OPEN CALL for 3D modeling and animation artists (RO, ES, IT)

Dear IETM members,

I know this is only tangentially related to the performing arts, but perhaps you know of any 3D modeling and animation artists based in Spain, Italy, or Romania who might be interested in our open call, so I include it below.

Teatrul “George Ciprian” Buzău (RO), Industria Scenica (IT) and UCAM Universidad Católica San Antonio de Murcia (ES) are looking for early-career 3D modeling and animation artists under the age of 30 to join
the project team of Tele-Encounters: Beyond the Human, co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union. The project explores the integration of telepresence, robots, and A.I. into art and the impact of technology on transnational family relationships.

The 3D artists' tasks (in short):

- Coordinating 2 workshops for robot design development (concept only) alongside a roboticist. The workshops are aimed at co-creating imaginary robot designs with the local community in Buzău (RO), Murcia (ES) and Vimodrone (IT)

- Creating 2 virtual 3D models of robots with basic animated movements based on the outputs of the workshops.

Selection criteria:
- Good knowledge of 3D modeling and animation software (preferably, but not restricted to Cinema 4D, Maya, 3ds Max)
- At least 1 year of professional experience
- Based in Romania, Spain, or Italy
- Good knowledge of English (you will work with an international team)
