Gameplay Animator [Splinter Cell] at Ubisoft Toronto

As a Gameplay Animator at UbiTO, you are responsible for a game’s polished, harmonious animation, which allows players to fully immerse themselves in a world that is stylistically believable and consistent.

Whether you’re animating for a hero or for a crowd or an object, you are always thinking of the movement’s intention and the subject’s behaviour, and of how this one tiny part fits into the larger picture of the game. All your efforts gain their meaning when you take a step back, see the finished product and feel the months of mechanics and decision-making dissolve to reveal a piece of art that brings a new, beautiful world to life.

The daily life of a Gameplay Animator at Ubisoft Toronto:

  • Sync the engine and the build to ensure you’re working with the latest code and animations.
  • Check in with your lead and your team to update and be updated on the current situation.
  • Depending on the production stage, you then move on to:
    • Prototyping, keyframing, or blocking an animation;
    • Working on your animations, of course, from scratch or from mo-cap;
    • Testing your animations—over and over—and validating your designs;
    • Problem-solving your animations;
    • Polishing your animations.
  • Read the latest relevant academic literature in order to stay at the forefront of your field.

What it takes to make it:

  • A college diploma in 3D for videogames or equivalent;
  • 3-5 years of experience in videogame animation or equivalent;
  • Proficiency to communicate with all disciplines and to support and elevate the team in terms of visuals;
  • Experience with animation software such as Motion Builder, 3ds Max or Maya;
  • You love pushing the envelope, but you also understand the demands of cohesive teamwork.
