BECOME 3D CHARACTER ANIMATOR : studios are recuiting !

Important career opportunities to be seized ... jobs to be filled in the animation industry are booming!


According to the union of animation film producers (SPFA), the employment sector which currently represents 5000 people in France will increase to 7500 in 2020. Since 2001, the French animation has produced yearly on average more than 300 hours of programs (355 hours in 2011) and 3 to 10 feature films (10 in 2011). This tendancy has been observed everywhere in the world and the need for 3D Character Animators is increasing in Europe, Canada, China etc. 

"Character animators have been the most sought-after in recent times as during the production of an animated film, it is the work requiring the most skilled. A lot of studios are in great need in terms of recruitment and struggle to build their teams, which is especially the case in 3D animation projects" says Moïra Marguin, Head of Animation Cinema Department of GOBELINS.
