Hi all !
I’ve been searching seriously for an internship for summer time… Right now I’ve sent more than 30 letters (replying to opprotunies or just contacting studios). I’ve found only a position in Florida (where I can’t afford going the more). And only four reply to say NO (which is better than no replies)
I was wondering what were my failings. There is something I may not understand. I should be a total noob without knowing that. What’s wrong, I do really need your help! Next summer I won’t get teh same results than this year. I do not understand why my profile does not interest anyone, I want to work… but no!
Here is the letter base letter package I send. Since now I though I could get something…
With reference to _
I am a 19+ years old french guy living in Northern France (Lille). I am a self taught really interested into graphic design, modeling and animation. I got involved really early into those subjects (more seriously for 3-4 years). I even join studio teams during my holydays really young! I recently passed many art schools exams, and I will study at the famous Supinfocom animation school soon (check out www.supinfocom.fr). I wanna be an animator working on film and short film animated projects.
What am I able to?
Technicaly speaking, I am proficient in MAYA (the one I prefer), as well as 3d Studio MAX. My passion lies in character modeling and animation, but I know UV mapping, the basis of lighting, animating, dynamics, shaders, rendering and know well mel/expression coding. I am also skilled in Photoshop, Flash, Php|MySQL and any others. I am stronger in character modeling and I want to imporve my skills in character animation. I attended a character animation lecture by Kyle Balda (Pixar animator met at Anima Brusells) and it has really motivated me!
Otherwise, I am also quite creative and still seeking for my style. I tend to want loking at too much things at the same time, I have give more attention in one subject to work better in that direction then… Today, I am sure taht it is in animation I want to envolve
Working with you…
I would be really proud to join your team, working on your projects! I am enthusiastic and really motivated as you can easly spot. Someone who works well, no… who works better in a group/team, willing to share with others, making something interesting. And you know for the student I am, going abroab, changing horizon, will bring me a lot too. I want to learn more and more by you, and enhance my english (I love speaking english) too. I am looking to work in a creative, highly energetic environment, and believe that your stuidos offer exactly that!
