Vacancy: 2D ToonBoom Animator (6 month contract)

Sea Monster is looking for a mid-level 2D animator proficient in ToonBoom to join our animation team on an exciting project for an American client, for a six-month contract starting in November.

You should have at least 2 to 3 years of experience animating in ToonBoom – either fulltime or freelance. You should be comfortable with a variety of animation styles, including hand-drawn and cut-out/puppet style, with lip sync.

The animation style is locked and the pipeline is already set up. This is not a freelance position – we will provide the machine (iMac) and software licences, and you will be required to work in our studio and adhere to our usual working hours.

Preferred characteristics and skills:

  • 2D animation qualification, or equivalent experience in the industry
  • ToonBoom Harmony (Essential)
  • Photoshop
  • Illustrator
  • Experience working on a character-animation series with lip sync

The Work Ethic:

You need to have good communication skills and enjoy working closely with a small team. This position often involves high-pressure situations and deadlines (although we try and keep overtime work to a minimum). You would need to be very comfortable working autonomously as well as closely with other team members, and enjoy multitasking and problem solving on all levels.

To apply please email your CV to hello@seamonster.co.za
