My producer asked me to spread this around.
I'm working at a game studio called DeepBlue Worlds as the Head BG designer which is working on an exciting MMO (massively multiplayer online) videogame for kids, and we're looking for a few committed artists and/or animators who would be interested in interning for us. We're located in Sherman Oaks. The project is a really awesome one, and the work environment is fun and the employees all get along fantastically.
Basically what we need are people to:
- assist animators and artists to prepare artwork/assets for the game
- production assistance would also be asked for
Core abilities needed:
- need to know/use photoshop
- be articulate
- take direction well
- be very organized/disciplined
- be either familiar with Flash or willing to learn (bonus points for already knowing / working in Flash!)
- Integrate art and animation into the game
- Work closely with the team, and supervisors as needed.
In terms of hours, you can work around your school schedule. Minimum no of hours per week: 5-10
The pay will be somewhere from $8 to $12 an hour.
A portfolio of work -- What is really helpful is any samples of DIGITAL artwork of any kind (we had a guy come in with nothing but paintings and paper drawings... we just need samples of art that has utilized a computer at some point, whether it was to draw, ink lines, to shade, clean-up images, or what-have-you) . If you have a deviantart or equivalent site that has art samples, please send us your link!
You must be attending college and live in the Los Angeles area.
When internship begins:
