Production Coordinator

Mid-City, Los Angeles Animation
Skydance offers a dynamic, inclusive, and ever-evolving culture where innovative ideas are welcomed, and growth fostered. The partnership between unique creativity and technological advancements are demonstrated within each pillar of the company. At the heart of it all is a commitment to boldly entertaining and relevant storytelling.
 
While all Animation studios look to hire people who are creative and hard-working, Skydance Animation is specifically looking for pioneers who seek to push the limits of what the world’s most collaborative art form can achieve, and to give those pioneers the space and the resources to build a new studio that’s doing something different.
 
If you’ve ever dreamt of what the early days of Hollywood must have been like, of what it takes to roll up your sleeves and break new ground, figure out a new process, and to one day say, “I was there when it all began,” then welcome aboard…
Skydance Animation is hiring a Production Coordinator to join the team of our first feature film. This position reports to the Production Supervisor and will support the team in bringing the movie to the finish line! The role requires the ability to prioritize and organize the workflow for day-to-day needs. The ideal candidate has previous PC experience within the animation pipeline, is proactive with strong follow-through, and has a passion for growing within production management!
