:
Submissions will be accepted from 9 January 2012.
