Rhythm & Hues Studios is announcing a Texture Paint Apprentice Program.

The R&H Texture Paint Apprentice Program is designed to give participants the opportunity to gain valuable experience and a chance to work with a talented group of dedicated professionals in a collaborative, energetic environment. This program is designed to identify candidates who may be suitable for entry-level Texture Paint Technical Director positions in our studio. Ideal participants will be recently graduated artists and technical people with superior skills and potential.

While some participants may be extended as long-term freelance artists after evaluation,
employment isn't guaranteed.

The current Apprentice Program will be three weeks in duration consisting of seven days of training, eight days on a simulated production, and will end with an evaluation. Participants will work with our best artists and supervisors to learn how we create images through a combination of formal classroom instruction and informal collaboration.

The current program will start on Monday July 28, 2008 and will end on Friday, August 15, 2008.

Application packages must be submitted or postmarked by Wednesday, July 16, 2008 and should include:

* Cover letter and resume

This sounds like a really interesting opportunity!
Its not appropriate for me where i am now half way through a degree, but i think its great when studios offer internship programs because as a graduate its tough to get past the '2 years experience on feature films' requirement.

Do Rhythm and Hues use texture artist as an entry level job to get to be a matte painter later on? Alternatively, are there any plans to have any specific matte painting internships at any point down the road?
