Cinesite Seeks To Develop Next Generation of Visual Effects Talent

Category: Student/School News
London - Film visual effects company Cinesite has launched its Inspire Program, an annual internship for graduates. The program offers a six-week paid placement at the company’s Soho facility and the opportunity to gain invaluable experience working alongside some of the industry’s most experienced visual effects professionals on blockbuster films.

Cinesite is credited with producing visual effects for high-profile projects, such as The Golden Compass and the Harry Potter franchise.

The Inspire Programme was devised by Cinesite in response to a lack of formalized visual effects internship program for students. “We’re committed to developing the next generation of visual effects talent,” managing director, Antony Hunt, explains. “After running a successful event in September for tutors of effects courses all over the UK, and establishing ties with colleges and universities who nurture the next generation of visual effects professionals, we’re confident that this will be a popular program. We’re also working with Imperial College London on a number of interesting projects and hope to launch something in parallel with ‘Inspire’ in the coming months.”

The Inspire Program placement will run during the summer of 2010 and is open to graduates or undergraduates due to finish university before summer 2010. Cinesite will accept applications in the form of a three-minute showreel showcasing their best work, from people with interest in compositing, lighting, texturing, effects, modeling, animation and digital matte painting. The application process closes on April 2, 2010 and the winner will be announced on May 10.

Entrants must hold a relevant graduate qualification. For more information about Cinesite’s Inspire Program, visit
