How to Submit Your Work

What to send and how to send it:

For all departments: Include a resume, a cover letter, and a list of people who will vouch for the quality of your work. Please do not send originals, because you’ll never see them again. Indicate on the outside of the package which department you want to look at your demo.

Massive Crowd Artist

Fax or mail resume "Attention: Massive Crowd Artist"


Shaded and wireframe renders of models - CD, VHS or DVD. Examples of your models being used in animation are a strong bonus. ***


Screen captures of rigs in use, demonstrations of the design choices made, and rendered examples of those rigs being animated - on CD, VHS or DVD. Samples of custom scripts used are helpful. ***


Renders of textured and shaded models - on CD, DVD or VHS. Examples of maps (color, specular, bump, etc.) and layering techniques are helpful.


Video samples that demonstrate 3D camera work, strong composition and cinematography - on DVD or VHS.


Examples of lighting for specific shots, in addition to environment lighting - on DVD or VHS. Supplemental examples of live action cinematography, photography and painting are also welcomed.


Examples of original work that show innovative use of standard tools to create convincing effects within the context of a shot - on DVD or VHS.


Any work that demonstrates the skills you’re currently developing in school - on CD or VHS. Include a cover letter telling us what department you’re applying to work with, along with a printed copy of your current resume. Both the cover letter and the resume should mention the school in which you’re currently enrolled.

*** For the sake of speed, these departments are temporarily also accepting resumes and links to websites via email. If we can’t access your work, or if it’s too big to download quickly, we may still ask you to resubmit your demo via the methods listed above.

Never send your demo as an email attachment. Actually, we’d rather not get any attachments at all. If you’re sending us a link to your site or a copy of your resume, please include it in the body of your email, and not as an attachment.

Please do not call us about your demo reel.

Demos flood in here at an alarming rate, and we can’t respond to every one. We will hold on to the ones we really like. If we think your demo is extra special we’ll keep it in our special place… and when we have a chance to put your skills to good use, we’ll contact you (probably when you least expect it – it’s more fun that way) and ask for more information. Please don’t keep calling to find out if we liked your demo, or we’ll end up spending all day on the phone and won’t have any time left to make cool stuff.

When we look at demos, we’re looking at the talent that’s demonstrated on them, not at the tools that were used. However, experience with some of the tools we use is definitely helpful. Tools we think are really keen include: Lightwave, Maya, Houdini, XSI, ZBrush, Photoshop, Painter, AfterEffects, Shake, and Comotion
