Henry Selick’s New Studio Cinderbiter Hiring Head of Story

New details have emerged about Henry Selick’s new San Francisco animation studio Cinderbiter Productions. A job recruitment post on CreativeHeads offered the following details:

Cinderbiter is a new stop-motion company whose mandate is to make great, scary films for young ‘uns with a small, tight-knit crew who watch each other’s backs. Joining Henry on Cinderbiter’s first production will be veteran team members Eric Leighton and the celebrated production designer, Lou Romano. That’s right — Lou Romano!

They’re currently hiring a head of story for their first project, titled Shademaker, and if you want to work alongside Lou Romano–that’s right, Lou Romano!–here are the the requirements:

– Experience on at least one animated feature as a key story artist.
– Strong drawing skills that don’t require tone and embellishment to make their point.
– You know to draw funny without relying on tiresome, bloodless cliches.
– You possess a quirky sense of humor that comes through in your drawing.
– Ability to lead a small team of other highly-talented story artists.
– You are self-confident but not arrogant; you know how to keep working a scene and support the director’s vision.
– Know how to use different shots to tell the story well and don’t rely on a layout department to figure it out for you.
– Experience with Toon Boom and Cintiq a plus
