Maybe wining and dining CBS is what's been taking up Rob's time. ;)

But seriously, it was nice to post in FB for all my AE colleagues something that shows "HEY! It's still out there! SEE? Really, it's rilly rilly out there.....".

Are folks certain the article/inquiry is legit? As (accurately) noted in the article comments, providing a gmail-domain email address doesn't really enhance the overall credibility. There are some fairly important trademark citations absent from the article that absolutely should be there (and whose omission are extremely improbable in a legit release), and the way the article cites CBS (as opposed to a production company) is quite odd, as are certain other irregularities (no EEOC boilerplate in a hiring mention, etc).

They're more than likely going in house for this, make sense, short production schedules, more control, faster turnaround.

Even so, CBS wouldn't likely skip identifying all the trademarks mentioned (incl. their own), would necessarily refer to themselves as "CBS Corporation"/"CBS Corp." not just "CBS", and so forth. Corporation legal departments are extremely anal retentive about citing all registered trademark ownerships mentioned (because the law demands just that). The release's lack of _any_ trademark citations is very strange, and there are other oddities equally as questionable present.

I suggest anyone interested in applying first reach out and contact CBS and ask them for a @CBS.com email address where to submit stuff. Phishing emails have become shockingly detailed and legitimate-looking in many cases of late, so before sending anyone a bunch of your PII and/or content, it's definitely worth ensuring the request and contact address are both legitimate.

Dont fall for this people.....

First they watch your demo reel, scan your resume for biographical info (using your actual name to develop a false rapport with you)....then its "come down to the studio"..... next thing you know your slaving away in front of a computer on a reboot of an old scifi series in virtual thralldom, small pay cheque and a complete lack of tan.

These people are literally stealing your talent and identity as an artist and compensating you with mere money.

Yeah that was sad. It happened about 50 miles south of me near Lockhart, Tx. 16 people died. Hot air balloons are usually safe but if it's too windy and power lines are nearby then watch out. I will not fly in anything that has little to no control over it's flight.

Maybe efficiency was the wrong word. How about regularity vs irregularity in spelling.

Sometimes they way they spell words in England looks funny to us in the US and vice versa.

There's a flip-side to that coin, do you believe everything on internet? Myself I don't see this as something negative, rather poor attempt to hire people, why not use agency HR people but hire through one of the employees who seems that created the ad himself(copyrights missing and other odd things pointed).

I'm not saying it's not legit, it just look unprofessional, that's all.

I can't judge. I've been freelancing for nearly six years now and I consider the traditional HR process to be full of shite, the bane of effective hiring, and something I shall cheerfully drink a toast over the grave of.

I land gigs through making an end run around that rat race, by discovering the real belly buttons to push in a target industry and getting the right person to give me a chance to show them what I can do.

In my (admittedly entirely personal) perspective this opportunity came in exactly the right form.

It seems an odd way to hire people to me... but I dont know how things work out there. With as many lightwave artists that are looking for work I cant imagine that this was the best way to go about finding people. Its almost like an open casting call. Good luck with that! Seems to me they could have much easier gotten to the creme da la creme of qualified LW users without having to go through thousands of online application first. This smelled more like PR from the start to me... Just a way of saying LW is being used on this show. Apply here, but all positions are already filled ;)

I don't agree, so let's agree to disagree.
We've placed adverts on forums before, and got the best candidates from those... also advertised in 3dWorld and had useless candidates... OH, and let me finally add as I've just remembered. We've hired through agencies before only to find that the applicant didn't even turn up, and the agency rang us saying "the applicant has lied a little on their application form, do you still want to interview them?" Errrm... NO!

In L.A., the vfx industry is much smaller than you might think. Many artists (Lightwave or otherwise) are typically hired based referrals from other artists who are already attached to a production. (Some advice: don't tick people off; an off-hand comment in a forum may follow you into an interview later. :) )

This also means that many of the best artists are probably already working on a production or on staff, so when a new production company needs to ramp up suddenly it can be a great challenge to find artists with a solid production record. This call may seem a little unusual but it's not surprising; the talent pool is thinning so they may be looking for new blood.

(FWIW, I think this call is legit. I'm not attached to Star Trek but I do know some of the people involved who have posted the same job info in other forums.)

Yeah, I can totally see that being the case. That place is crazy. After 23.5 years in the USAF, some of it spent in the Puzzle Palace, followed by nearly 8 years working for a major defense contractor, I saw enough sociopaths inside the Beltway to give me fodder for writing horror movies—really scary ones—for the rest of my life. 8~

I've sent a THIRD email to them and STILL have not heard anything. Am I in the spam folder or do they just not care?

most companies, instead of giving a proper decline, decline from replying.

bad, i know, but most companies are like that. at least over here.

some even put it down in writing. "if you don't hear from us, you did not get the job"


many humans are like that too, > if it doesn't affect me, i don't care <

They did email me back today saying they are just overwhelmed by the response so that's good. I don't mind rejection I just mind not knowing whether I am wasting my time.

the best is to leave a simple initial reply,
"we have received your email and will get back to you shortly"

using autohotkey.com this takes exactly 2 seconds.

Well here is what you can expect unless you have a lot of Star Trek ships and characters on your demo reel. I had neither. :D

Friends, I'm surrounded by very talented people and have had to bring my A game to the party. It's everything you expect it to be, we work 12 hour days but who's complaining, Star trek's neat! I tell you I'm rockin' the lens flares and they're loving it. They have me designing spaceships. I spent the last few days working on this.

It's all about the details, you need them for scale, otherwise you're left with nothing but a box. These are some of the tricks I'm learning from my wonderful colleagues. I so love it here.

I just had a look at your portfolio and it all looks really good. I like all the auto renders, very realistic outside lighting. Nice job.

My friends, I made a terrible mistake, it's awful, I want to die! CBS discovered the Borg image in these forums, I did not know I could not post these images on-line. Two security guards "escorted" me from the building while all the other team members watched me, shaking their heads...calling me awful names. I could hear William Shatner yelling (from a distant office where they keep him) that I'd never work in this town again. I'm shell shocked, a broken man and an international embarrassment. Currently doing non LightWave related jobs on Santa Monica Boulevard to make the airfare home, which is difficult at my age as the competition is fierce out here. I'm finished.

Rates are $5 for the first ten minutes, $20 gets you the full hour and $50 gets you my full attention. I'm wearing the LW t-shirt.

Sorry to hear that mate. I think the problem was you posted the production shots. If you'd only downrezzed the model and simplified the texture, as in the trailer, I think you'd have got away with it.

Well I still haven't heard anything even a rejection email from them. I'm so jealous of guys who merited a rejection email! At least I know they got my communication. Sigh. I suppose winning emmys just doesn't matter in this age of outsourcing.

you could call them.

but companies replying to such an email (or 3) isn't always policy these days.

kinda sucks, imo.

Don you have a lot of film experience, probably more than anyone on here, but I looked at your website and all your youtube videos are nonexistent. Maybe they were pulled for copyright issues. So right now there are no animation examples on your site to look at it.
