We are thrilled by the "totally awesome" render tests coming off the farm, with supreme animatador / pixelero Pablo Vazquez (venomgfx) heading up lighting and look-dev, but there is juicy work still to do on the Tube production, so we invite interested artists to check out our open task list and internship positions announced below!
And if you are an artist with a bit of time who would like to get involved as a contributor, please contact us!
Calling all students, recent graduates and professionals wanting to ply their 3D skills in free/libre software:
Join Bassam and the URCHN crew this spring as a remote or local artist on the Tube Open Movie production, hosted by the Bit Films animation incubator at Hampshire College, Massachusetts. Helmed by Chris Perry, formerly of Pixar and Rhythm & Hues, the program draws together a lot of talent, so although internships are unpaid, it promises to be a very stimulating and fruitful space. These positions offer an opportunity to improve your skills, develop your reel, and make useful contacts in the industry. The official internship period runs from Monday February 4 through Friday May 17, 2013. Applications are due (via email) no later than Friday February 1, 2013, at 5pm (EDT). Because the project is ongoing, the internship period is flexible; if in doubt, apply! Please read carefully the open positions announcement and FAQ. Have questions about internships? Email us!
