I’m hiring again! This time it’s not for a big commercial project – it’s for my next short film. I have actually never hired anyone to help with my own animation so I’m really excited about this, it will be a lot of fun to work on.
I’m gonna need 2 awesome character animators and a rigging expert/animator. You need to be a total pro at Maya.
For animation I need people with experience doing acting animation and lipsynch with a really fast turnaround. It helps if you have worked within tight deadlines and you can handle a large volume of stuff to get through.
Like everything else I’ve done – this will be rendered in the software and my goal more broadly with 3d is to keep everything lightweight and simple to work on. For rigging, I need someone who can rig a large variety of different characters and keep it economical and changeable. It is a big help if you can draw or know how to make different expressions for your rigs.
Again – this is not a giant commercial project, I’m pulling a lot of favours with it, but there is a budget and you will get paid. It will take about 3 months (May, June, July 2010).
It helps if you are in Berlin!
