London VFX Internship Opportunity for Animation Apprentice Students!

Soho VFX
Animation Apprentice has been contacted recently by a leading London animation and VFX house looking to arrange for some Motion Graphics/Animation students to do internships, at 2-4 week intervals, starting in May and rolling out through the Summer. They specialise in "high-end moving image design", and their recent work includes Eurovision Greatest Hits, Sunday Night at the Palladium, The Voice, Strictly Come Dancing and The BBC Music Awards.

Is this a paid internship?
No. The scheme isn’t paid, though they will cover expenses (£10 per day) and if they assign students any commercial work whilst at the company, they will pay a daily rate for that. 

Who should apply?
The internship will would probably suit students looking to use their After Effects skills, or possibly Cinema 4D, Photoshop, Illustrator or Premiere. 

What kind of projects will you work on?
They can’t predict exactly what projects the students would be involved with, but it should at the very least, provide a decent overview of what happens on a day-to-day basis in the industry. They have had some success with this scheme in the past, with some students being offered freelance work.

How should students apply?
Students will need to send in their CV, a covering letter and a showreel link; if successful this will be followed by an interview.
