What TTF Apprentices can expect:
Apprenticeships are a full-time (40 hours per week) commitment of (3) months on-site at The Third Floor’s LA location.
While this is a paid apprenticeship TTF Apprentices are responsible for their own housing and transportation.
Apprentices are welcomed into the facility and provided with access to the facility, given a login, workspace, and an email account. Apprentices will be provided with a computer workstation and access to all applicable production tools and software.
A real-time, hands-on experience: An opportunity to interact with TTF creative professionals at all levels and from diverse disciplines within the company.
First-hand experience of the production pipeline and processes of PreVis, PostVis and TechVis work.
We match the skills and interests of the apprentice with the best suited activities in the studio, and structure an appropriate apprenticeship for each individual.
Every effort will be made to answer questions from our apprentices and help them to pursue their goals. With the understanding that we are in production, The Third Floor is eager to maximize the TTF Apprenticeship experience.
What we expect from our TTF Apprentices:
Apprentices must understand that The Third Floor is an operating fast paced production studio engaged in the creation of digital assets for feature films, commercials and other creative projects.
Apprentices should be flexible, open, overtly proactive and willing to seek out opportunities as they arise.
Apprentices need to be sensitive to the time constraints of employees.
Apprentices must sign a standard nondisclosure agreement and adhere to all The Third Floors policies
