In our process of looking for new interns we do require an in-person meeting. It is a great way to assess if our studio and the intern in question are compatible. Tess came with a stellar recommendation from her professor and my friend Morgan Miller which alone could have handed her the internship, but we scheduled the meeting nevertheless, just to make sure the studio was the right fit for her.
Tess’ portfolio contained a sample of 3D work which we found intriguiging and at the interview she impressed us as being shy and daring at the same time. She has powerful fire under that calm, composed surface, and you can catch a gleam of it if you ask a right question. When she expressed an interest to be an indepepdent artist we knew the compatibility was established.
As an intern Tess had a boundless enthusiasm for practical work (she never stopped working even during this video interview!) and she loved and excelled at compositing in After Effects. She was wonderful to work with and we were sad when her internship ended.
On Tess’ last day I asked her a few questions and recorded her answers. Here’s the video of this interview:
