Job Posting: Animators

Maya Animator

Mid-senior level
3-4+ years production experience with Maya (although we will also take talented applicants who don’t match this criteria)

4-6 months employment

Skillset:

  • Good sense of performance, timing, weight and posing
  • Comfortable working with a small crew (this is not a large studio situation)
  • Can take responsibility for your own work and abilities
  • Able to work independently
  • Comfortable working with character, camera and vehicular animation
  • Experience with lip-sync

Your job will consist of adding subtlety and finish to an already well-developed animatic. The project is performance and dialogue oriented, and based around a live action shoot (4 simultaneous reference cameras). The style is inspired by naturalistic motion (not realism) and it will be your role to bring that style to the character’s performance.

Additionally, there will be some animation that is not character-based, but more general (vehicles, camera, etc), as well as some crowd animation.

We will be assessing applicants on the basis of their character experience and reels.
