Launchpad Competition London 2021

Job description

Help find team mates via our discord channel!

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, Framestore will not be able to offer our usual onsite Launchpad Internship program in our London or Montreal offices.

But don't you worry, we are really pleased to announce that we will once again be running the Launchpad Internship Competition! The competition will run during our normal internship window of Monday the 5th of July to Friday the 27th of August 2021 but instead of being based at our studios, we will run the competition entirely remotely and online. The goal is to provide you a unique chance to build your dream team, to collaborate and gain access to Framestore mentorship to create a 30-second film. 

As well as traditional CG/VFX workflows we'd encourage teams to apply who are interested in executing their 30 second short in Unreal Engine. We're expanding our realtime team hugely throughout 2021 so it's a great opportunity to get your foot in the door. You can read more about the team here. 100% of our Real-time interns have gone into full-time employment!
