Blue Zoo Summer Internships Now Open

Applications for Blue Zoo's summer internships are now open. These 6-8 week paid placements in animation, storyboarding and visual development are described by Blue Zoo as "like a real job but without the demands & expectations, allowing participants to develop and learn how a big animation studio works and real projects are run".

Blue Zoo, who are based in central London, near Great Portland Street, describe these positions as "an incredible opportunity for artists with no experience to learn from professionals, hone their skills and build vital connections to give their careers a kick-start."

What is this about?
Blue Zoo's internship programme runs every Summer to give opportunity to those seeking a “foot-in-the-door” into the animation industry.

Who are internships for?
Internships are "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."

Will intern work get used on production?
There is "no expectation that the work interns produce will be used in production, they are there to learn about how an animation studio works, advance their skills and make connections."

Is it paid?
Yes. These are paid roles.

How many internships are on offer?
This year there are five. To apply for an internship in Maya Animation, Storyboarding, Visual Development, CG Generalist or Rigging visit Blue Zoo's official website:
