Archie Flower

2022 Production Training Scheme Alumni

Hi Archie! What is your background, what were you doing before joining the Production Training Scheme?

Before joining the Production Training Scheme I was a social media video editor for a local company.

Why did you decide to apply for the programme?

I saw this programme as a huge opportunity for me getting into the VFX industry.

How would you describe the programme in three words?

Interesting, Fun, Informative.

What is your favourite memory during the programme?

Meeting everyone who shares the same interests as me.

What did you enjoy most about the work you were tasked with during the programme?

The work given really helped in learning everything as it gave us a chance to do the work ourselves and learn practically.

What was the most challenging task you faced in the programme and how did you tackle it?

I didn’t find any tasks too challenging.

One thing you learnt about yourself while doing the programme?

I learnt that I can trust myself in finishing a task by myself and don’t always need support from others.

How did your trainers and mentors support your learning and growth?

Both Ash and Sophie, sponsors of DNEG’s Production Training Scheme, were always there to support me with any questions or queries I had regarding the training as a whole or anything about the job/company.

What are your future ambitions for your career in Production?

I would like to build up within the new role I have been given and gain experience within a specific part of the VFX pipeline.

What would be your advice to future Production trainees?

Be confident in yourself and your own abilities. The training provided within this scheme will guide you through well enough that you will be able to learn the role being taught with no problems or issues.

Last question! Finish this sentence: DNEG is…

a really fun and friendly place to work.
