We specialise in video content for business.  Over the past 11 years, our animations have helped companies:

- attract and retain the best candidates
- train or motivate staff
- explain or promote products and services
- increase brand awareness and appeal
- boost sales and encourage donations

We are video consultants; expert filmmakers fluent in the language of corporate communications.  With a vastly experienced internal team - and thousands of briefs under our belts - we turn business messaging into creative, effective and engaging video better than anyone else.

We have an in-house team of 40 people.  We’ve won a whole bunch of awards.  We make animations for companies and charities that make people feel stuff, buy stuff, love stuff, want stuff, apply for stuff and donate their money to stuff. 

We’re a close team that punches above its weight with accolades, creativity and client base.  We’re ambitious, full of great ideas and we work hard.  Our client list is exciting and growing and so is our team. We want the very best to join us.

Responsibilities

As an Animator at Casual Films, you will be responsible for the quality of the animations you work on, their stylistic approach and their timely delivery.

We are looking for a highly creative individual who, working alongside our Producer, Creative and Audio teams, will be instrumental in developing engaging solutions to our clients’ needs. As well as being technically skilled, the candidate will be involved with creative discussions, interpreting briefs and storyboarding. The candidate will have a strong sense of design and illustration, with an outstanding showreel demonstrating a variety of animation styles, as well as an in-depth understanding of various software packages and their respective workflows. We predominantly work in 2D, but 3D or interactive experience, while not essential, is a bonus.

You will be joining our London team alongside another in-house animator and our freelance animators.

  • Work with creative teams to develop concepts and ideas.
  • Design and illustrate to create style frames.
