World to Build Corporate - Apply for Character Animator (Contract)

Character Animator (Contract)

Job Overview
Who We Are
Welcome to World to Build! 👋
World to Build is an online social platform where players can come together to build and code awesome games, trade in an interactive market, meet new friends, design their own 3D avatar, and much more! We are a startup company located in Wake County, North Carolina and are looking for team members that are as excited as we are about developing a gaming platform where the creation possibilities are endless. Want to join what we're creating?
This position is contract work for an animator to create various character animations for the World to Build character. World to Build allows players to wear an infinite combination of voxels that take form as different body parts on the player character. However, the player character for all players share the same rig and animations. This work is to remake existing movement animations (Run, Jump, Idle, etc) and emote animations (Dab, Clap, Cheer, and a few more) in addition to creating new emote animations and some one-off animations like small arm gestures for when a player sends a message in-game. We are targeting a cartoony and animated movement style, not realistic or motion captured. Due to the nature of World to Build, we do not need any rigging or skinning work. As a heads up, we are looking for work that can be done in a free software such as Blender to avoid license fees.

This position expects experience with creating high-quality animations for video game projects (professional or personal). You will not need to implement any of your animations into the game yourself. If this position sounds like something you fit and would enjoy doing, let's talk!

As a very small development team on a shoestring budget, we don't have the luxury of paying contractors the industry standard for their valuable work. If you have an interest in showing off your work to the world through our platform and understand the nuances of a fresh company (and game company), you can apply here and we will discuss the application process and compensation.
