Hold the front page! The New York Times’s T Brand Studio is currently seeking animators who are rethinking the way stories are told in advertising.
In 2015, the Studio put out a call to discover the best up-and-coming filmmaking talent from around the world. The goal? To match new talent with its advertising partners. Since then, the 2015 Selects have worked on over 20 films with the Studio, creating industry-leading, award-winning content for clients such as Cartier, Belvedere and UBS.
Previous T Brand Studio animation work includes a mixed media video for Franklin Templeton on a 225-year-old investment; a wellness guide for Fairlife; and a look at the "History of Spinny Things" for Pure Storage.
Now, T Brand is putting out a new call for animators. They're looking for stop-motion geniuses, claymation kings and queens, 2D animation wizards and motion graphic masters. No style is out of the running! If you’re using animation to tell stories in exciting, innovative and highly visual ways, they want to get to know you and your work.
T Brand will choose five animators to join The Selects for 2017. This group will have an opportunity to partner with its award-winning video team to generate creative ideas and make animated videos for premier advertising clients. The Selects will also be featured in a branded post on the New York Times online and announced at its NewFronts presentation in May 2017.
