DHX Animation Internship
Thank you for taking time to review my internship application. My name is Carlo Puche. I am a first year, and candidate for graduation, at Capilano University’s 2D Animation & Visual Development Program in the School of Motion Picture Arts in 2019.
Our Program Co-ordinator Don Perro informed us of the internship opportunity that your studio is offering. I am seeking opportunities to expand my animation skills under professional supervision, while contributing my skills to DHX Studios’ productions. I would be compelled to join a studio that has such a diverse portfolio such as My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, Transformers: Rescue Bots and Mega Man, and a studio that values the work and well-being of their employees. I have been fortunate to have had the tour into the Vancouver studio earlier in the year, and had found your workspace accommodating.
I perform well in both teams and under self-guided conditions. With a keen eye for technical and creative problem solving, I am often sought out by my classmates for questions and critiques for their projects. At the same time, I value and know how to take criticism for my work. I take notes and keep an open mind to critiques, knowing that they are meant to improve my work and help me grow to be a better animator and artist. These are skills that I have picked up from studying architecture in BCIT, having worked in a professional setting in Studio One, and directing the choir in my parish of St. Monica. Having grown up in multiple settings, particularly Hong Kong and the Philippines, I adapt quickly in new cultural settings and environments.
Having worked as an Architectural Technician in Studio One, I know the stresses and realities of working on large scale and even million-dollar projects (churches, multi-residential homes, office spaces). These projects always require communication, collaboration, being a team-player, and attention to detail. As an animation intern, I am confident that these are traits that I will carry over to DHX Studios.
My résumé is downloadable via the link below, and the rest of my work is entailed in my website. I look forward to talking to you about contributing to DHX Studios.
