work would be required! although play does happen a fair bit too. a relaxed working environment means that employees are set a work load and if met can play as much as they want during. there is a 50inch plasma hooked up to playstation2, xbox, teststation plus when projects are getting heavy and workload hits deadlines we have taken our guys diving and other activities too as kind of additional thanks in the past. but YES work is pretty hard though and we do expext a pretty high standard.

Well shoot. Let me pull my kilt out of the mothballs, laddy... it's time to go to the highlands!

Yeah Kev. It wouldn't be the cakewalk like you have here at SM.

Sounds like a sweet job, and its not that far to travel, (unlike the latest jobs UBI had open in Montreal!). But my animation stills suck, but its nice to dream.

Me I would love to have a job like that. But I don't have enufe expireance yet.. hay,, I'll do some for this Nov/Dec challenge. That would count, right Kevin ? Don't think the company would want to pay for my relocation though.

I know a few character animators in Glasgow area (all of whom have masters degrees in computer animation) only problem is that they were trained in softimage (but they do know a bit of maya and I know they can pick it up very easily) if you are interested in seeing their stuff I can get them to contact you directly pm me with a contact number etc these guys are good and very eager to start asap (tomorrow if you really wanted them to ) or would you like me to get them to email you?

Cheers
Alan
