Description:

3D ANIMATOR

Who are we? 

ELT songs is developing an engaging children’s English language learning platform: Planet Pop! We teach English through original music videos, dance and engaging media content. The Company’s mission is to make learning a new language as easy and enjoyable as listening to your favourite song on the radio. We’re in the process of building the first ever English language teaching platform that covers the entire Cambridge CYL curriculum in songs and accompanying video tutorials.

 

Position Summary

Animation is the creation of a virtual world in which everything must be visualized and created from pure imagination. The 3D Animator brings an imagined universe and the characters that inhabit it to life. Everything within frame has scope, weight and meaning. Animators need to be able to visualize new worlds into being. 

 

The first step in the animation process is storyboarding, that is, visualizing the story. Here, each scene is sketched out and the action is mapped over a sequence of panels. This serves as a guide for the production process. 

 

The characters and backgrounds are then modelled in three-dimensional forms using virtual rigs which are then textured to produce an outer layer.

Their movements and trajectories are then inputted into the software as mathematical equations which are then rendered via a graphics processing unit which outputs the final animation.

  • Liaising with animators and concept artists regarding the requirements of the project
  • Working from concept art to create characters, objects, layouts, backgrounds, etc
