DNEG x Greenlight North America

Your VFX career starts here!

Be part of the next generation of VFX artists by joining DNEG’s Greenlight Training program in North America. This industry-leading program supports high calibre graduates, and junior professionals looking for their first step into the VFX industry, as they immerse themselves into our academy award-winning studio.

Trainees will gain exposure to a live production environment through intensive dedicated training, facilitated classroom training, project work and mentorship from our department leads, supervisors, and internal trainers. You will also join our community of Greenlighters and have the opportunity to make new friends, and meet and network with our talented crew.

A 12-week program

This 12-week Greenlight program begins with an intensive onboarding scheme, where we will guide you through the DNEG pipeline, best practices, and our proprietary tooling. You’ll have the opportunity to apply your learning with support from DNEG’s own experts and training team, before taking your next step into the world of real production.

Following a successful onboarding phase, you will have the opportunity to be placed right in the heart of a real DNEG production, and spend the remaining program time contributing to tasks on film or TV projects in production at DNEG, all while under the continued mentorship of DNEG experienced artists, production, and training. Each step of the way you will receive the feedback needed for you to successfully contribute to world-class visual effects.
