Copernicus is looking for a few Toonboom Animators to fill remaining positions on a new production beginning this month. Previous experience with Toonboom is an asset but not a necessity. This is a new high-quality animated series using a combination of character builds coupled with strong hand drawn posing and traditional animation elements.
Inbetweeners will be responsible for taking the approved poses and providing the breakdown and inbetweens drawings needed to complete the animation at the highest quality possible. The in-house supervisors will train and guide you to meet the standards set by the show runners and to match the specifications and style outlined by the director. You’ll be incorporating all notes from the supervisors, while working collaboratively with other animators.
Requirements: Must have prior 2D character animation experience for television, and/or a demo reel displaying the required skill sets.
Skill Sets: Ability to work under pressure and meet weekly production deadlines. Must have a strong sense of comedic timing and a strong understanding of the animation principles. Must have effective time management skills, a dedicated work ethic and the ability to follow directions. Effective communication skills are essential.
Must be willing to work on-site, here in Halifax, NS.
