Position: Lead Animators

We’re looking for 2D Lead Animators. Lead Animators will ideally be open to working with frame-by-frame and rig-based animation, as the show will have both components. Each Lead will have a team of animators they’re responsible for managing. They will need to give technical reviews and assistance, and help the show’s Director with handouts. Along with the Producers and Production Manager, you would be responsible for making sure your team hits its deadlines.

Due to Covid-19, we’re gearing up for all crew to have the option to work remotely for the entire duration of the project.

For those who would prefer to work in a studio environment, once Covid-19 settles down, we likely will reopen the studio in Woy Woy, on the NSW Central Coast. The terms of your contract would remain the same regardless. This is a contract position, with a set weekly wage.

Dates: late July 2020 – late April 2021

Ideally, you would:
