The talk we're most excited to attend is at 11am, titled "Is An Apprenticeship Right For Me?" Amy Smith from Framestore & Escapee Garreth Gaydon from The Mill
will offer an overview of the VFX apprenticeship opportunities. What do
they look for in an apprentice? How does recruitment work? And what
should you expect from the scheme?
