Current Intern - Graduate Roto & Paint Artist

I have been working at Industrial Light & Magic for less than a year

Pros

Just Pros! Everyone is friendly, you get actual shots to work on and you will learn a lot.

Cons

There are no Cons, if you can start here at ILM than you are in good hands

Former Intern - Intern

I worked at DNEG for less than a year

Pros

There are so many amazing and talented people at DNEG, every person I met was professional, inspiring, willing to share their experience and knowledge to help me learn and grow as an artist. DNEG... has a database of everyone in the company and what floor, room and desk they work at. This makes it very easy to find the best person in the building to help you with a specific problem and they were always willing to help. The training we received was excellent and frequent.

Cons

The hardware I had access to was quite limiting, however I was able to use other artists faster machines if they were away.

Advice to Management

Before I started I was told that part of the reason I managed to get a spot on the internship is because some of the other applicants were over qualified. Impostor syndrome loomed over me during my... entire internship as a result.
