Internships

Illumination Mac Guff welcomes every year interns in the different departments of the studio.

We follow very closely the different animation schools in order to present the students’ works to our department supervisors and to identify talents corresponding to the studio’s spirit and artistic style.

Our internships aim to train newcomers for a potential hiring, therefore we favor graduating students but we will also take into account non-graduating students.

Applicants should provide a demo-reel or a portfolio showing their school and/or personal works, targeting as much as possible the relevant department where they would like to do their internship (we do not offer generalist internships). Department supervisors will review demo-reels and portfolios and select the applicants for interview.

Regarding summer internships, we recommend that you apply through our website at the beginning of April, to give time to the supervisors to review all the applications.

We will not be able to offer internships to applicants without a valid internship agreement from their school.

To apply, please select the relevant department below and fill in the form. We thank you for your interest!
