Sky Pie Studio is looking for a graphic design-minded creative ninja who's interested in joining our posse!
We are a small Brooklyn-based studio with oversized ambitions. We tell stories in stop motion, live action video, photo, 2D animation, and secret blends of all of these – sometimes to satisfy our sprinkle-covered hearts, and sometimes for big fancy brands. Our mascot is a flying penguin named Popeye. If you’ve never seen a penguin fly, you’re hanging with the wrong penguins.
We're looking for someone who's been around the block a little (but not in the dirty way.) You're not going to be an expert at everything – in fact that's partly the idea – but we've got a very, very lengthy wish list. Not for the faint of heart, but if you like a challenge, read on.
This is the cornerstone of our studio! We're hoping to bring someone on who's already got some superfly TNT video production & motion chops. Calling all Animators / Motionographers / Illustrators / Editors. If you can take a video from rough start to polished finish including compositing, keying, sound, and coloring, we’re interested!
Everything from set-design and construction to lighting. An eye for illustration, design, chopping, gluing, and building things with your HANDS! We will be on set or on-location at least once a month, and several times over when things are rolling. If you have experience in this- super dupes- if not we will teach you!
As this is a small team, everyone really has to pull their weight, and then some. We don't want someone who just comes in to check things off a list. We want you to take the initiative to see what things could be done better, and how you can help get it done! No grouches! If you get lemons, make lemonade. If we're out of lemons, make lemonade anyways -- lemonade is tasty.
Our studio has deep roots in design. We geek-out on everything from well-designed mugs to that ZING that comes from the perfect Pantone color. Looking to add someone who's interested geeking out with us and flexing their graphic prowess on set designs and graphics that pop off the screen.
The idea always takes the cake. You will be in the thick of concept development for every shoot that comes through this studio, so hopefully you don't mind sticking post-it notes all over the walls and yelling out crazy-undoable ideas.
If you can draw those undoable ideas, we you already.
A Creative Ninja
Our ‘titles’ don’t keep us from jumping into anything that needs done and neither should yours. You will be a swiss-army knife of creativity. You may be the first person to see a project brief. Or maybe you’ve got a killer concept. Or work on the set design, production, editing who knows! We're looking for someone who gets excited about the creative process and is eager to be a part of ALL of it.
A studio apprenticeship for 2 days a week lasting 6 months. Starting ASAP.
Unpaid at onset but with an opportunity to evolve into a more permanent paid position.
Paid set assistant / production assistant jobs. Once you are savvy on set, you get $$$ as a set assistant on client gigs!
Also further potential $$$ retouching / editing / concepting as soon as you're fluid in those areas.
Exposure to every part of the business you may want to know about... and also those you don't.
A great learning experience. We're "huggers", and that ethos expands to everything we do.
We harbor no secrets and love to geek out! Our CD Daniel has lectured at ICP, Art Academy, and founded a workshop program - really, we can't shut him up.
A relaxed place to work- casual Friday everyday & schedule flexibility
A long term- relationship. We're looking for someone who's invested in growing with the studio
