Gainax Posts Job Listing for 'New Anime Production' (Updated)
posted on by Egan Loo
The Gainax anime studio has posted a urgent student job listing for a visual image assistant position on a "new animation production" on Friday. The art student who fills the part-time position will be designing buildings, furniture, vehicles, and other objects for an animated project set in Great Britain from 1900 to 1930. The position lasts from May to October for three days a week.
Another Gainax staff recruitment ad gave the first indications in 2008 that Gainax was planning a new Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann project after the original television anime series; Gainax eventually announced that the project was a theatrical film remake.
Update: Like several other Japanese animation studios, Gainax welcomes non-Japanese job applicants. However the company requires applicants to have enough Japanese fluency to carry everyday conversations, in order to maintain communications during production.
