The studio I work for, Powerhouse Animation, is looking for a few skilled digital painters and animators in the Austin, TX area, or willing to relocate to Austin.  This would be for a full-time, long-term position.

We are looking for digital painters who are comfortable working in a variety of styles, from realistic to cartoony (and everything in between).  As for animators, we are looking for folks who have experience with traditional animation (not 3D), with bonus points going to those who can comfortably animate in both western and eastern styles of animation.  More bonus points for those who can do both animation AND digital painting!

We more than welcome students and those just out of school, but we are looking for exceptionally skilled individuals who will jump straight in to production without a ton of training, so please keep that in mind while applying.

If you're interested, please email me at with a link to your portfolio and/or demo reel.

Also feel free to leave a comment if you have any questions, but please don't send your portfolio through DA notes or comments!  I may not see it or it may get lost!  Please email it!

-Sam Deats, Creative Director at Powerhouse Animation
