We would like to find exceptional Animators of all levels to add to our expanding team.

We’re a Maya based studio with an Xsens motion capture suit including finger and facial capture. Mocap and hand keyed animation are both important bits, ideally with real time experience.

We work with a number of superb clients on some great projects. As a Digi Monster we will need you to be a flexible character and a self starter who is able to communicate well directly with our clients if needed.

We are based in and around Leamington Spa UK (30 minutes drive from Birmingham, and a 90 minute train journey from central London). Due to Covid we are working from home so this role is also home based. It would be ideal if you can be on site with us when normal life returns, but not a deal breaker. 

The length of the contract is up for negotiation as is the salary depending on your skills and experience. In addition to your CV, you must provide a showreel, portfolio or work samples to go any further.
