Job Description
Western X VFX is looking for Intermediate and Senior Animators for our upcoming live-action feature film.

The ideal applicant should have significant production experience in the appropriate discipline and proficiency with the software, tools and techniques required.

In particular we are looking for people with:
- 3+ years character animation experience in a production environment.
- Strong understanding of the principles of animation, especially an eye for clarity and readability.
- Significant lip-sync and facial animation experience.
- Proficiency with Autodesk Maya.
- A showreel demonstrating your strong keyframe animation skills.
Technical animation capabilities and a technical understanding of visual effects pipelines are a plus as well, as is Shotgun experience. And the candidate must be comfortable in a fast-paced, yet laid back environment.

Western X VFX is a boutique facility in Vancouver, Canada that creates visual effects for a stable, long-running client base - Air Bud Entertainment.
We strictly follow all labour standards, pay proper OT after 8 hours (on the rare occasion that we do overtime), and have an excellent work environment. The studio best suits artists and programmers who value their lives and who, while working hard when they have to, also cherish the parts of their lives that aren't job related.

Our VFX department doesn’t do any third-party work, yet has completed over 15 feature-length films in the last 15 years.
We're best known for the family classic Air Bud, MVP, the Air Buddies franchises, and our most recent franchise, the Pup Star series on Netflix.

Hiring will commence beginning of May and go until approximately middle of September. There is potential for long term extensions, and we pay extremely competitive rates. Preference will be given to BC Residents.
