We are looking for crew for a new production (beginning early 2020, dates TBC). The project will be in a realistic anime-inspired Sci-Fi style, similar to anime series such as Netflix’s Castlevania. The story and visual tone will be serious and dark and therefore we are looking for candidates with strong drawing skills able to quickly draw people in a detailed, realistic yet dynamic style. The story and visuals will be violent, bordering on horror, so please do not apply if this is not your thing.

We will be running a tight schedule and it is essential for all who work on this project to not only have great artistic skills but also be able to keep to a schedule, take artistic direction and above all, be co-operative team players.

All roles must be based in-house in our Bristol-based studio. This is a pilot project, which if green-lit has the potential to be extended further.


Traditional 2D Animator


Varied – Lead, Mid and Junior


This project will be traditionally animated albeit in a limited style akin to Japanese anime series production with many shots shot on 3s and 4s. There will however, be some more fluid animation in key action shots. As always with this project, we are looking for Animators who can work in a detailed realistic style and work quickly and keep to a schedule. The Animators will be responsible for their own inbetweening. Experience of Toon Boom Harmony would be useful but not essential.
