Internship / Graduate Programs London, United Kingdom


Position at Industrial Light & Magic

Join our Jedi Academy as a StageCraft Trainee and learn key virtual production skills from our team of experienced artists and technologists. This paid, trainee role will offer an invaluable opportunity to gain hands-on experience with our innovative StageCraft technology while working on live episodic and film projects in London.

ILM StageCraft is an end-to-end virtual production solution that provides a continuous pipeline from initial exploration, scouting, and art direction, through production design via the virtual art department, traditional and technical previsualization, lighting, and of course, production filming itself, with the innovative StageCraft LED volumes. We are looking for apprentices to support all facets of these end-to-end services.

Details for the training paths are still being finalized but will include production, artistic, and technical roles.
