Creation Studio Ltd www.creationstudio.co.uk have just been commissioned to remake a childrens TV series and are looking for at least one enthusiastic and keen full time 3D artist to join our team. Knowledge and examples of both modelling and animation in Lightwave is essential.

Please send your CV along with a portfolio to [email protected] We are looking for a full time candidate who will be working at our studio in essex, UK (currently based in Ongar, due to move to Rayleigh near Chelmsford/Southend very soon).

Hours are 9am till 5pm weekdays and salary is related to experience, qualification and skill (skill being the most important of them all). We are looking to hold interviews as soon possible - date extended due to lack of applicants...

You will be joining an exciting and fun team, and the project will involve a great deal of character modelling and animation, and much much more...

I'm amazed you had a lack of applicants. I'm not experienced in characters myself, but plenty are... come on people!

Good luck of finding you new artist!

Cheers

Chris - we have to create pretty much everything, so character modelling isn't the only thing you have to do - please feel free to submit a CV and some examples of your work I will be happy to look at it...

This is really surprising! In the past when I've applied to Lightwave-based jobs in the UK there has been a lot of competition...mainly from folks who have worked on Captain Scarlet. Haha.
Hope the search is going well Tony. BTW, did you get a suitable graduate for that position last year?

have worked on Captain Scarlet. Haha.
Hope the search is going well Tony.

vast majority of us are working in Soho now I think, so the numbers have settled somewhat.

Cheers!

I've heard a few companies mention that they aren't getting many applicants. I have more work than I want at the moment so I'm not looking but here's just a couple comments from the other side of the fence that might help gain more interest.

First, creating and sending a CV and portfolio takes time and money. Most of us are way too busy. We often spend major time and effort to send off all this stuff and often get no response at all. Wasted time.

Perhaps ask for online or email samples first. THEN if it looks good ask for all that stuff. Much quicker, much less wasted time. Remember, GOOD people are BUSY. You don't want the ones that have a lot of extra time.

Correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't CV stand for Corriculum Vitae or something like that and wasn't that for people applying for education jobs (professors and the like)? Again, extra work and how does a CV help someone animate?

Then again, what do I know, I'm not in human resources and don't have a degree in it. Maybe I'm just a Canadian crackpot. :D (quite likely)

I live in the USA, and have moved four times in the last 10 years for jobs. Now I want to stay put and work at home in Lightwave.

You are correct in the abbreviation of CV, but it isn't education specific, it is simply the English equivilant of saying Resume. However it is possible our cousins on the otherside of the pond might not realise that.... not sure.

I think part of the problem is that Soho is sucking up HUGE numbers of people right now.... perhaps the knock on effect is that smaller studios away from Soho will see a fall off in availability.

Cheers!

Is that Soho in Toronto or have I got the wrong one? What are they up to that they need that many people?

Hehe - I assume he's on about Soho in London, the area with more 3D artists per square foot than the entire NAB show ;)

Hi kikithuy, I emailed you about a week ago regarding this job and haven't heard from you. Could you confirm that you got my email? Thank you.

It doesn't take that much time if you create one as soon as your entering the workforce, then amend it when it needs updating. Just a few minutes each time you get a job. As for money, he didn't ask for paper and DVD/VHS to be shipped, he gave an email address. Honestly I see more and more studios that prefer an online reel and resume/CV.

I too wondered what the heck a CV was when I was first starting to look for work. A lot of internet searching gave me the same as what you said, something about with teaching. I figured they were just talking about a resume, so that's what I sent.

As you all know, the US and UK are divided by a common language sometimes known as English. Different words and terms are used to mean the same thing on opposite sides of the Atlantic, e.g. in the UK we have mobile phones while the US refer to cell phones. The same applies with CVs and resumes. Here in the UK we have a Curriculum Vitae or CV, a Latin term, while the US has resume, a French term (there should be an accent over the second 'e'). They are both exactly the same thing with a different title. Neither title makes a great deal of sense and should perhaps be replaced with something a little longer and more meaningful such as 'Life and Work History'.

....of course that would make life far too simple :D
