We are looking for a talented stopmotion animator and all-round creative artist. This unique opportunity will involve the production of simple art and science tutorials. Using the stopmotion technique known as Pixilation, you will be responsible for filming your own hands constructing crafts and simple experiments.

Key Skills:

  • The ability to create high-quality models and crafts.
  • Self-motivated with a passion for creating high quality content.
  • Attention to detail and a flair for visual storytelling.
  • A good understanding of video production, animation and art principles.
  • Great at communicating your ideas and are comfortable working within a team.
  • The ability to work independently and adapt to new tools and techniques.
  • Excellent organisation, planning skills and time management.
