Framestore Recruiting Animation Supervisor
Location: London (United Kingdom)
Start Date: immediately
We’re looking for a creative, talented Animation Supervisor to join our team. If you are the right one for us, you are passionate about storytelling and love creating photorealistic characters and creatures. You are interested in being intimately involved in the creation of a story from initial concepts and storyboards, through to transforming the creative into an awesome 100% CG dark ride experience.
The Dark Ride project will be using cutting edge ride technology to create a completely believable feeling that our CG characters and scenes are actually real. It uses many huge screens set around a massive sound-stage full of practical sets that the ride vehicles crashes through during the adventure. The clever use of stereo and perspective warping makes the riders genuinely not know where the physical set ends and the CG begins. The end result is ride that leaves people floored, and they keep coming back for decades to ride it again and again. These are the most extreme entertainment experiences on the planet.
We will be creating CG scenes set in a wide range of very dynamic environments, with many highly detailed and exquisitely animated characters. A custom score and soundtrack with be created to sync up to our work, as well as many live special effects such as water, fire, smoke, moving vehicles. It’s going to be cool.
The Animation Supervisor will be responsible for the overall quality of the animation on the project, for keeping it on brief and for delivering consistent performances by assigning, or casting, the appropriate Animators.
