Can you spare a day or more a week in May and June? Want to gain experience working on a commercial animation production? Well, Electric Egg have a few great opportunities for animation students or an early career animator looking to get industry experience on a live brief.
Electric Egg’s award winning animation director Neil Baker is working on a 2D animated film called “The Date” a comic piece that explores serious issues surrounding rape and consent and we would like to offer a couple of work experience opportunities on this production working as assistant animators.
The film is being animated using graphics tablets in Adobe Flash, Photoshop and AfterEffects. Assistants will work in Electric Egg’s busy studio in Lincoln with the director on tasks such as animating lighting effects, in-betweening and animating secondary actions and effects.
Applicants need to be able to evidence having 2D animation skills, must have a working knowledge of Flash, Photoshop and AfterEffects, have experience of and be confident with using a graphics tablet and have a good understanding of animation workflows production processes.
To apply for one of these opportunities email a covering letter stating why you want to gain experience and what you feel you can offer to the production, CV and weblink their own animation showreel or film that contains an example of 2D animation they have created to email@example.com.
The work experience will run on dates and times to be negotiated from mid May – the end of June 2014.
Electric Egg regularly undertake large scale animation projects and this project is not only an opportunity for a young animator to gain experience and add to their own showreel (the chosen student will be allowed, on release of the film, to evidence their participation in their showreel where appropriate) but to showcase your own skills to Electric Egg should we need to recruit animators for up and coming future projects.
DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS: 6th May 2014.
We will review all applications and ask shortlisted applicants to pop in for a chat before making a final decision.
