Meet Our New Artists Joining Us in Fiji

B u l a!

If you haven’t heard by now, our Santa Monica and Melbourne studios are meeting sorta (kinda) in the middle for our semi-annual company trip   in November to Fiji!

The getaway involves a whole lotta poolside lounging, ocean swims, one too many pina coladas, and some much needed R&R!

On top of unwinding in paradise, we’ll be doing loads of  team building and brainstorming to draw inspiration and enhance productivity.  Our team is quite the worldly bunch: we’ve got artists, entrepreneurs, coders, and designers from all different parts of the globe working together at both our studios, and we wouldn’t have it any other way! And we’re always looking for the most talented people to join our growing crew. So, we extended our Fiji invite to all new Lumanites! All you have to do is apply to one of our open positions on our careers page – and get hired of course!

We’re happy to announce that we’ve had some pretty awesome new artists take us up on our offer, and they’ll be joining us in Fiji too!

What are you most excited about for the Fiji trip?

I’m excited about the sun-kissed beaches and the natural beauty that Fiji has to offer.  The best thing is that I’ll get to take my wife to a place that is easily paradise on earth.

What’s the first thing you’ll do when you get to the resort?

Logically, I would say I may need some sleep, but realistically I would be so excited to be in Fiji, that I will not have the ability to do that . I may dive in the pool instead…and sleep there if I must.


Wanna check Fiji off your bucket list? We’ve got more than just artists positions available! All you have to do is apply to any of our open positions, and if you join the crew, you’ll be coming along for the ride!*

*All new hires must work at Luma Pictures for a minimum of 6 weeks to join the crew in Fiji.
