  1. VFX Production Coordinator Interview

    Average Interview
    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Industrial Light & Magic (Vancouver, BC) in Mar 2022

    Interview

    It took me a few weeks before getting into the interview as it has been some conflict with my schedule. They have been very accommodating. I am still in process of getting my second interview. I will send another message here when I finished my second interview.

    The interview I got was with two people. They asked back and forth questions. I would say I got over 10 questions with different scenarios. It is overall concerning your knowledge of different software and how you handle your stress and what you wish to work on as a Coordinator. I would say this interview went very well and I don't think I felt pressured or stressed the entire time. They were very friendly yet professional.
    Interview

    Do you have knowledge of Shotgun (Shotgrid)? How many artists have you been in charge of? What is the biggest challenge you had working in VFX? How do you manage difficult tasks and overcome them? What is your day to day basis as a Coordinator in your past companies? What is the department that you prefer the most or which department or show side would you like to work on? How do you handle the needs of the Client? How do you manage/run a meeting/dailies?
