Look At This! it's a Full-time job

8th Frame is looking for a Creative Director/Lead Animator in Brooklyn, NY, USA.


Hi all,

8th Frame is a motion graphics studio based in Brooklyn, NY, though everyone currently works remotely. It's a small team, just three of us for now, myself (Ryan), plus Michael and Keiko. While we do some explainer videos, documentaries, and visual effects, primarily we work in live (and now largely virtual) events. As such, we create a lot of opening title sequences to kick off events and build a lot broadcast-style packages (segment/speaker intro animations, lower thirds, tickers, etc.)

What we're looking for is someone who can both work as part of a small team and be able to handle entire jobs from top to bottom by themselves, including, at times, being responsible for overseeing staff and freelancers. We need someone with a great creative sense, a strong design eye, and top notch animation skills. First and foremost, you need a high level of proficiency designing and animating in After Effects and Cinema 4D. Experience in Octane and Redshift is strongly preferred. Red Giant plug-ins, X-particles, Turbulence, Marvelous Designer, Substance, etc. are also bonuses. Sculpting, character design, rigging, and animation are all pluses as well, but we use those skills much less frequently.

Your job will vary every day but will include:

- pitching concepts directly to clients
- receiving feedback, suggesting & coming up with solutions
- managing clients via phone and email

- creative direction
- concept and look development
- static graphic design
- motion graphic animations
- 3D modelling, texturing, lighting, animation
- video editing
- sound design
- sourcing music
- overseeing staff, contractors and double checking work
- making and keeping organized to-do lists & calendars
- managing budgets
- juggling multiple projects at the same time

If you think you'd be a good fit, we'd love to meet you. We're a small group, but we're nice, we care about our clients and each other, and are always pushing our skills to do better and better work.
