    Lighting TD Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in El Segundo, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in El Segundo, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Rhythm & Hues Studios in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    Interviewing was usually painless and I never felt like I was being grilled or intentionally stressed by the interviewers. The questions posed were on par and appropriate in how the information related to the job in question. Even during my first interview with Rhythm & Hues, I felt like I was part of the family.

    Interview Questions
    • A few questions required a deep understanding of pipeline related issues and I feel that they were posed appropriately. I felt that the more difficult questions were valuable to them in gauging whether I had the aptitude to work in the more technical or artistic departments. Again, I never had the impression that the questions posed were with malicious intent.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Simple. We were able to quickly arrive at an agreement with no more than 2 short phone conversations or emails. They are VERY honest about their financial situation and ability or inability to meet satisfactory financial compensation.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Rhythm & Hues Studios in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview was fairly simple and straightforward as I had worked there before as a Junior FX TD. Both interviews were not as complicated as for other studios. They mainly ask you questions about what is on your demo reel.

    For the first time as a Junior, none. For the second time, you give them a number and they try to match it. They will also provide you with relocation and great health benefits.

    Don't forget to ask for benefits in your deal or they will not include it. A co-worker of mine was able to get all his benefits included in his package and I did not because I didn't think to ask. Just assumed it was included.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Rhythm & Hues Studios in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    it's quite straight forward. And I believe that everyone gets a fair shot, you need to be good at the job.
    - you are required to do the animation test
    - provided both your test and reel are found to be satisfactory, you'll receive a telephone interview call (out of the blue)
    - you are invited over to their studio for a studio test
    - The test files will be evaluated by rhythm and hues head office
    - If you pass the tests, you'll get the apprenticeship(3 Months)

    To get the job.
    - You need to be consistent with work during your apprenticeship.
    - 3 months of consistency will fetch you the job

    Overall its a great place to work. I'm not sure about how things have changed after it being acquired by Parana.

    • The most difficult thing here would be even clearing out to stage 1. Once you get this far, it's not too hard.   Answer Question
