Summer Internships on the 'Tube' Open Movie


Bit Films is an independent digital production studio existing at the intersection of industry and academia. This summer, we are offering multiple unpaid internship opportunities on our ongoing animated film projects. They are ideal for students (18+), recent graduates, and those wishing to gain more studio experience in their field.

Production will occur within Hampshire College's Animation Incubator Studio, housed in Adele Simmons Hall on the Hampshire College campus.

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

Applications are open to join Bassam’s team this summer for the ‘Tube’ production, 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 Tuesday May 31, 2011 through Friday August 26, 2011. Applications are due (via email) no later than Monday May 16, 2011 at 5pm (EDT). We understand that this is short lead time for those needing to make 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 global team using our web-based project management software, SVN, and IRC.

Please read *carefully* the open positions announcement and FAQ! Have more questions?

  1. This looks very tempting. I'm keen on the animator's position for Tube.

    However, three months unpaid work really doesn't seem feasible for someone overseas - with no expenses or guaranteed accommodation on offer I think sadly I'll have to give it a miss.

    Hi, i'm very interesting in this article , but i live in spain, there are any posibilities to get a chance with this project?, and i'm seventeen years old, but i will achieve the eighteen in june is that a problem?.

  3. good point from Chris, shame i had to get the cheap 10gb internet, so the remote internship is also out of the question.

  4. It is tempting for the online internship.
    However a generalist, I'm not sure what they mean precisely.
    It seems that everyone is specialized to an extent.

  5. Tube or Not Tube, That is the question! Or is it what's rotten in Denmark?
    Where is Hampshire College?
