From the site:
Culver City local Animation Studio needs to fill two positions for current project on upcoming feature film starting immediately. Positions specified below:
Seeking Senior level Maya generalist with experience in particles in effects. Feature film work on your demo reel is required. Some MEL Scripting/Expressions are going to be a sizeable part of this job. You will be working directly with the visual effects supervisor and doing some particles and effects and object animation (no characters). You will also need to know how to work with a tracked camera (some tracking experience is good as well) and modeling some environment geometry for us to create some lighting effects later in comp.
