17 January, 2015 |  13 Comments | by Ton Roosendaal

We need another Gooseberry team member here, to work with as a character animator in our animation team with Hjalti and Sarah.

Requirements:

  • Available to work full-time in Amsterdam for the working period (at least March-August)
  • EU citizen, and/or has a valid working and residence permit for the Netherlands
  • Has a public portfolio of own animation work and assigned work (film, commercials)
  • Portfolio preferably includes work with Blender!
  • Should be capable of planning shots and doing the blocking and final animation (this is not a rigging job)
  • Available to start March 1st; six month contract possible

Benefits:

  • Work on a Creative Commons project, giving you unlimited portfolio benefits!
  • Work on an independent animation short — no big studio or investor is telling us what to do
  • Pre-tax salary of 2500 euros/month; we pay for travel costs to Amsterdam and back home
  • We can provide you with a good place to live in the center of Amsterdam
  • Full time (40h per week), with 20+ days paid holidays per year

Want to apply?

  • Make sure you have a public web portfolio, web page, website, or YouTube/Vimeo channel … anything goes!
  • Send a short mail with link(s) to portfolio to ton at blender.org giving sufficient info about who you are and including a CV
  • Do not send any stills, animation videos, blender files, etc., as attachments … make sure this is all online and public
  • I reserve the right to not look at private (not public)/password-protected submissions
  • Please send your letter of application no later than January 24th

Non-EU citizens without existing Dutch residency/work permits will get opportunities to contribute too (also here in Amsterdam). But we will do calls for that later.

  3. Hola !!
    My name is Carles and I am very passionate about computer animation, and I am strongly interested in the animation spot Blender institute is offering. Starting of with architectural rendering, I finally found my true passion in character animation, which was the reason I applied to the Animation Mentor program, which I graduated in June 2012. Understanding animation motion, principles and, I’m able to create several style of animation.
