The talent pool will be narrowed down to 100 candidates. Each of these individuals will submit a 5 minutes video cover letters which will be reviewed by a panel of non-biased, ­third-­­pa­rty ­psychologists & ­recruiters to determine their ability to learn, grow, fit in a group, and challenge their ­expectations and ­motivation to both join our program and work in the Gaming, Animation or VFX industries.
