We are recruiting a 3D Animator/Artist
We are looking for a mid to senior level Animator/Artist. We need animators with particular expertise in lifelike human animations. It's important that you can capture subtle nuances in a person's movement and gestures, from the hips to the fingertips. The candidate should also be skilled with facial and lip sync animation. Experience with motion capture is a plus.
We will also want you to create some of the characters you animate. Realistic people from around the world with culture specific clothing. Polygon smart characters for the Unity engine, and Zbrush sculpted characters for rendered cinematics.
You may also be asked to create props and environments. Environments with strong aesthetic layouts and good palette choices.
Your work should show inspired design choices. Does the clothing tell us something about the character? Is there a visual cue in the environment that shows how hot the noon sun is? Does the idle animation reflect the characters personality or environment? Please submit a link to your online portfolio. This position is full time and is on-site at our corporate headquarters in Los Angeles, CA.
This position requires US Citizenship for government clearance eligibility.
