Overview

WildBrain is looking for Animators to join our Vancouver studio for new Peanuts Specials!! This is a slate of brand-new specials that will find the Peanuts gang marking Mother’s Day, Earth Day, New Year’s Eve and Back to School. These specials will honour the much loved past Peanuts Specials but will be pushing the creative boundaries of what 2D Harmony animation can do!

 

If you want to have fun and need some more Snoopy, Charlie Brown and the rest of the Peanuts gang 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!

 

These roles are set to begin immediately & are available to remote and freelance candidates and can be international!

 

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!
