Paid, Location and Date?

Super Spline offers paid internships as we believe hard work should be rewarded, and you can’t pay bills with hopes and dreams. It’ll be located at our HQ in Leamington Spa in the heart of the UK. Leamington is a hub of game developers so you’ll likely get to meet devs from big studios like Microsofts Playground, Electric Square, Rebellion, Sumo, Ubisoft and Sega. Housing or relocation assistance is not provided. We are an animation studio so only offer internships in 3D animation, at this stage it will specifically be tailored to animation for video games. The start date is from June/July, but we can be flexible. This will be offered on a three month basis, we hope to extend this period in the future.

Who is eligible for an internship? Are international students eligible?

Anybody is eligible as long as you have a passion for animation and can demonstrate your skills and willingness to pursue a career in animation. A degree in a closely related field or having completed an online animation course is an added bonus. However, as mentioned above, we can not offer working visa’s, so only those eligible to work in the UK can apply.

How should I apply for an internship?

Please submit your CV/résumé and a link to your showreel on vimeo or youtube via an email to Cover letters, videos etc. should outline your motivation for an internship at Super Spline and any work experience you may have. Please also state where you heard about our internships.
