Now Hiring: Animator

Job Title: Animator
Job Hours: Full-Time, 45 hours/week
Reports to: Animation Department Lead

Job Summary:
The animation team specializes in 3D character animation in a variety of styles and formats. The animators are also responsible for doing layout, and, as skills allow, to contribute to 2D animation, storyboards, motion graphics, editing, rigging, modeling, FX, and project development. We are a studio that thrives on creative passion, flexibility, strong fundamentals, and a trail-blazing mindset. As a medium-sized studio working on multiple projects simultaneously, we put a high premium not just on talent, but on collegiality and adaptability.

  • Must have experience in 3D computer animation, including extensive experience in Maya
  • Ability to take animation experience/skills and apply it across multiple mediums/formats, even if you have no experience in that medium (if you only want to work in film animation, or game animation, or have no desire to ever animate on an app, then this isn't the studio for you).
  • A solid demo reel showing excellent body mechanics and acting skills
  • Experience with 2D animation, character design, storyboarding, layout, modeling, rigging, lighting, color, texture, compositing and/or motion graphics is a plus.
  • Ability to multi-task, work under pressure, hop from project to project, and meet deadlines required
  • Ability to work in a collaborative environment and to interact positively and successfully with other artists, technical colleagues and directors
  • Excellent self-management and self-discipline, with the ability to take direction and to be a self-starter, depending on the needs of the department
  • Adaptable to new software and specialized production tools created by our programmers
  • Must be flexible. Moonbot Studios is a growing venture working in cutting-edge and highly creative technologies. The Moonbot animation team’s primary role is layout and animation, but an Animator will often wear multiple hats. Our employees approach their jobs in a serious manner but in an environment that is conducive to free expression and creativity.
  • Must be currently legally authorized to work in the United States and willing to relocate to Shreveport, Louisiana.
