Mid-weight Animator at Become UKAward-winning global agency in Surrey is looking for a full time Mid-weight Animator to expand their animation team.
The agency is looking for an ambitious, solution orientated animator, with experience in creating high end motion graphics in 2D and 3D form. This person will also be required to edit footage and create montages from pre-existing footage. The agency is after someone who is able to follow the animation process throughout, from sketch concepts, to storyboarding right through to full animation. Sketching skills and concepting stories is therefore a must.
You will be responsible for turning big data into compelling and impactful animations that tell a clear, understandable story, be it through infographic or photographic styling. The agency wants someone who is engulfed in animation and motion graphics, who is naturally influenced by latest trends to enhance the agency’s animation offering.
You will be part of the Brand, Advertising & Promotions team in the company. The team consists of around 40 people in total, with around 15 being a mix of designers, art directors and production, with the rest being account handlers/management. You will report to a Creative Director and be supported by designers, art workers and account management on all projects.
You will be highly skilled, competent and advanced in After Effect, as well as Photoshop and Illustrator, as you will be required to create assets for animations. Video editing is also required, so using premiere is essential. The agency has vast 3D capabilities, in particular software such as Cinema 4D and Maya, so if you can add and improve on their 3D offering, that would be a big bonus.
Ultimately, they require someone who is savvy at understanding the businesses’ and clients’ needs in delivering quality animations in order to grow the number of animation projects. If this person is successful, the agency will support them build and lead a bigger animation team.
