I'm personally hoping this does work out and we get something involving Optimus and Megatron's early years as well that incorporates some of the pluses from the various fiction over the years. That would make me extremely happy.

The other, a 3D CG Supervisor position, tells us something a lot meatier about what is currently happening with Hasbro, as it reveals that a whole new feature animation division is being set up, also under Hasbro Entertainment banners. And remember how it was rumoured that an animated Cybertron sequel was in the pitching works..? Take a read for yourselves, and head here for the job application!

As part of Hasbro Entertainment, Boulder Media is building a new feature animation division. We are excited to offer a talented 3D CG Supervisor the opportunity to join our very successful and established animation studio as we expand into a new area. We will be producing the first 3D CG theatrical feature film made entirely in Ireland. The movie is based on a very well-known Hasbro property and we can’t wait to bring it to the big screen for the first time.

The 3D CG Supervisor will play a vital role in building the new studio pipeline along with the rest of the team.

The 3D CG Supervisor will bring their expertise to the technical aspects of the project while working in collaboration with the production team. As such, they serve as a key member of the project’s leadership team and help define Boulder’s pipeline. At the beginning, you will have an important role in the look development, raising the quality while ensuring the assigned areas of production have sufficient technical, capital and human resources to meet the deadline.

I hope it starts pre war for maybe half an hour with the rest being the war and then the last 10 minutes being after they leave Cybertron and how they got to Earth and such and a good reason why Optimus had such a small crew of himself, Jazz, Ratchet, Ironhide and presumably Bee and Hot Rod since they were together on Earth and Prime did send Bee to Earth so that means that presumably the two were together until Hot Rod went and left for reasons.

Maybe the Bee movie will have a couple of other guys with him like Cliffjumper if those on set photos are meant to be believed.

Great planning, Hasbro! Do a show about the early days of Cybertron the same year you decide the original Primes are too obscure to get proper figures. That would have been a perfect tie in for the kids. :roll:

Jobs at Boulder Media for Hasbro

Motto: "Attitude of gratitude"
Weapon: Arc-Welders
Several jobs are available at Boulder Media for Hasbro. For those in the know Boulder Media has been in charge of making Rescue Bots. If you have ever wanted to live the dream they are looking for skilled artists and animators. Most of these jobs can be done from anywhere but it seems that a lot are based in Dublin. It will be interesting to see who will be working on upcoming projects.

We previously reported on a new logo for Rescue Bots Academy, which is in development by Boulder Media. If you would like more information, have a look at this article.

I hope someone here can enlighten me, because their PR manager hasn't answered me, the application for Character Designer, AKA my literal dream job mentions that I must be "eligible for work within the EEA(European Economic Area)" which brings me the question, can someone from outside Europe be apply for that? Because it says "eligible" not "must live in one of those countries".
I'm super excited for the job and actually meet most of the criteria, but I need to now if I can apply for that from another continent before I send my application.
Thanks!

As far as I can tell, the positions this company are offering are for those who are willing to move to Ireland.

There are several artists positions available currently. Many of them state that the work can submitted "anywhere". As far as professional digital artist jobs go, the application process is one of the least grueling I've ever encountered. Apply. What do you have to lose?
