'Tube' Open Movie Internships at Bit Films


Bit Films are offering another Blender internship. But be quick: the application deadline is next Monday!

Calling all students (18+), recent graduates, and professionals wanting to ply their 3D skills in free software:

Applications are open to join Bassam’s team this spring for the production of Tube, hosted by the very cool Bit Films Animation Incubator at Hampshire College, Massachusetts.

Helmed by Chris Perry, formerly of Pixar and Rhythm & Hues, the program draws together a number of interesting projects and a lot of talent, so although the internships are unpaid, it promises to be a very stimulating and fruitful space.

For applicants to Tube, there is a possibility that housing can be offered.

The official internship period runs from February 7, 2011 through May 13, 2011. Applications are due (via email) no later than Monday January 31, 2011 at 5pm (EDT).  We understand that this is short lead time for those in need of making visa and travel arrangements. Because the project is ongoing, the internship period is flexible; if in doubt, apply!

Although it may not provide as immersive an experience, we are open to considering applicants to a remote internship. Remote interns would join the already semi-distributed team using our web-based project management software, SVN, and IRC.

  1. Hi Marimba -- so far no intern has needed to paid for housing, and there also tends to be quite a bit of free food available on campus, which helps keep expense to a minimum. Since it is not a paid internship, we do our best to limit costs.
    It is also worth noting that internships are a valuable way of getting work experience/development, but can also lead to employment, directly or through the connections they provide.

    Josip -- thanks!

  2. sigh sigh sigh its only wishful thinking for me but congrats to the successful applicant. i will seriously be green with envy;D

  3. Thanks Fateh!

    I understood housing was optional but you answer sets the record straight.

    I now see you all mean well and would definitely recommend anyone to apply for your internship. I would apply for it if it wasn't for the fact I have some previous obligations.

    All the best in the world with the projects, hope to see the advancements or final products on blender nation.
