Freelance Character Setup TDs/Riggers - AnimationRigs.com/Straight Diesel Studios
AnimationRigs.com/Straight Diesel Studios is looking for a few solid part time Character Setup Artists to join our syndicate of working professionals.
Character work is done on a freelance basis from the plush comfort of your own home or wherever your computer may be. We work with artists to setup a schedule with the flexibility to accommodate other jobs and balance your other life commitments. Work loads do fluctuate, but currently there is no shortage, which is why we're looking for help. Characters vary in style and theme and we have a variety of creatures, bipeds, 4 armed, no head, 4 legged, winged etc in the queue.
We are looking for experienced artists with a strong background in character puppet setup, skinning, deformations, and facial setup. We especially need help with character skinning and would love to find those artists who appreciate the zen art of character weighting. Our procedural system uses a hybrid script and interactive setup process which requires experience with Mel scripting (unless you are just painting weights). Applicants should also have experience with the overall production process, some modeling skills, and an understanding of the way various departments such as modeling, textures, animation, lighting, etc flow into and out of a character setup artists daily work. Game experience is also a plus. A solid understanding of animation and animators is important as is good communication and being very receptive to feedback from Animators, Directors, designers and other riggers.
In summary we need self motivated and independent experienced character setup artists that have:
-production experience (2 or more years preferred)
-zen appreciation for the art of painting weights
-strong body rigging or strong facial rigging skills (preferably both)
-good modeling skills
-Proficient in Mel
-focused independent work ethics

1. Your reel
