Animation Director - Remote

Are you making AAA animations without a second thought these days? Would you like to carry on working remotely with an exceptional team and have the chance to shape a brand new IP?

This daring new studio is creating cutting edge AAA entertainment and their founding team of industry veterans have got full funding for their upcoming projects. They’re looking to build a team of people who strive to be the best in their fields and want to work alongside equally motivated people at the top of their game.

As the Animation Director you will oversee everything created and delivered by the animation team, while also being involved in the game direction at a higher level. You will be able to pick out what takes an animation or scene from interesting to incredible.

Animation Director Responsibilities:

  • Take personal responsibility for the delivery of high-quality animation assets and environments
  • Use both your own exquisite animation skills, and your management experience to ensure the entire animation department are creating the work needed for the game
  • Take an interest in the overall work of the studio from production to development and use your knowledge of successful AAA game delivery to critique and feedback to the team as needed

Requirements for this remote role:

  • 5 or more years of experience in an animation role within the games industry
  • 2 or more shipped AAA titles with your involvement from start to finish
  • Portfolio of work showcasing your character animation skills, ideally showing how you progressed them from static to interesting, storytelling characters
  • Experience with animation for melee combat and other fundamentals
  • Extensive experience working with Maya/3DSMac and Blender
  • Rigging experience on real-time projects

If your set of skills fits the above, then we’d love to hear from you! You can apply with your CV below or get in touch with Nicole on as she will be the one to take you through the recruitment process for this job.
