How do I hire a Character Designer? AmazeVR is an immersive technologies company creating Amaze Immersive Concerts, a full-service virtual concert solution. Through Amaze Immersive Concerts, fans come face-to-face with their favorite artists in a virtual experience through integrating the artist's performance in 8K+ stereoscopic live-action VR video into surreal environments that transcend reality. Our vertically integrated distribution model maximizes quality and reach - offline, through international movie theaters with haptic motion chairs and the Amaze Immersive Tour Bus as a traveling pop-up; and online, through the Amaze app, the top VR video platform since 2017.
Looking for a Character Designer to create the concept art and designs that help bring a VR experience's characters to life. They will inform, inspire, and touch on many aspects of our creative pipeline. A character designer translates a director's ideas into drawings, creating designs that service character personality, movement, and performance and providing a wide range of expression for animators to act with on screen. Character designers also provide technical turnarounds, pose pages, and expression sheets to inform character creation in modeling and rigging. They are also responsible for drawings and color packets to explain the construction and detail of character costuming to inform surfacing and simulation.
