Dear Mr Bacon

Re: Graduate Junior Artist Position

Following our phone conversation yesterday, I am writing to apply for the position of Graduate Junior Artist, as advertised on your website on Friday 31 October.

Gaming is a passion of mine, and I would love the opportunity to get involved in the industry. I recently completed an interactive entertainment course in games programming at QANTM College. Over the course of my studies I have developed skills in texturing, modelling and game mechanics, which I have showcased in the attached showreel. Further examples of my work can be viewed at

My six-month internship with Hot Dog Multimedia gave me invaluable hands-on experience in games development. I honed my animation skills as an assistant animator on a game called Bad Omens, which won the Australian Teachers of Media Film and Television Award for Best Interactive Video Game in 2008.

I currently write a weekly feature on the games industry for Inertia magazine and have experience writing for other publications, which has given me a good all-round knowledge of the industry.

Should you wish to speak with them, my past employers would be happy discuss my qualifications, passion and dedicated work ethic. I am confident that my experience, skills and interest in games would be an asset to your company and I am excited about the opportunity to work for you.

Thank you for taking the time to consider my application and showreel. I look forward to the opportunity to discuss my suitability for the role in an interview.

Yours sincerely
