Seeking: Los Angeles-based Lead Character Animator

I typically try to keep these airwaves clean of artist search announcements, but this is for a project I’m personally involved with. This position is available immediately and please email the address below, not me. I’ll eventually see submissions, so just funnel them at the gmail address.


Big Buddha Baba, a Los Angeles-based studio is looking for a talented LEAD CHARACTER ANIMATOR who animates in Flash and creates traditional hand-drawn character animation to work on a high profile project for a major studio.

We are looking for a portfolio of work that demonstrates a fun, snappy style with strong poses and silhouettes that show personality. Creatively, this project employs a mix of traditional animation and cutout styles (think JibJab meets Ward Kimball meets UPA meets Dexter’s Lab).

You are skilled in conceptual development (storyboards and character design) and creating animations to established designs. You have a good understanding of traditional animation but know when to break the rules to make creative and efficient use of Flash.
