Storyboard Revisionist, 3D
WildBrain is looking for a Storyboard Revisionist for a new 3D project! We are excited to bring this project to life through the Unreal Game Engine pipeline.
In this role, you'll work from the Directors' notes to enhance storytelling and fix problematic sequences in a board. Aside from first-rate drawing skills, you'll need speed, the ability to take and interpret direction, and a knack for adding great poses and expressions to punch up specific scenes. You'll be improving your craft through hands-on experience with our accomplished team of Board Artists and Directors, learning their tricks of the trade.
This role is set to begin in March 2021.
We are currently working virtually because of the Covid-19 pandemic. During this time our hiring teams are ready to support interviews via video conferencing, and we are enabling artists to work from home until the studio can reopen. We’d love to hear from you! #stayhomestaysafe!
