Tips on Applying



Show us what you can do
Recent graduate or seasoned artist, we would love to see your work. Just remember that we get an awful lot of applications and won’t be able to return any portfolios. So here are a few tips before you send it:

First, make sure it’s your best work, the things you are really proud of.

Include an up-to-date CV and a showreel with a breakdown of what’s on it.

Online is the most accessible format for us. So, if you have your showreel on a website, let us have the link.

If you’re sending a DVD, check that it works, and that it has your contact details on it. So we can get in touch.

Let us know where you’re working and what you’re working on (we know you may not be able to show us anything).

Keep it short and to the point. Two or three minutes are all it takes to show us what you can do.

If you can, tell us how you did it. If you’re a compositor, show us the mattes and passes you used.

FAQs

How do I apply to MPC?
The easiest way is online, although we don’t mind if you prefer to drop your show reel off at one of our offices. Sending it to us digitally, however, is the best way to make sure we get your application. For some further advice on showing us what you have done, take a look at the Tips on Applying.

What’s the best thing about working at MPC?
It has to be the people and, of course, the amazing projects you get to work on. We are very lucky to already have the world-class talent you need to create world-class visual effects.

What’s the interview process like?
First, your work will be reviewed by our heads of department. If we’re actually looking for someone with your skill set to join our team, we will give you a call to find out a little more about you, what you’re looking for, what your availability is and where you are currently working. The next step is a face-to-face interview, normally with a member of the recruitment team and the relevant head of department. We always aim to give you some feedback within the week and, even if we don’t have a role for you right away, we will still stay in touch in case a suitable position comes up.

What can I expect on my first day at MPC?
You can certainly expect to be busy. Like any company, we want you to have as much information about us as possible and there will be lots to learn.

We run our induction sessions on Mondays, so if you join us then you will have a full induction with HR and then your specific teams
