ICAD internships

Sony Pictures Imageworks (SPI) offers paid internship positions in our Vancouver location. We are currently recruiting for our eight-week summer program that runs from mid-June through mid-August. The summer program will give recent graduates and continuing students entering their final year an opportunity to work with fellow interns while being mentored by seasoned Sony Pictures Imageworks artists. During their time at SPI, they will learn the software and processes used in high-end feature visual effect and animation production while concurrently developing their own artistic skills. ICAD fosters a feeling of real life day-to-day work expectations while supplying a continuous education. Throughout the internship, ICAD Interns are encouraged to keep an open mind to all aspects on the shot pipeline by having various speakers, events and opportunities for the interns to experience.

Students desired

The ICAD program is designed to benefit recent graduates and current students striving for their artistic goals as well as help assist those who are still figuring out what they want to do. ICAD Interns should be "sponges" during their internship, seeking out every opportunity to learn and take advantage of the fully engaged feature production facility at Sony Pictures Imageworks. They should be open-minded, good listeners, and proactive. We encourage all top students to apply for our program. To be considered for the ICAD Program, each applicant is required to have a faculty letter of recommendation sent directly to SPI via e-mail or mail.

Eligibility

Must be eligible to work in Canada. For the duration of your internship, we will require you to provide supporting documentation, which confirms your eligibility to work in Canada. Interns should be students that are currently going into their final year of study or who will be graduating in the Spring of 2017. Interns should be familiar with computers, operating systems, networks, and concepts of 3D graphics. Additionally, in-house computer training coursework using proprietary production software, tools, and methods used in production will be required.
