About the company

Can I visit the Illumination Mac Guff facility?

Due to confidentiality issues, we are not offering tours of our studio.

I have a movie idea, can I submit it to you?

We do not read or consider any unsolicited creative ideas sent to us. We are focused on our internally developed projects and it is our policy, based on legal and other considerations, that nobody working at Illumination Mac Guff is to look at any external submissions.

As a service provider, can we offer our services in VFX, Animation, VisDev, etc... ?

Illumination Mac Guff doesn’t work with any service provider for the production of its films. All the departments are in-house.

Can I become a minion?

You can try… but no.

How should I apply for a position at Illumination Mac Guff?

When you see a position of interest on our website under the careers tab, please click on the specific position.

What are the criteria for the selection of interns?

The recruitment process is the same as for a position, however we prefer internships to be longer than 2 month so that the intern can have a better understanding of the production process and tools.

If you are applying for an open position, it takes about 3 weeks to process your application. Regarding speculative applications, the duration will depend on the recruitment needs of the department concerned.

Will I hear from you after I apply?


Once you’ve submitted your application form, you will receive a confirmation email. Due to the number of submissions, it can takes time to review all of them. We’re not able to contact people individually with specific feedback. We will contact you if a position match your profile.

How often should I apply?

We recommend every 6 months, unless there is a change in your contact details, a significantly updated reel or if you’re interested to apply for a different position.

If I am not authorized to work in France, can I still apply at Illumination Mac Guff?

Illumination Mac Guff is interested to hire from around the globe. However, the process for obtaining work visas is complicated and can take a lot of time, therefore we will be able to apply for visas on a case-by-case basis only.

There are no regulatory restrictions for citizens from the European states and Schengen countries. We recommend you get familiar about visas before applying.

I am an actor and wish to be part of your cast, can I apply?

Illumination Mac Guff doesn’t record the voices in Paris but they are recorded in the United States. Illumination Entertainment handles that part of the production process. Concerning French dubbing, Universal Pictures France, as the distributor, will be in charge of it.

And how about music?
