Want to gain professional experience in a production studio? At Planet Nutshell we’re all about telling great stories and creating animation with impact. We offer seasonal internships for college students and recent college graduates to learn and assist with our production process, from concept and storyboarding to designs and animation.

Under the guidance of our team, you’ll have the opportunity to collaborate with other designers and animators while honing your artistic skill. At the beginning of each internship we work with you to determine your goals and throughout your time with Planet Nutshell you will go through each phase of production: Pitch, script, storyboard, style frames & design, mograph and character animation.

We will give you projects to help you develop and grow your skills in the area you choose via small assignments and working closely with your mentor staff member. (Please note that we are working remotely during the Coronavirus Pandemic.)

What you need:

  • Positive attitude and willingness to learn
  • A willingness to look at your own work with a critical eye, listen to feedback, and make changes accordingly
  • Length of internship and daily hours are negotiable.
  • You must have basic-level skill with After Effects and Adobe Illustrator.

What we offer:

  • Guidance and mentorship to help you build your portfolio and professional work experience.
  • A flexible schedule
  • Current students can earn credit, or if you’re just out of school you are eligible, as well.
  • You will be paid for any client work you do.
  • Fall Internship: September-November
  • Winter Internship: January-March
  • Summer Internship: May-July
