Purpose of Position

Do you watch opening credits sequences for fun? Are you too busy admiring the technical aspects of Pixar movies to get caught up in the emotional stuff? Are you a cinephile and/or TV junkie? If you answered yes to those questions, we’d like to meet you. Mad Genius is looking for a Junior Motion Designer to help us create some awesome—half motion designer and half post-production generalist.

Responsibilities

So, what will you be doing? As Junior Motion Designer, you’ll be facilitating Mad Genius’s Production Department, responsible for various motion graphics duties. One day you may be working on animation-only explainer videos, another day you may be crafting some animated art tags for some live-action spots. And then, on yet another glorious day, you may be working on editing or basic color correction. But no matter what project is in front of you, Mad Genius will depend on you to stay up-to-date with the latest trends and bring refreshing ideas to the table. Ours is not a huge team, so you’ll need to be agile, confident, and accountable. At Mad Genius, expect the unexpected. But also the expected. Both happen.

Requirements/Qualifications

  • A demo reel or website
  • Fluent in Adobe After Effects and Premiere Pro—yes, both
  • Proficient in the supplementary suite of CC software and it’s integration with motion workflows
  • Able to accomplish administrative tasks in parallel: tracking your time, chatting with the rest of the office, patting your head, and rubbing your belly
  • A solid foundational understanding of cinematic principles: camera settings, cinematography basics, narrative storytelling, and general production know-how
  • A proven ability to deliver fast turnarounds and juggle multiple projects

Nice to Haves

  • Experience in 3D software (preferably Cinema 4D)
  • Experience with color correction and basic audio editing abilities
  • Experience with advanced plugins and trackers like Element3D and Mocha Pro
  • Storyboard/Illustration abilities
