Jobs hiring


Tripod Entertainment is looking for animation talents for its “War of the Worlds: Goliath” production (WOTW).

WOTW is a DVD-release English-language animated sci-fi action-adventure “steampunk” movie, based on the “War of the Worlds” novel by HG Wells.

The production is mostly 2D, with 3D vehicles, props and certain environments.

The WOTW DVD movie will be released worldwide, and is expected to complete production in end-2009.

Tripod Entertainment is looking for candidates with the required criteria for the following departments:

1) Layout
  • Function: To create all layout environments for key animation.
  • Criteria: Candidates must be very skilled and experienced artists who understand perspective, and can translate key background drawings into layouts that animators can use. Artistic skill must be significantly strong, and must have experience in animation projects.

2) Colour (a.k.a. Ink & Paint)
  • Function: To apply colour to all animation according to colour key plans.
  • Criteria: Candidates can be fresh graduates or interns interested in starting out in animation.

Please note:
  • Candidates will be hired for a minimum of SIX months, and will be based in Petaling Jaya, Selangor.
  • Freelancers are encouraged, although there is a strong possibility of long-term hire on other Tripod projects, depending on the talent’s performance for WOTW.
  • Candidates will undergo training & supervision with lead artists & animation directors from SUN MIN IMAGE PICTURES, the animation studio behind “Ben 10”, “Fantastic Four”, etc. Sun Min personnel will be based in Petaling Jaya.
  • Candidates will also receive the support of Tripod’s production management based in Los Angeles.

Depending on their performance during this production, selected candidates may have the opportunity to work at Sun Min in Seoul, or with Tripod in Los Angeles, on other projects in the future.

MOST IMPORTANTLY: Candidates must have an aptitude to learn. This is a great opportunity to gain rare knowledge & exposure from a production which is run according to world-class animation processes & disciplines employed in Los Angeles and Seoul.
