Dreamworks Artist Development Program 2018 Seeking Artists

Posted by on August 09, 2018

DreamWorks Animation’s Talent Acquisitions, Artist Management and Diversity & Inclusion teams are collaborating to launch the Artist Development Program, a unique opportunity inclusively targeting underrepresented groups.

DreamWorks Animation is seeking artists for a new Artist Development Program at the studio in Glendale, CA. If you have had limited opportunities to grow your animation experience, if you are re-entering the workforce after an extended period of time off, or have studied Film/Cinema, Animation, Art, or a related focus please submit your application by August 19, 2018. Participants will build upon their current experience in this 12-week program with hands-on training in one of the following production departments: Animation, Character Effects, Character Technical Direction, Lighting, Pre-visualization / Layout, and Surfacing to prepare them for an assignment on an animated film at DreamWorks.
The 12-week program will immerse participants in a full-time production environment where DreamWorks’ artists mentor them to polish their skills to be production ready. Upon completion of the 12 weeks, successful artists will be cast on a production crew.
