Playground Games are seeking a Lead Animator!

If you're looking for a role where you'll be responsible for creating a diverse variety of animations, this one's for you. It's also worth mentioning that you'll be working on an entirely new (and incredibly exciting) AAA open world project - at one of the UK's official 'Best Places to Work'! 

You're required to be a creative animator and a problem solver, with good knowledge of the technical aspects of your craft, including practical experience with current 3D software such as Maya, 3DsMax and Motionbuilder. As an animator at Playground you'll also have the opportunity to collaborate with the team on improving the animation and art pipelines.

Your expertise in the creation of animation will cover a broad range of key areas, including facial, motion capture and keyframe and your developed eye will aid in the breakdown and design of animation focused mechanics. You'll be capable of explaining your craft to others, and liaising with other teams involved in the project, 

Sound like fun? You'll never have two days the same - working with characters, creatures and props. Experience and knowledge of game development is essential. It probably goes without saying that you'll need to be technically brilliant, with a strong eye for detail, and a huge passion for video games. 

So, can you....

  • Demonstrate strong experience in a variety of animation styles?
  • Show us that your creative skillset can adapt to technical requirements?
  • Show strong understanding of human anatomy?

If so..... I want to hear from you! Drop me a line at danny.b@aswift.com, or give me a ring on +44 (0)1709 834 777.
