Enrich players’ life by creating memorable and meaningful gaming experiences. Ubisoft may have 19,000 employees in offices and studios around the world, but the company began with a family. While working in the agriculture business in the Brittany region of France, Yves Guillemot and his four brothers developed an interest in technology while providing farmers with computer programs to track their goods and sales. It became clear to the brothers that the nascent software industry could become a very different kind of family business.
What is the Film & Television Fellowship?
A six-month, non-exclusive, paid fellowship with the opportunity to learn first hand what goes into taking a project from conception to production. Fellows will have the chance to explore Ubisoft’s extensive library of IP as well as pitch original ideas based in the world, community and culture of video games for possible development. Additionally, participants will take part in a one-on-one mentorship with Ubisoft’s Film & Television leads and meet and learn from experienced entertainment executives across departments.
Who are we looking for?
Two women, non-binary, trans, gender-nonconforming, and gender-variant aspiring screenwriters who are passionate about the film and television industry. The program is open to U.S. residents 18 years or older. TV fellows can have up to and including a staff writers credit. Film fellows are eligible so long as they don’t have a project in development at a major studio or any produced credits.
