Email Hello Animation Lovers! Internship season is around the corner so I thought it might be fun to give the readers of Cartoon Brew a sneak peek at my book, How to Get an Animation Internshipwhere I share my knowledge and advice to those interested in pursuing an internship in animation.
My name is Eric Bravo and as a senior at UC Davis about ready to graduate, I decided to stay another year to pursue the entertainment industry and was lucky enough to land three studio internships. In my super senior year, I got to intern at Warner Bros.
I seized the opportunity at Nickelodeon and went from being an intern to a creator and writer of my very own cartoon short, The Outsiders. I also had the opportunity to interview with other amazing companies, such as PixarLucasfilm, and Live Nation.
Having experienced first-hand the lack of information out there on how to gain an animation internship, I started an animation blog The Storyboard Roomwhere I provide advice to college students on pursuing the animation internship.
After being inundated with questions, I decided to write this book to answer the common questions and give my personal advice on landing an animation internship. The book also contains helpful tips and insightful knowledge from recruiters, including what animation studios look for in an intern.
How to Get an Animation Internship also includes all of my resumes and cover letters that got me each and every one of my internships so you can see first-hand what studios look for.
In addition, I provide a resume template to inspire the design of your resume to make it look professional and clean. Below is a brief overview of what I go over in the book. This should start you on the right path to landing an internship at your dream studio.

Apply this to the animation industry. Apply to Entertainment Studios Even though you have your heart set on working in the animation field, as an intern, you have the special power to jump from industry to industry.
If you have been applying to an internship at Pixar or Cartoon Network and have not been accepted, try applying to internships in the music or film industry at Warner Bros. Your current skills and experience might be a better fit for another industry.
Once you have a major studio on your resume, no matter the industry it is, it will open more doors and help you land internships at other major studios, including animation studios.
I used this method.
After my internship at Warner Bros. Records in the music industry, I was able to get interviews at various animation studios just because I had Warner Bros. Eric Bravo at his Nickelodeon internship.
