Wanted! Senior Character Animator

Bulldog is currently working on a number of original, social game projects that acquire, engage, retain and monetize lottery players. At this point, we can’t disclose too much about this but you CAN have a sneak peak at some of the preliminary game concept art for one of the games. Can I get a ‘yayyyyyyyy’ up in here?

Anyway, we’d like to add a Senior Character Animator to our team. Do you have a thorough understanding of body mechanics, classic animation principles and animation pipelines? Can you translate detailed concept art into in-game and cinematic sequences that match the artistic style defined by our studio lead? Yes? Well get in touch already! We expect to see a demo reel that features a diverse selection of game-related animation that will leave us begging for your autograph.

Teach us a thing or two (we’ll reciprocate!)
1. Create exceptional animated content from art and game play
2. Work with lead and programmers to develop game animation pipelines
3. Solve game play problems while maintaining artistic vision
4. Help to solve technical issues and in-game constraints
5. Implement in-game animations
6. Help to mentor junior members of our team

Bring mad skills (for a gold star, bring biscuits too):
1. At least 5 years of game art production or film related experience
2. An advanced degree or professional certification requiring formal training
3. Expert knowledge of Maya, 3D Max, Mudbox, Z-Brush and Photoshop
4. Modeling using both high and low-poly techniques
5. VFX and lighting experience
6. Expert understanding of human and animal anatomy
7. Advanced traditional painting skills in both stylised and photo realistic styles
8. Ability to meet deadlines under tight schedules

So, do you wanna be in our gang? (Awww go on!)
You’ll be comfortable working with a close-knit team that; embraces those who see things differently, has a healthy disdain for constraints and possess a small-studio-camaraderie that inspires the creation of exceptional social game IP for an international audience. You show us talent, skill and experience and we’ll show you the money. Only applicants willing to work on-site at our office in Malta will be considered.



Okay then, impress us.
