Tshimologong Innovation Precincts – Digital Content Hub Call for Visual Development Artists, Storyboard Artists and Graphic Designers for 2019 Internship


Introduction

One of the major constraints of developing world-class digital content in South Africa, and elsewhere in Africa, is a shortage of people with specialized skills. And, in today’s tight job market, internships have rapidly become a prerequisite for many full-time positions.

So Tshimologong Digital Content HUB and Le Gobelins have developed a Digital Skills Development Programme called the “Skills Pipeline”, which is a 7-month paid team internship for 20 candidates. This phase of the programme will offer experiential learning in visual development and storyboarding focused on gaming and animation, and mentored by Le Gobelins graduates. It begins on 7 January 2019 and will end on 30 August 2019.
