Amy Wright, Animator-


'I am incredibly grateful for having the opportunity to get my foot in the door with the Futurefolk scheme. The work being produced at Freefolk definitely rivals that of the larger VFX houses in London while still having a tight-knit community feel of a smaller studio. I happily returned back to work there as a part-time freelancer after I completed my internship, and everyone was very understanding of my tough schedule alongside my university studies. It would have been significantly more challenging to find a way into the industry without this opportunity, and I would recommend it to anyone who is in a similar position.'

Our inaugural 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."
