I think you'd get a lot more applications if there were openings for Junior artists... :P Good luck with the headhunt, anyway. ;)

Unannounced Project eyh? So it can't be Crysis 3 since that was announced a long time ago. Could it be World of Atlantis? Or perhaps a movie project? ... I would love to sign up but sadly i have to much responsibilities right now.

I would gladly pack my bags and head down there. Would be alot of fun and a really good experience. Somebody has to watch over Xzero when he starts to work there :P

Hrm, odd that you guys posted this here when it mostly features senior positions. :p Anyway, I like that you post these advertisements on Crymod in addition to constantly searching for talented modders on the forums. :)

Cry-guys, do you have any comments about the "forest" project we have seen for CE3 showcase ? Is it just for techdemo purpose or something more advanced ?

I don't think this thread is the place for that discussion F37.

It's great that they are looking for talent here, but as with all other big studios, the entry requirements are brutal for a newcomer. How many of us here really have 2 years experience in the industry or have shipped a AAA title?

It would be awesome if Crytek had more entry level positions for those people that lack, or have no industry experience, but still have the talent to contribute to a project. Why shouldn't somebody be able to do what they love just because they haven't had the opportunity to get the experience?

I'd love to be a level artist at Crytek. I would love that job with a passion. The requirements for that kind of position though are just demoralizing.

What really is missing from these posts is "industry experience or equivalent". As you know, many modders (including me) came from Crymod having had no industry experience, but a lot of custom work already done in spare time. It shows you're driven, willing to think outside the box, and require no training with the tools. Although you probably won't get a senior position, an intern/junior/regular position isn't out of the question at all.
