JOB: riggers

LAIKA animation studio in U.S., Oregon is looking for riggers. Facial setup experience is plus. I can personally recommend this, as you will get to work with my ex-colleage Grant Laker. One of the most talented creature TDs I`ve met, who was part of facial setup team on John Carter. So this is great opportunity!
