    20: Broaching Brexit

    In honour of #BrexitDay on 31st October 2019 (or rather, what was to be Brexit day!) we host a conversation on a subject we usually intentionally dodge: the B-word. Keeping it as politics-free as possible, we discuss how Brexit has affected VFX & Animation studios to date, what it means for people who work in the industry, and how you can best prepare yourself for all outcomes if you want to work in the UK.

    With:
    Amy Smith, Head of Talent, Framestore
    Neil Hatton, CEO, UK Screen Association
    Valentina Pace, Senior HR Advisor, Framestore
    Niki Hunt, HR Manager, Outpost VFX

    18: Meet the Framestore Interns

    Every summer studios across the world offer short work placements for budding VFX artists who aspire to work in the industry. They are an ideal stepping stone from education into industry, and we wanted to hear what it’s actually like. So we chatted to 8 of the interns who spent 8 weeks of their summer at Framestore, to hear their experience of what goes on.
    If you’re thinking of applying for an internship this podcast is essential listening!

    Find out how you can apply for internships on the ACCESS:VFX website:
