Double Fine Productions:

Double Fine Productions was founded in July of 2000, in an old, possibly haunted, clog shop in San Francisco. There was a lot of money floating around back then, and a lot of ghosts, and stuff like this happened all the time. The founder, Tim Schafer, created for his previous company (LucasArts) such games as Grim Fandango, Full Throttle, and (half of) Day of the Tentacle. He started Double Fine with a big chunk of the Grim team, and a big chunk of new people. These hardened industry curmudgeons had worked on such world-famous titles as Maximo, Diablo II, Jedi Knight, Starfighter, and a whole bunch of other Star Wars stuff. Thrown into the mix were some skilled animators from Tippett and Pixar, some talented kids fresh out of art school, and some freaky characters who just wandered in off the street that everybody is afraid to ask who they are. Together, they make Double Fine Productions: 35 or so well-groomed individuals, dedicated to making highly original games that are good and that are fun and that you will like; in time, love. The happy people of Double Fine are your friends, and some of the only people in the world you can trust.

Jobs require a demo reel for said job. Apply anytime.

"Even if we don't have any current openings that are right for you right now, if you are interested in working at Double Fine, send in your stuff anyway! We are always interested in making contact with talented and experienced programmers, artists, animators, designers, and production people. Even if you're not looking for work right now, it's good to stay in touch because YOU NEVER KNOW.

I can't guarantee that we will be especially good about responding to each and every email we get. Sometimes we get busy and ignore that mail box for months on end. But don't give up hope. Eventually, the mail server will get full, and we'll need to delete some of the applications, so we'll all get together and read through the resumes in there and make fun of people's spelling errors or read their "Job Objective" statements in sarcastic voices and stuff like that.

But maybe we'll see your samples or your web page and all at once the laughter will stop, and our jaws will drop, and then somebody will say, "Whoa." And then I'll look a them and I'll say, "Are you thinking what I'm thinking?" And then someone will yell, "I'm way ahead of you buddy!" as they pull up in the company bus/monster truck and as we all pile in, somebody shouts out, "LOCK AND LOAD!" And we drive full speed to your house and you come out and say "D-D-D-Double Fine? But--" and we put a finger to your lips and say, "You had us at hello!" And then your parents try to stop us because they don't understand, so we duct tape them to a streetlight and peel out, popping a wheelie all the way down the street while "Sweet Home Alabama" blares out of the radio and then you and I try to say something at the same time because we're both so excited, so then we both shut up so that the other can talk, and then we both say, "No, you go!", but then we both start talking again at the same time, and we have to just laugh until we're crying tears of joy, and we sense in our hearts that we will all be best friends forever and ever, and never think about what or who we were before. We will just enjoy the ever-unfolding kaleidoscope of happiness and discovery and adventure and laughter that lie before us.

And then we pull up to the office and I yell, "Alright, back to work suckers. And no talking!" And weld the door shut with everyone inside as I laugh and laugh and laugh. Oh, the fun."

Entry Level - New Grad
Required Education: High School
Required Experience: Less Than 1 Year
Required Travel: Up to 25%
Relocation Covered: Yes

Description
Worldwide. Position will require relocating.

History owes a debt of gratitude to the men and women who have documented the triumphs and conflicts of the United States Navy. Sailors in the News and Media field are the eyes and ears of the fleet and often the rest of the world. This specialty is an intricate part of the Navyıs delivery of visual, audio and written information, both internally and to the public. Your ability to handle deadlines as well as your ability to communicate ideas creatively, artistically and effectively might make this the perfect career choice for you.

What will you do?

As a videographer with a combat photography unit, you might develop a training video for an Explosive Ordnance Disposal team. As a Photojournalist, your images of a humanitarian-relief operation in a foreign country could open the eyes of the world. Or maybe youıll keep your fellow Sailors informed on whatıs happening in the fleet as a News Anchor for the Navy/Marine Corps News. Then again, maybe youıre technically inclined and are happiest making sure that your ship or unitıs communications equipment has been inspected, repaired and is functioning properly. Regardless of what missions and assignments youıll encounter, your skills of gathering and creatively communicating information will be used on a daily basis. Some other duties you might encounter in the News and Media field include:

Skills and training

On-the-job training in this field is extensive, and there are a number of opportunities for intermediate and advanced schooling in the News and Media disciplines, depending on the career path you choose. Sailors in the News and Media field have access to cutting-edge digital cameras, nonlinear editing systems and computer-based graphics applications. Some training you receive may earn you certification by the Department of Labor as a:

Or your training might prepare you for future careers such as: Educational opportunities
In the News and Media field, you may have an opportunity for continued education through various college and tuition assistance programs. Some of the training received in this field will translate toward semester credit hours for a vocational certificate, as well as a bachelorıs or associateıs degree.

Career outlook
There are many opportunities for individuals to excel in this field, both in and out of the Navy. Your assignments in the News and Media field are similar to those you would find in the civilian sector, with one exception ­ your "beat" may be worldwide. The opportunity to document news almost anywhere in the world is a reality in the Navy, giving Sailors in this field a wide range of real-world experience and a portfolio that canıt be beat.

Requirements
Applicant must be a U.S. Citizen, a high school graduate, less than 35 years of age, and in good health.
