build your dream. be creative. change the world.

THE MOMENT WE STEP OUT OF HIGH SCHOOL AND INTO THE WORLD, IT GETS REAL. AT ODDFOLK WE ALL EXPERIENCED THAT FEAR OF THE UNKNOWN + DECIDED IT'S TOO DANGEROUS TO GO ALONE.

WELCOME TO YOUR FIRST STEP TOWARD BUILDING A CAREER FILLED WITH PASSION + CREATIVITY.

OUR RESIDENCY PROGRAM EXISTS TO BE A BRIDGE BETWEEN HIGH SCHOOL + THE LIFE YOU WANT TO CREATE. MOST OF YOUR FRIENDS ARE APPLYING TO COLLEGE AND SEEKING THAT ROUTE TO ENRICH THEIR LIVES, BUT SOMETHING MAY BE DIFFERENT ABOUT YOU:

  • DID SCHOOL TEND TO DRAIN YOU OF ALL ENERGY?
  • HAVE YOU ALWAYS FOUND YOURSELF DOODLING? ART SCHOOL SEEMS UNATTAINABLE?
  • LOVE FILMMAKING? DON'T WANT TO GO TO FILM SCHOOL?
  • ARE YOU JUST A DREAMER WITH A TON OF IDEAS?

IF YOU ANSWERED YES TO ONE OR ALL OF THESE QUESTIONS YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT PLACE. 

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT?

OUR PROGRAM CLOSELY RESEMBLES CURRENT WORK-STUDY OPPORTUNITIES THROUGHOUT HIGHER EDUCATION AND IS GEARED TOWARD CREATIVES + DREAMERS.

YOU SPEND 2-3 YEARS WORKING FOR ODDFOLK AS A RESIDENT. OVER THE COURSE OF THIS TIME YOU WORK ON CLIENT WORK, MISCELLANEOUS ODDFOLK PROJECTS, + OUR PERSONAL FAVORITE: YOUR PASSION PROJECT. ALL WHILE GETTING PAID!

WHAT IS A PASSION PROJECT?

WHAT EVER YOUR PASSIONATE ABOUT. IT COULD BE THAT SHORT FILM IDEA YOU HAD BACK IN SOPHOMORE YEAR. OR A SERIES OF PRINTS YOU HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO PRODUCE. THE SKY IS THE LIMIT, YOU JUST NEED TO BE ABLE TO EXPLAIN IT!

I'M IN. HOW DO I BECOME A RESIDENT?
