Today I sent out an email to the studio we’ve been looking at in London. Here’s what I sent:
I’m Finley, an animation student at Norwich University of the Arts. I’m getting in touch regarding a group project on industry roles and practices. A couple of us here follow your studio Instagram and really love your house style, so we were hoping you could tell us a little bit about the company?
How long has the studio been on the scene? Does the collaboration between confounders predate the company?
How soon did the studio attract upmarket clients like Facebook and IBM?
Was there a steady growth of employees or was there a sudden turning point?
What are the standard studio animation processes? Are you an entirely digital studio and if so, is After Effects your only animating software?
There are a few other questions we would like to ask that are more role specific, is there a chance you could recommend some employees to talk to? The roles we are interested in are:
I understand youre quite a streamlined studio so I’ll be interested to hear weather those roles are a bit blurred or even relevant to your pipeline.
Thank you very much for your time, I hope we’re not asking too much. We look forward to hearing back from you!
