Bright Little Labs is building a kids’ media giant for the 21st century. We make all sorts of kids’ stuff which promotes critical thinking, computer science, equality - and diverse identities and experiences. Our flagship story is about Detective Dot - an 11-year-old coder who is on a dangerous mission from the C.I.A. (Children’s Intelligence Agency). We’re on our way to publishing more books, mobile games and expanding our digital platform. We also just partnered with Turner (who own Cartoon Network!) so we’re making cartoons and games too.
We need an animation writer to help us create engaging, funny, interactive stories (for 2D + 3D) to inspire and entertain our audience of 7-11 year-olds. If you believe wholeheartedly in the power of stories and toilet humour to inspire the next generation, get in touch.
THIS IS IMPORTANT: Our character - Detective Dot - is a third-generation British Indian girl. We want to work with people who believe in authentic character creation and we’re actively looking to work with people with lived experience of our characters and her family.
THIS IS ALSO IMPORTANT: We’re now hiring a creative team to help turn Dot into games and cartoons. We’re actively looking to work with people who have lived experience of our character's culture, and her family life. We value merit, initiative and values over qualifications or industry experience. All of our roles (designers, producers, animators, illustrators etc.) are here. Please share or apply, and help us to create something amazing.
This is a contract role for a project which will run for approximately 3 months.
Starting February in our cosy office in Old Street.
Please submit examples of your work and keep your covering email short + sweet.
