We are looking for animators to work with the Producer/Director of Animated Minds, an award winning series of short animated documentaries exploring various aspects of mental illness and psychological distress. The first series was commissioned by Channel 4 in 2003 and went on to win numerous awards, including best Animation at the BANFF television festival. Now, 8 more films have been commissioned exploring themes including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Dementia, Anorexia, Deliberate Self-harm, Asperger's Syndrome and various neurological disorders.

Each film will employ varying animation techniques, and the ability to be creative, flexible and innovative is as important as experience. A sensitivity to the subject matter is essential. We're looking for people who are interesting in experimenting with form, using a variety of different techniques.

All films will go into production in early 2008, and a fixed fee will be offered for what we expect to be 4-6 weeks of full time work.

To apply, we need:

(1) A full, up to date CV
(2) A show reel, either on DVD, VHS or DVCAM

Those selected for interview will be asked to bring a visual treatment of an animated documentary dealing with these issues.
All applications need to be received by 1st November. Any enquiries, in the first instance, should be made to Jenny Saunders at Mosaic Films, or 020 7923 2994
