When I entered, I didn’t really know much about The Rookies, to me, it just seemed like some free exposure. I figured if I had already done most of the hard work building up a portfolio of work during University it would be foolish not to enter, so needless to say I wasn’t expecting much to come from that hour of filling out an entry page.
When the initial results came back, I was pretty surprised to see myself in the finalist’s bracket. When the final results came back, I was very pleased to have made it so far even though I didn’t win. Funnily enough, the dude that won was my housemate at the time.
What was even more surprising than making it into the finals, was a month or so later, I got an email from Ninja Theory asking if I would be interested in coming in for an interview for the internship anyway? Of course, I said yes!
