Disney Animation seeks jr Pipeline TDs for our Talent Development Program!

Join us for an opportunity to experience the art and technology of animation and be a part of Walt Disney Animation Studios. Our filmmaker-driven studio inspires a multi-discipline team to explore and innovate traditional animation and CG films, shorts and special projects. Opportunities are available for graduates of art and animation, fine art and design, computer graphics, engineering, production and general film studies programs.

The Talent Development Artist Program is available for recent graduates of undergraduate or graduate programs (within three years of graduation date) for a 3 or 6 month paid position at Walt Disney Animation Studios.
