ABI Profile: Shimmy
My internship was at a production company called Shape Shifter in Sydney. They are a production company that specialises in animation and have done works for BBC, Cartoon Networks etc.
My main task was to help them with social media strategy and research information about preparing for their EPK.
"I have made great connections through this internship that I really treasure. Adam, who was responsible for my internship has still been incredibly helpful after I finished my internship, mentoring me through my upcoming projects."

"It's amazing to have someone who is well experienced in the industry provide you advice with situations that you don't know how to handle or navigate yet. I think that's definitely one of the things I am most happy about from the internship."
"Art Bound Initiative helped me to get prepared for the professional world. The workshop helped me to make my portfolio and resume look more professional and presentable. I also appreciated the zoom call meetings with industry professionals that gave us opportunities to get insight about the industry and ask questions directly."

"I am also happy that ArtBound Initiative got me in touch with Shape Shifter Studio. Even though they weren't as big as companies I initially wanted, because it was a small company there were more hands on experiences and closer relationship built."
