Internships are a touchy subject. For some people, unpaid internships are a deal breaker. For others, it's how you get your foot in the door. That said, there are some objective things to consider. Internships are a two way street. Think of them as a trade-off – you help, you learn. Not you stay back until 9pm helping to paint the studio office. You shouldn't be ther...

They now want to find out more about you, what you're passionate about, what you do in your free time and to see that you're normal. After all, you'll be spending quite a bit of time with them and your co-workers so yo...

You are a creative, so get creative with how you go about applying for jobs! Personalise your application specific to the studio you are applying to and show them you're keen to work for them and have great attention to the details.

Definitely not your normal animals-dressed-as-humans photoshoot! Miguel Vallinas is one kooky guy, imagining what an animal would wear if it dressed in human clothes. Do you have a favourite? That peacock is one prissy lady.  ...
