Scrat is looking for a few good interns. That’s right, Greenwich, Connecticut-based Blue Sky Studios, the company behind the durable Ice Age movies and this summer’s upcoming Epic feature has announced its 2013 summer internship program. Billed as a fun, exciting and educationally packed 10 weeks, the Blue Sky Studios internship program offers aspiring animators a chance to work in a real-world environment. Each intern is specially selected and placed in a department that best fits their skills and interests. Throughout this period, they will be mentored and supervised by a Blue Sky pro in that field.
The studio encourages computer science, animation or production management students to apply for this internship program. Blue Sky will be posting more details in the weeks to come, but applicants can get a head start by gathering two letters of recommendation from either professors, or professionals in the business. For artistic positions, applicants will need to create an on-line portfolio and/or reel to show off their best work. The application process opens on Feb. 25 and closes on April 12, 2013. The internship program runs from June 3 until August 9, 2013.
Internship is open to all college students currently in their senior or junior years. Applications from those who have graduated within the three months prior to the internship start date will be accepted as well.
