Yeah MJ, cgtalk is a good place to look. TBH normal job sites don't usually carry these types of jobs. As its a real speciality still. Try CG Talk as Steve has suggested, but also try http://www.creativeheads.net or http://www.highend3d.com also they have a jobs section too.

Dont b shy to pick up non paid work too. its stuff to add to your CV.

I'm from Torquay and i get the occasional job hear and there. Most of them are simple stuff like logo animations. Any Job offer is a good one though. All of the stuff is for online so it can be done from anywhere. You don't have to limit yourself to your country (Unless you want a job at an office or something).

Hmm. I had someone email me a whole list of game developers in Australia. Most of them of are really small and make mobile games and stuff except for Torus. I'll post the list here when I get home.

You can also get job sites like seek to auto email you when certain jobs are listed, ie Jobs with Maya or 3D etc.

Good Luck
