Position Summary

Pixar offers an exciting internship program intended to give students valuable “hands on” experience and exposure to our unique production environment.

In addition to the hands on experience they’ll get in making a documentary, students will get a detailed inside look at the workings of all the various departments of Pixar and how Pixar movies are made.


The student will leave the project with an understanding of the production of multiple documentary projects.
