Massive Black Looking for the Dedicated
At the Austin workshop we discovered the work of Insane Visions. Massive Black Inc. hired him on the spot. Will you be next?

Sharpen those skills, churn out your demo reels and polish your portfolios, the time to apply is coming soon.

As some of you may know from the Workshops and here on, Massive Black has reached it's goals of working with many of the top game developers and publishers in the industry. This comment is not to brag but to let everyone know that Jason Manley, Smellybug (Petey Konig) Justin Kaufman (Coro), Edward Quintero and myself (Travis Bourbeau) will be collaboratively reviewing portfolios and demo reels at the workshop for a host of cool projects.

Massive Black is to hire for all artist positions. These include:Concept Design and Painting/ 3-d Modeling / 3DAnimation (in game and cinematic/film) as well as Texture Painting positions.

By the time the workshop rolls around, Massive Black Inc. will have been moved to their shiny new offices in downtown San Francisco.

New MB san fran crew members include Wes9000 and Insane Visions, both of whom have become well known in the field and on the boards here. Other artists we work with include talented guys like Noxizmad, Marko Djurdjevic, Alessandro Baldasseroni, and many others.

Q. Who should you attack at the workshop during the Monday Portfolio Day?

The MB crew will make decisions on who to hire after we all have the chance to review and go over your work. If one of us is not available just hit up whomever is free. We want to be sure to see your work on Monday's portfolio day.

I wont speak for Jason and the rest of the crew but I can say that the number one and two qualities I am looking for in an artist is consistency and dependability. If your'e not dedicated donít apply. Every artist at Massive Black is there because they love what they do with a passion.
