Production Assistant

Boulder Media are looking for a Production Assistant to join the team!

The role involves creating individual animation files in flash (FLA prep) and checking the durations and specifications of the files before animation can begin.

In addition to this the role requires prepping models, checking design materials and updating spread sheets

This role would suit an organised and thorough individual and although a good working knowledge of Flash is not necessary it would be an advantage. Also a good understanding of the animation pipeline would be preferable.

This exciting opportunity would suit a junior animator or someone looking to break into the animation industry and the successful candidate will benefit from working within a busy production office and gain experience across all aspects of animation production.
