FREEFOLK INTERNSHIP SCHEME - FUTUREFOLK
OUR MISSION WITH FUTUREFOLK IS TO SPOT TALENT FROM ALL DISCIPLINES TO NUTURE THE NEXT GENERATION IN VFX
Futurefolk is an annual competition to win a paid internship in our London studio within our 2D, 3D or Colour departments. In an concerted effort to increase in number of women in the industry, the placement will result in one female and one male winning an internship.
The competition is now open to all VFX students - both pre and post graduate. So whether you’re a budding 3D Supervisor or a superstar comper, you need to compile a 2 minute reel of your best work to be in with a chance of winning a one month paid work placement this summer, working with the team on live projects.
If your work makes the grade you’ll be invited in to meet the Freefolk team and that’ll be your chance to convince them that you’re right person to win an internship place, where you’ll have the chance to be involved in both TV and commercial projects.
Our inaugual competition winner in 2018 Emily Hoi Ying Fung says this about the internship scheme,
"I learnt about the Freefolk internship through my university, I consider it a crucial stepping stone along my career path into the industry. During my time at the studio, I developed essential communication skills and an appreciation of a collaborative workplace environment.
My time at Freefolk was highly enjoyable, alongside the development of these fundamental skills, I was also provided the opportunity to work on a variety of high quality, real-world advertisements.
I would recommend this opportunity to any aspiring VFX artists, hoping to branch into the industry, this experience has given me the confidence in my abilities and has enabled me to pursue a career in CG."

The increasing demand for VFX has created a global shortage of people with the right skills. This sounds like a great opportunity for someone to gain valuable insights of the workings of a busy studio which will really kick-start their career.Neil Hatton, CEO UK Screen Alliance
