Singapore Polytechnic visits us again!

Sparky Animation recently hosted students undertaking their Diploma in Digital Animation in SP, during their industrial visit. This group of 60 students had a sneak peak of what it really means to have a career in animation.

 The following feedback was received by some of the students:

Would you consider applying for a job at Sparky Animation and why?

Shahirah Afiqah says, “Yes. The staff seem helpful and the studio is dedicated to producing the highest quality/standards they are capable of.”

Muhd Sufyan says, “Yes. After hearing about Sparky’s growth and goals, I am convinced that it is a good company that many should strive for.”

Masagos says, “Yes, I feel that it could provide for my needs as it is sufficient for me to advance in my career.”

Tan Tian Lin Kaylee says, “Yes I might consider, as Sparky Animation is one of the more well-known local companies in Singapore.”

Vera Fonseka says, “Yes. The staff seem very friendly and I feel if I work at Sparky, I will get to learn a lot of new things that aren’t taught in school.”

Did this tour change your understanding of working life in the animation industry? What are the main differences from your previous understanding or expectations?

Denise Ng says,  ”Yes it has changed my understanding as I now know more about the industry and that it is a lot more than what I had imagined it to be.”

Ummi Hanik says, “Yes it did. I was expecting the job to be super strict and not much fun but after the tour, well, everything changed!”

Tessa Soh says, “Yes. I thought the animation/modeling/rigging would be so advanced that we wouldn’t even be able to understand any of it, but it was actually understandable!”

Neo Shi Jie says, “Yes, especially the difficulty between the tasks at a job and school. Also, the animation industry does not solely depend on animation itself but also on merchandising.”

Anthea Ko says, “Yes, it gave me a better understanding of the roles in the industry and the pipelines needed. Now I know which department does what and it will help me to make a more informed choice in the future.”

Thanks guys for the wonderful experience!
