Freelance Corporate Video 3D Maya Animator

Liaison Creative + Marketing has some upcoming projects starting mid-September which require the services of an Austin-based freelance 3D Animator (Maya) with the ability to respond in real-time and take on workday flex projects as needed. We're supporting a Fortune 500 leader in consumer tech. Our embedded team is facing a crunch time and needs the services of an expert animator with exceptional collaboration and client-services skills

  • Create 3D animations of tech products in collaboration with the existing animator on the team under the guidance of creative leadership through multiple rounds of revisions while providing a high level of client services
  • Collaborate with an existing embedded corporate creative team to enhance their strength for a big surge in work mid-September through November and likely beyond
  • Spring into action with same day response to get projects on your work-week schedule for animation-heavy corporate communications videos that turn advances in consumer PC technology into compelling narratives. Project range from one day to 3 weeks in duration
  • Occasional same-day hard media transfer in person in south Austin – and eventual in-person meetings when safe – may be required, so we are only considering local freelancers

How to be a top candidate for this job:

  • Your application includes a link to a single streaming-enabled demo reel showcasing a breadth of corporate tech-friendly 3D Maya animation work (please no attachments, file-sharing links, or links to multiple separate samples. We will need to see a reel)
  • You're a full-time freelancer without existing full-time schedule commitments for the foreseeable future. We expect to share you with your other clients of course, but we can't share you with a full-time job
  • Occasional same-day hard media transfer in person in south Austin – and eventual in-person meetings when safe – may be required, so we are only considering local freelancers. Non-local candidates can only be considered if you make it clear you'll be local before mid September no matter what
  • Expert skills with 3D Maya software. This is work is NOT fantasy character or gaming environment development but tech product in engaging ways so samples need to be related to our needs

Skills:

  • Maya and V-Ray proficiency. You'll be responsible for creating files that are compatible with Autodesk file types
  • Possibly Substance Painter, Keyshot if you can ensure output is compatible with the client's Autodesk systems

Benefits:

  • Liaison employee benefits will not be provided for this self-employed 1099 freelance opportunity.
