A look back at our VFX Production Training Scheme

Three months of on-the-job training for our cohort of trainees

DNEG’s Production Training Scheme: the perfect opportunity to kick-start your career in Production!

DNEG’s Production Training Scheme in London recently wrapped! Over a period of three months, over twenty Production trainees took part in our bespoke training programme, gaining first-hand, real-world experience by working alongside DNEG’s Production team on shows currently in production at our studio in London.

Sharing what we know is really important for us, especially when it comes to the next generation of talent. The Production Training Scheme is one of DNEG’s many career entry route programmes designed to help talented individuals kick-start their careers, grow as professionals and fulfil their potential, all within a collaborative, supportive, and inspiring environment.

At DNEG we welcome talent from all walks of life: not everyone has a background in VFX and Animation when they join our studio. Of course certain roles require a strong technical skill set, but personal experience and the right attitude can also make a big difference and work in your favour as you work towards landing the job of your dreams.

Commenting on the Production Training Scheme, Ashleigh Yu, DNEG Production Manager and sponsor of DNEG’s Production Training Scheme, says:

“When we first started talking about the Production Training Scheme, it was really important for us to think outside the box in terms of candidates we would hire. We were keen to give everyone a chance regardless of their background. I am so proud of our first cohort: everyone gave their best, building on their skills and experience, supporting one another. We saw a lot of trainees flourish within their initial three month contract! Some of them have now jumped right into show life and are doing very well amongst their new Production team colleagues.”
