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.


Character Layout and Cleanup Artist




We are looking for an experienced Character Layout Artist and Cleanup Artist. They will work on character layout before moving onto cleanup.

We are looking for Character Layout Artists who can, using the storyboard and character model sheets, create key images for each shot to be passed on to the Animators. They will need very good drawing skills and be able to match the character design set out in the model sheets. Experience of Adobe Photoshop is essential and Toon Boom Harmony would be useful.

The Cleanup Artist will need to create very neat line drawings over the animation. They will be creating the final images we see on-screen and it is therefore very important that the clean up artist is able to draw very smooth and neat lines. They should also have experience in animation to be able to interpret the rough animation. Knowledge of Toon Boom Harmony would be useful but not essential.
