Overview

WildBrain is looking for Special Posing Artists to join our Vancouver studio for an exciting, new Peanuts Project! It has not yet been announced but if you want to be part of a team that is pushing creative boundaries, you want to have fun and need some more Snoopy and Charlie Brown in your life, have we got the role for you!  Come talk to us about a project that will have you understanding why ‘happiness is a warm puppy” but will challenge you, engage you and make you laugh!

 

In this role you will be creating and improving poses from the storyboard to make them more interesting and dynamic, and most importantly keeping the drawings "on model". This unique position is perfect for someone who has a keen eye for model, acting, and who enjoys pushing the boundaries of character animation past the limitations of software!

 

These roles are set to begin in Fall 2020.

 

We are currently working virtually because of the Covid-19 pandemic. During this time our hiring teams are ready to support interviews via video conferencing, and we are enabling artists to work from home until the studio can reopen. We’d love to hear from you! #stayhomestaysafe!

Responsibilities

  • Create hand-drawn strong character poses based off storyboards that push the expression, attitude, or perspective
  • Establish poses that will be reused throughout animation
  • Report to the Animation Director, working in collaboration with the animation teams to ensure quality expectations and deadlines are met

Qualifications

  • 4+ years experience as an Animator, Designer or Key Posing Artist on a 2D television series
  • Strong sense of model, acting, and staging, and the ability to create poses which are full of life and have strong lines of action
  • Excellent creative problem-solving skills and a keen eye for detail
  • Ability to take direction well, be adaptable and work collaboratively within a team
  • High level of accountability with strong time management skills

 

Bonus:

  • Experience with traditional hand drawn 2D animation
