  • Collaborate with all members of the team to bring characters and their world alive.
  • Creative problem solving on how to create the best animation systems within a small team.

  • Excellent character animation skills including non-human characters.
  • Knowledge of
    • Maya and Unreal
    • Layering animation.
    • Additive animation.
