Leviathan – Intern


Located in Chicago.


If you’re in school about to graduate but feel you have what it takes to start working now, let’s put that theory to the test:  apply to be an intern at Leviathan. We’re looking for top-notch designers, animators, programmers and even producers to help us out in an apprentice capacity. So if you’re handy with the Adobe Suite or an Arduino board, or whether you animate characters or composite them, send us your portfolio and when you’re looking to hook up…maybe you’re one of us.

Current students or recent graduates only:

  • Versatile designers and animators:  illustration, type, graphic design, motion graphics, characters
  • Versatile 3D artists:  modelers, animators, lighters (Maya preferred, Cinema 4D considered)
  • Versatile compositors:  handy with Nuke and After Effects
  • Creative Engineers:  feel comfy with Touch Designer, C++, OpenGL, Maya scripting, Arduino boards
  • Producer assistants:  well-written, well-spoken, organized folks who have experience with production & post-production

The Reel FX Apprenticeship Program, known as Reel FX University (RFXU),
offers selected participants the chance of a lifetime:
the opportunity to gain insight and real-world experience in their chosen career paths by working hands-on for a respected, award-winning studio. Reel FX University’s Apprenticeship Programs are six-month long, paid Apprenticeships that are available twice each year (summer/winter).
•Summer/Winter term Apprenticeships are full-time commitments (40 hours per week) for six months working on-site at either Reel FX Santa Monica or Reel FX Dallas.
•While this is a paid Apprenticeship, RFXU Apprentices are responsible for their own housing and transportation.
•Apprentices are provided with access to the facility and are given a login, workspace, and email account. Apprentices will be provided with a computer workstation and access to all applicable production tools and software.
•Each Apprentice experiences real-time, hands-on opportunities to interact with ReelFX creative and production professionals across all levels and disciplines within the company.
•Apprentices get a first-hand experience of the production pipeline and the processes of digital animation and effects for live-action and CG features, commercials, special attractions and interactive work.
•Reel FX matches the skills and interests of the Apprentice with the best-suited activities in the studio, structuring an appropriate Apprenticeship for each individual.
•Every effort will be made to answer questions from our Apprentices and to help them pursue their goals. With the understanding that we are in production, Reel FX is eager to maximize the RFXU Apprenticeship experience.
