Layout Artist (Short-Term)

Location: Emeryville, CA
Job #: 1766



We are looking for a strong, innovative Layout Artist (on a short-term basis) who can create sequences of shots that visually tell the story through the application of traditional filmmaking principles using Pixar’s proprietary animation software.


Establish the composition, character staging and camera movement for each shot
Pose and animate characters simply and effectively to help convey the intent of a shot
Able to design and structure shots in continuity to help best tell the story
Provide clean technical set-up of shots for downstream production departments


3-5 years of experience as a Layout Artist on animated feature, or cinematographer on live action feature
Proven artistic skills in cinematography, including a strong sense of composition, staging, and camera language
Understand basic concepts of character animation and character posing
Be organized and technically proficient
Be able to take direction and be willing to address constructive feedback
Have good communication and problem-solving skills
Camera polish experience a plus
Be able to deliver on schedule, working efficiently under pressure
Willing to work flexible hours (including nights and weekends) and/or overtime on short notice


Whenever possible, please include rough layout footage rather than final rendered film clips as it gives us a better idea of your involvement in the work
We prefer to see blocks of shots in continuity (whether a full sequence or a section of one) and not just single shots from different parts of a film — this allows us to see your sequential storytelling skills and how you piece shots together

Pixar is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
