Editing Internship

Get an opportunity to edit for one of the top animation studios in the business.

Pixar Animation Studios is pleased to continue to offer a paid summer internship for students who are especially interested in editing.   Last summer, one of our students was able to spend a summer working at their facilities, learning about how top quality animation is edited.

The work will consist of editing scenes for projects in development and/or production.   Advanced experience with the Avid Media/Film Composer is required.  

•  The internship period is 12 weeks from June – August.

•  The internship pays $12/hour and does not offer benefits.

•  Pixar will cover the cost of transportation to Emeryville (outside of Berkeley) at the start of the internship, as well as transportation back home at the end of the internship.

•  Pixar will provide housing for you.   You and another intern will share a bedroom.

•  Public transportation is available for commuting the short distance from the provided housing to Pixar.

Students in all divisions of the Cinema-Television School who wish to be considered for the program should have already edited at least one film outside of their own Production I and II assignments (animation students should have edited a film outside of their Production I class).   They should complete the application, attach their personal statement, submit one sample film, put them all in an envelope and deposit that packet in Norman Hollyn's mailbox, outside of Suite 404 Production Division office in the Lucas Building by 5pm on March 22, 2004.   The initial selection of candidates will be made by a panel of USC Cinema-Television faculty in consultation with Pixar Animation Studios.   Final selection will be made solely by Pixar and may require the candidate to submit further editing samples and be interviewed by representatives from Pixar.
