Our internship program is designed to benefit you if you're striving for a specific artistic goal or to give you more ideas and help orient you if you're still figuring out what you want to do as an artistic or technical person. Currently we are emphasizing our eight-week summer program that runs from mid-June through mid-August.

The summer program gives you an opportunity to work with fellow interns while being mentored by seasoned Imageworks' artists. During your time, you will work together with others and concurrently building your own artistic or technical skills. For the first few weeks of the internship you will go through the same training courses a newly hired artist is put through. We encourage you to keep an open mind to all the possible career choices on the shot pipeline by providing various speakers, events, and opportunities for you to experience.
