Calling all students (18+), recent graduates, and professionals wanting to ply their 3D skills in libre software:

Join Bassam and the URCHN crew this summer on the Tube Open Movie production, hosted by the Bit Films animation incubator at Hampshire College, Massachusetts. Helmed by Chris Perry, formerly of Pixar and Rhythm & Hues, the program draws together a lot of talent, so although the internships are unpaid, it promises to be a very stimulating and fruitful space. These positions offer an opportunity to improve your skills, develop your reel, and make useful contacts in the industry. There is a possibility that housing can be offered.

The official internship period runs from Monday June 4, 2012 through Friday August 31, 2012. Applications are due (via email) no later than Thursday May 17, 2012 at 5pm (EDT). We understand that this may be short lead time for those needing to make visa and travel arrangements. Because the project is ongoing, the internship period is flexible; if in doubt, apply!

Although it may not provide as immersive an experience, we are open to considering very strong applicants to a remote internship. Remote interns would join the already global team using web-based project management software, SVN, video calls and IRC.

Please read carefully the open positions announcement and FAQ! Have more questions? Email us:
