Explanimate! is a commercial animation house, based in Brisbane. We make lovely animation, in the form of commercials, explainers, TVC's, music videos, and other random sorts of commercial and corporate animation. We have a small team of nice people, who love great design, slick motion and beautiful art.
We like other nice people too. In fact, we are looking for another nice person now! But being nice is just the start, you'll need to have some sweet 2d animation skills.
OK let's be more specific, here’s a quick snapshot of the hardworking, self-starter we're after…
You’re nice (... think we've established that)
You work well with people and it’s hard to make you grumpy.
You have some well-developed hand-drawn animation skills
You know illustrator / photoshop and after effects like the back of your hand
You appreciate and follow great design, and love to push the boundaries of what you do and take your work to the next level
You're creative, you get a buzz out of great original design that isn't just a rework of the latest style off the rack from Buck or Giant Ant.
You're loyal, and will take some pride, ownership and joy in being an integral part of a team trying to take our portfolio of work to the next level.
You're creative and can bring some concepts and project ideas to the table, not just reobotically execute aybe you even have some script / storytelling skills
You’ve been crafting work like what you see on our website for AT LEAST a couple of years, or, your work looks like you have.
You’re passionate about making the world a better place.
You value your own physical and mental health, and like to take care of both.
We like to have a laugh, you should too.
Here's what the job entails…
You'll be mainly working on animated commercial / promo videos. These are usually between 30secs and 2mins.
You'll be taking scripts and creating styleframes, or draft art.
You'll be knocking up storyboards, and then animating them in full.
Sometimes you'll do the above, start to finish, other times, you might animate someone else's designs, or someone else may animate yours, ideally you're capable of both. If not, don't dispair! If you're a great designer but "not so great" animator, we'd still like to hear from you.
Ideally, you'll be working on site in our Loganholme (QLD) based studio, but we are also open to hearing from appropriate people that could only work with us remotely.
Unfortunately we dont offer a daily yoga class or morning kale smoothies, but you'll enjoy working with us. Guaranteed. No agency ego (ughh...) - easy going, family friendly, values based and driven to create exceptional work. We’ve got big ambitions too and we’re working on our “hip” culture, maybe you can help with that?
If you got to this point and you’re interested, hit us up! We'd love to see / know...
Your showreel + CV
No essays needed, but a some other info about you and why you think you'd be a great fit with our team.
Look forward to hearing from you!
