“We've been amazed by the
quality of our interns we picked up from the CG Student Awards. During
their time with us, the interns gained the respect of our senior crew
members and made a tremendous contribution to the lighting, fx, rigging,
modelling and texturing of all our current movies” said Karl Wickens,
Co Head of 3D Double Negative.
"I never really thought I
would win the title of Student of the Year. It opened the door for me
into the visual effects industry. After the Internship at Framestore,
they hired me straight away" said Maximilian - Gordon Vogt.
"This opportunity changed
my life and I now find myself rigging on major blockbuster movies, a
dream come true" said Elliot Stammers.
