For half a century, the National Film and Television School (NFTS) has developed some of Britain and the world’s top creative talent. It is widely acknowledged to be the top school of its kind in the UK and one of the best internationally. In 2018, the NFTS was awarded both the BAFTA for Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema and the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education.
We are now looking for a part time Animation Producing tutor.  This will ideally be someone with extensive animation industry experience, who enjoys working with students and helping them bring their ideas to fruition.
The role is a part-time contracted job, involving approximately 30 to 35 days per year. Most teaching is carried out at the NFTS’ Beaconsfield Studios home, and is concentrated across October to December and also February to April — with more intermittent involvement once films start shooting around May.  This would suit professionals working within the industry on a part time or freelance basis.

JOB DESCRIPTION

Animation Producing Tutor
Purpose of role:
All NFTS Producing students (ten per year) are required to produce a graduation animation film, working with student directors from the School’s highly regarded Animation department.  In many instances, producing students have little or no experience of producing animated films prior to entering the School.  The role of the tutor is to provide them with a good introduction to producing animation, and to animation techniques. We encourage work across a wide range of techniques, from stop motion line animation to CG, pixellation, puppetry, etc.
As Animation Producing Tutor you will:
Work alongside Heads of Department (HoDs) such as Animation and Screenwriting to supervise the creative development of scripts through to animatic and production
Establish and agree project budgets with the student Producers
Monitor the pipeline, and costs, as projects go through production to delivery

The role requires good interpersonal skills, tact and patience, together with the ability to recognise and foster talent, whilst also ensuring students reach the technical standards required of them. Tutors enjoy the experience of observing the students grow and develop their skills and passion in order to work professionally in the industry.
