- Available to start by February 2006. We also have immediate positions available for LightWave generalists
- Available for the duration of the project, which completes in summer 2007.
- We are looking for team players; energetic, resourceful and those that welcome the challenges and rewards of independent production.
- Preference given to NewTek LightWave, Alias Maya, and Luxology modo savvy Artists, although character animators proficient in any 3D software are welcome.
