Jedi Masters Program


What is the Jedi Masters Program?
The Jedi Masters Program (JuMP) is a paid apprenticeship program at Lucasfilm Singapore, providing in-class training and on-floor mentorship in a real-world production environment for computer graphics artists interested in careers in visual effects and animation.

Who are the instructors?
The instructors and mentors are typically Lucasfilm staff – seasoned industry veterans from both the Singapore studio and our headquarters in California. We sometimes also bring in expert trainers from outside the company.

Is the Jedi Masters Program only open to Singaporeans/Singapore PRs?
The Jedi Masters Program is open to both Singaporeans / Singapore Permanent Residents. However, non Singaporeans are welcome to apply as long as there are no restrictions on their continued residence or employment  in Singapore. Consult the Singapore Ministry of Manpower for more information. Please note that Lucasfilm does not sponsor Pass or Visa applications.

I have not yet graduated from school. Am I eligible to apply to the Jedi Masters Program?
The Jedi Masters Program is designed for recent graduates as well as artists who already have some working experience. If you are currently enrolled in a university or polytechnic, you must complete your studies before applying to the Jedi Masters Program.

However, Lucasfilm Singapore has a variety of internships offered throughout the year which are a great opportunity for students to gain production experience while still in school. For more information, please refer to 'Internships' section

Are apprentices guaranteed a job after completing the Jedi Masters Program?
Following the successful completion of the Jedi Masters Program, apprentices may be offered a position at Lucasfilm Singapore, depending on the hiring needs of the studio at that time.

Is this a paid apprenticeship?
Yes, JuMP apprentices are paid a training stipend.

Do apprentices get a chance to work on real projects?
Yes! This is one of the most unique aspects of the Jedi Masters Program. Under supervision of an experienced mentor, apprentices have the opportunity to work on real projects alongside experienced artists.

I am a Singaporean male and I have not yet completed my National Service. Am I eligible to apply for the Jedi Masters Program?
Males with Singaporean citizenship or Permanent Residency must complete their National Service obligation before applying for the Jedi Masters Program.

If you still have any queries regarding JuMP, please contact us at STGSingSchoolPartnership@lucasfilm.com. We are unable to provide any support for job-related queries; please refer to jobs.lucasfilm.com for job postings.

How long is the internship?
Internships last between 10-20 weeks, depending on the type of IAP offered by your school and our production needs.

Are the internships full-time?
