Freelance Lead Animators

Lightpool Festival – Posted by LightpoolFestivalAnywhere

Job Description

Invitation to tender:
Lead Animators (max. 5 positions) – Light Odyssey – Lightpool Festival in partnership with BBC Philharmonic

We are looking for experienced digital animators to join a wonderfully ambitious project celebrating the world-famous Blackpool Illuminations and to launch the Lightpool Festival 2018.

Fee: £4000 fixed project fee.
Travel and accommodation expenses to/from Blackpool will be covered as necessary.

Context:
On 18 October 2018, we want to create a fantastic experience in Blackpool – Light Odyssey – to push the boundaries of light, space, and sound. The Lightpool Festival is teaming up with BBC Philharmonic to create a fully immersive indoor spectacular in the world-famous Empress Ballroom in Blackpool’s Winter Gardens.

We want to bring the Ballroom to life in 2D and 3D light animation. Live performances of Copland, Britten and Saint-Saëns will fill the air with music that invokes the sea and a sense of place, experienced anew with light, and in conversation with the Ballroom’s unparalleled grandeur. We are seeking to create a new cultural event that’s intensely live, cinematic and of the highest quality.

Content:
We are looking for up to 5 digital animators from across the UK to each create 7-minute chapters that show off the best of 3D animation. Under the steer of the Creative Director, you will bring the Ballroom to life in a way that has not been experienced before: an orchestra of animators to meet the orchestra of musicians.
