Fullbright seeks a Contract 2D Character Animator!

Fullbright, the creators of acclaimed story exploration games Gone Home and Tacoma, are working on our next project, Open Roads, in collaboration with Annapurna Interactive. We seek an experienced Contract 2D Character Animator to join our team remotely.

This contract animator will work directly with Fullbright's Art Director and our Executive Producer to contribute 2D character animation in Toon Boom Harmony for our narrative game currently in production, shipped in a high-quality, timely, & humane manner.

Our unique art style blends 2D animated characters in 3D model environments. Our pipeline incorporates rough 2D animation created in Toon Boom Harmony using 3D character model animation blocking as a base to establish timing and help keep those proportions on track!

You can see this process in action in our teaser trailer that debuted at the 2020 Game Awards:

About Open Roads:

One fine fall day, Tess Devine and her mother Opal discover a cache of old notes and letters carefully stashed away in the attic of their house. Hints of deep-rooted family secrets, decades-old burglaries, a lost treasure somewhere near the Canadian border... What they uncover suggests a mystery that's best left well enough alone.

But that’s not going to happen.

In Open Roads, Tess and Opal embark on a road trip adventure to explore a series of long-abandoned family properties, unearthing the past. They’ll search the ruins of these places that hold buried memories, things Opal has tried for years to forget. And in this search, they'll discover not just the truth they've been seeking, but each other.
